The manufacture of a modern hill or mountain boot represents a unique blend of traditional boot making skills and modern technology.
Whilst technology continues to provide a variety of new materials which aid the development of modern footwear, it is the boot maker's skills that differentiate quality boots from cheaper boots.
It is these skills, in the selection of leathers, the lasting and make up of the boot and the harnessing of the most appropriate technology, which provide the magic ingredients in good footwear.
