Women's Heritage Hydroguard : Black/Charcoal
There’s no question that we’re big fans of the classic alpine hiker styles which inspired the Heritage, but if we’re honest, the Heritage is really a celebration of beautiful, buttery, aniline-dyed leather. Since this style is made primarily from one big piece of material, there’s no visual chaos to hide behind. The leather takes center stage, and man, what a piece of leather. 2.2mm worth of grade A, full grain, high oil content leather. This is the stuff that looks better each time you wear it. These boots will keep a record of your adventures in their creases and scratches, the patina building over time. Due to its high oil content, it has a lot of water resistance built in, but to keep you completely dry, we offer this shoe with a waterproof liner as well. Don’t let the robust look fool you, though, this is an everyday, light hiker, not a super-stiff mountaineering shoe. We’ve added just enough rigidity to keep you going over rough terrain without sacrificing walkability. That beautiful leather upper is mated to our light weight and super comfy half-cup EVA outsole with mild lugging and super grippy rubber tread. The Heritage is winning combination of quality, style and comfort.

Adventures With Ridgemont Hikers
See earlier review below. They were great for about a year. Then the rubber sole started to wear down. And soon after the leather started to separate from the rubber base letting in water. Splits in the sole too. Basically great to look at and fine if you wear them intermittently. But essentially poorly made. To be fair they gave my half my money back. But it’s just a shame that such a good looking boot has to be made so shoddily. They look great but perform badly. Seems like the only way to get a quality and long-lasting boot like this is to pay £300+.
I loved these boots. Stylish and comfortable. However, I have a bit of concern over their durability.
After about 12 months of reasonably regular wear, the sole started to crumble for no apparent reason. Just a chunk fell off, then some more. Not just the rubber bit, but through to the foam and all.
Had them for 3 years and they're starting to let water in. Used them about 16 times a year and have looked after them. Ah well, the more expensive options it is.
These boots were the perfect gift for my wife. She has yet to truly break them in but she so far she is very happy with them.
