It has a fully padded footbed for extra comfort.
The Beatriz is supplied with a spare set of alternative bootlaces.
Handcrafted in Cape Town, South Africa.
The inner sole doesn't have much cushioning but the boot is fantastic to hike in. It handles the rugged ground very well and also support's my ankles they way I wanted. I'm looking forward testing it in the rain....great buy for sure!
I went on a hike with my new boots 🥾. They’re comfortable and have very good grip. I wouldn’t recommend them on a steep descent though, maybe it’s because they’re still new and they haven’t softened yet so my toes suffered a little bit. They’re solid hiking boots though and I think they’re perfect for the purpose I bought them which is to use them for a desert and bush walk in a few month’s time. Also, I think they’ll be great for casual wear. I like that very much, the dual purpose. I think I’m sold and will come back to Freestyle for other shoes.
good product for the money!
Very good quality boot with comfortable sole (double stitched so it won't come lose easily), re-enforced ankle, padded tongue and a wide toe box. I expected a shoe more like a robust trainer, but this is a proper hiking boot. I am deducting one star however, since I had to wait much longer than the stated 3w lead time, staff take forever to answer emails and did not follow delivery instructions. This is also not the first time I had these issues. The product is worth 5 stars, but this small business needs to improve on its service.
