Without doubt the most comfortable boots I have ever owned in 45 years of hiking great straight out of the box.Expecting these to last for many years cheaper Chinese made boots in the past have proven a false economy.Do however check sizes as I bought EUR44 wide last normally I am UK9.5 but was advised that these tend to be a tighter fit than normal.

Excellent quality beautifully made fit perfectly. Not worn in tough conditions yet but not anticipating any problems.

I purchased these boots to replace a pair of Zamberlans that are 25 years old and now showing a few battle scars. As other people have commented they are slim and small for size so I chose a size bigger than normal as well as the wide last which seem to fit well. From a personal perspective I am having to juggle footbeds in order to compensate for the support that is built into the sole.

Had these boots around 4 months now they are superbly comfortable, took me a little while to break them in but once I got use to them I was off. Being taller than most people I burn through boots pretty quickly but I get the feeling these will last a while and when the fragrant lady wife wears her current other Brand pair out she’s going for some of these (in her size obviously not 12)

A well made value for money comfortable walking boot. The wide fit model is ideal for me
Review by Kevc
I have had Zamberlan boots before. They are well built and durable. These were comfortable from the first walk (10 wet muddy miles). You cannot go wrong with a Vibram sole and the sole on these is good and wide which helps with stability and on boggy ground. I like the grey leather and prefer none gaudy styling so these are spot on. They are well designed the softer leather is in the right places to allow flexibility around the ankle and the tongue. The tongue is well designed and nice and high which helps keep out water. These are good tough boots providing plenty of protection and will likely last a good few miles.

Second pair of these which says it all. Great a wider fit available for my wide feet and to enable orthotic insoles to fit
Review by Malcolm Woodcock
Well made comfortable and waterproof. These are the third lot of Zamberlan vioz I have purchased (the last ones survived 12 years of very rugged use!)Would recommend buying the boots made on the wide last though.
Review by Mr Pilling
Had Zamberlan boots before and have always been happy with them these are very good quality and after a few miles will I anticipate be very good. It is very difficult to find wide boots so I am very pleased with the fit. Most comfortable right from the start.
Review by Keith Burns
You get exactly what you pay for with these boots. Brilliant boots but being leather requires a gentle wear in to start with and zamberlans own care or nikwax to look after your boots and tootsies
Review by Paul Templeton
I researched these boots for quality and fit before my purchase. Having a wide foot I chose the Zambelan Wide Last which meant I didnt need to get a larger size as I normally do.The quality and finish of the boot is outstanding with a beautiful design. They fit perfectly straight out of the box and despite being fairly heavy duty dont need breaking in. Even though the midsole is quite rigid they are still comfortable for day hikes on the flat. The reviews and videos I have seen give me confidence that these boots are completely waterproof and with the onepiece leather upper and Goretex inner they are likely to stay that way. All features of the boot have been well though out to give optimum performance at a very good price
Review by Stu H
Excellent boots they feel very sturdy but are well cut and comfortable. Im still in the process of breaking them in before heading into the hills but Im pretty confident theyll deal with anything in their way.
Review by Customer
Excellent service and good quality product. Very easy return system when wrong size is ordered.
Review by Kj Cambridge
It is better to order 1 size bigger and wider version. Italian measurements are in mm or in Cm.
Review by Paul
Very pleased with these. Expensive but look and feel really good quality and very well made. Am looking forward to wearing them and no reason to believe they will not live up to expectations.
Review by Stephen Ellis
Slightly wider than the usual zamberlan which makes this one superbly comfortable boot but havent used it for walking yet but quality so much better than most boots
Review by Nick Townley
I have rather wide feet and these are a better fit than the standard Vioz GTX boot. Im hoping for another 20 years service just like my old Zamberlans (OK I do take care of the boots and do limited mountain walking)!
Review by Fergus O'donovan
The wider last just perfect and really comfortable. Just put them on and went walking perfect.
Review by David Machin
Boots arrived 11/01/16, polished and walked 9 miles 13/01/16 on a forest trail test run. As expected, boots stiff at first but over a couple of hours became comfortable. The wide last and size (9) proved right for me with my thin and thicker socks, very pleased with my purchase. Well done to Uttings for a fast delivery.
