As hillwalking companions go, the Kansas boots are about as reliable and good-natured as they come. These boots treat you right. They know when to ease up and let the miles pass in friendly comfort, and they know when to step up and pull you up that rock face.It’s that priceless combination of flex and strength that make these a great hillwalking boot. The supple, oiled leather makes for a comfortable ride fresh from the box and I found them to have an easy motion, despite being a fairly stiff boot.Their ankle and relatively firm last makes them stable and secure over most ground, and after just a mile or two, I was striding over uneven ground without hesitation, helped along by the grippy outsole. It was only on the fanged sections of a gnarly Munro that I would have wanted a more ridged boot. They can heat up when you really get motoring, and the robust nature of the boot does mean they carry a few more grams in weight than more casual boots, but I found their overall performance and comfort levels more than offset such minor grumbles.
