    HIKER boots

    Taranaki Rubber Company Hiker Boots.
    I have 2 pairs, surplus to requirements.
    Well padded and comfy, big footprint for the size with great grip.
    500 grams lighter than the Skellerup hikers for the pair.
    This model of boot is physically 1 size larger than their tag sizing.

    Size 8. Worn once. Too large for me.
    Actual internal size 27.5cm, so more like UK size9 / Euro43
    685g weight each
    $55 + post

    Size 7. Worn on 2 daytrips. Doesn't have room for my arch support insoles.
    Actual internal length 26.5cm, equiv to UK size8 / Euro42
    650g weight
    $45 +post

    No worries. If you are usually NZ/UK size 8 then should be Ok with the 7s. Can always swap out if the larger size turn out to be better suited. PM me address details please and I'll look into postage tomorrow.

    Size 8/9 still here. Basically a new boot for $55 ! No, lets make it $50. Worth trying for someone surely ? Tread grip is excellent. I bought the wrong size.
