Tester Ped Baker Time tested Six months/4000 miles What’s good? With D30 CE an­kle ar­mour (a jelly like sub­stance that stiff­ens on im­pact) and Sym­pa­tex water­proof lin­ing, the Capri­nos are clas­si­cally styled but boast some proven boot tech. The fit is roomy and they’re quick to get on and off thanks to round laces that pull apart eas­ily. A gus­seted tongue suc­cess­fully keeps wa­ter from en­ter­ing through the laces in foul weather (pro­vid­ing your wa­ter­proofs cover the tops of the boots). The sole is stitched on but the rub­ber tread is glued so should be easy to re­place when the time comes. What’s not? The tongue is bulky and ini­tially rubbed my an­kles sore. Re­gard­less of the brand I al­ways find water­proof lin­ings to be a lit­tle sweaty to wear all day and the Capri­nos are no dif­fer­ent. Wear­ing them a lit­tle looser than nor­mal helps, and it also eases the rub­bing when walk­ing. There’s no gear shift pad on the left foot, some­thing I would have ex­pected for this price.
