^ drakes is just a rebranded Astorflex. The Astorflex are nice though I couldn't get on with the toebox, it's wide fitting.

Clarks Made In Italy are quite a step up in quality from standard ones. Nicer shape than Astorflex IMO.

Looking for a hiking boot type o thing. Is there much of a difference between Danner, Diemme and Fracap?

Danner are way above if your actually using them for hiking, can’t beat the quality

Got a pair of the classic Mountain Light Danner but they don't fit me well enough for hiking (which I actually wanted them for) as they are a bit narrow - UK9 if anyone is interested, I can't return them now.
They were the only ones with a full Gore-Tex liner and seemed best build quality, Union made as well. Fracap and Diemme seem very similar, Fracap do custom orders now.

Yeah I also use Danner Mountain Lights for hiking and Danner Lights in warmer weather.
Had to buy EE width in both pairs as standard were too narrow

Do fancy a pair of Viberg's. I don't wear my Iron Rangers as much as a used to but I feel that a boot could be a good idea, given the constant rain and the fact I predominantly wear suede. Worth the money?

Cheers. Was leaning towards Danner so that's what I'll get.
