The Rogue RB2 Light Trail Boot is a refreshingly simple and sturdy hiking boot, made in South Africa. Ideal for use in warm climates in the UK and overseas, they feature a full leather upper, grippy rubber sole, and padded ankle supports.

The Rogue RB2 Boot is made using superior African leathers, features a leather-lined footbed insole and is comfortable from the first use. Scratch marks and scars occur naturally on these hides; these marks should give your boots the unique rugged 'bushveld' look, indicative of the African outdoors!

  As comfy as your favorite pair of slippers, unfortunately the soles fell off after 15 months. I'm going to get them repaired however.

  First impressions are excellent. The boots are stiff as some other reviewers said, but I think this is a great sign that they haven't gone through any artificial wearing process during manufacture. Aesthetically the boots look good too, good colour and shape and quite clearly very high quality. This is my first day with them, so I don't know how they will do in the long run, but first impressions are very good. The sizing is slightly big, I normally fit 10, and bought the 9 1/2 for these boots on the advice of other reviews, which is pretty much perfect, if not still slightly long around the toes. But I have pretty stubby toes anyway, so not a big issue. Finally, as usual, customer service has been top quality with woodlore, they got the product to my door with next day delivery, no problem at all.

  Very nicely made boots from lovely leather but the shape of them did not suit my feet. They were very flat soles and the front of the boot dig into my toes making them really uncomfortable to wear. I think is partly due to the shape of my feet and partly due to the shoe design particularly of the toe cap.

  Very comfy and a great day-to -day boot, but require some serious breaking in. The leather is very thick and they certainly seem very robust and hard wearing because of this, however it does mean that there is nearly no ankle flexibility until softened. This was a particular issue around the tongue where, because of the bellows tongue, there is at least 6mm of folded leather between the laces and your foot. They are also very roomy so excellent for wearing thick socks, which are almost a necessity. I'm size 10 and the size 9.5s are, if anything, slightly too big.

  I've had these for nearly a month now and have worn them every day. They were bought to replace a pair of lightweight Berghaus walking boots I'd had for a couple of years. Firstly, the usual first class service from Woodlore make buying stuff from them so easy. 36 hours from ordering to putting them on! On opening the box I was impressed by the ruggedness and strength of the leather and design. These are 'proper' outdoor leather boots! At first they seemed a little 'clumpy' when walking round. The leather, being fairly thick, was quite stiff and it took a couple of days for them to soften and 'bend' when walking. I can't say I'd be happy doing a long multi mile/day walk straight from the box because of that. But after a day or two of local walking, for a good hour or two they were much better. The full bellows tongue is very soft and comfortable and doesn't dig in to the top of your foot. They do leak! But it doesn't flood in like some boots. The absence of a 'Gore-Tex' type lining is the main issue with that I think. But the upshot, and I'm now a convert to non 'Gore-Tex' boots, is they dry out quickly and by the time I've walked home, assuming its not raining!, they were virtually dry. By the end of the day, just with them sat in the boot cupboard, they were dry again inside and out. I rinse them off under a tap after walks and wash them with saddle soap weekly, then apply a dubbin to them to help the moisture reduction. That and a pair of waterproof socks and it's happy days! Three and a half weeks later they are comfy and pliable and are some of the nicest walking boots I've owned. I did buy some gel inserts before I bought them, after reading a couple of the reviews, but so far haven't used them, and I don't think I will be doing. Why add something that will trap any moisture and prevent them drying? And for me they're not needed as an insole, the boots are fine without. The next tests will be my Journeyman Course in October and Namibia in November with Ray. At least then if they fail there I've got someone to complain too! But seriously I don't think I will be doing. A very happy customer all round!

  All I can say is 'buy these boots. Don't look any further!' I've tried tons of similar designed boots and these are a world apart. I will be buying more once I wear the soles out! probably in 10 years! Absolutely excellent boots and seriously comfortable.

  Really comfortable boot from the start. Soft, yet supportive. Size is good - consistent with other brands. Shaped at rear to prevent trousers snagging. Very pleased with this purchase - would recommend.

  Love these boots. I bought them in a hurry when I realised I didn't have a suitable pair of boots for a recent trip to New Zealand, and they arrived the day before I left. They've been great and I find I'm wearing them all the time as they are so comfortable. Was a bit worried about sizing - I'm usually a 9.5 - 10, depending on manufacturer, so I ordered the 9.5. They fit great, although I'd need to break them in a bit if I wanted to wear thick hiking socks. I also replaced the inner soles with a much better aftermarket pair. Overall, great value for money. Great boots that I'll wear a lot.

  Love these. Generous toe box makes them very comfortable amongst other nice attributes. Hammered them in the Kimberley last year with no break-in period and they performed nicely.

Are these boots waterpoof?

No. The Rogue range of boots are designed with the African bush in mind and therefore are not waterproof.
