ANATOM Q2 BOOT REVIEW

REVIEWED: February 2019

"...a comfortable boot from day one!"


PROS:

  • Lightweight all leather walking boot
  • Soft leather ankle area and padded tongue
  • Cushioned sole unit
  • Very little 'breaking in' needed

CONS:

  • Not really a con but Anatom has advised that Nikwax waterproofing Wax for Leather is probably the best product to 'feed' and waterproof these boots! (Rather than any other treatments such as Dubbin)

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

Outer: Finest 2.5mm Italian full grain waterproof leather

Inner: Tri-aria waterproof and breathable membrane

Anatom Q2 Boot

The Anatom Q2 boot has been designed with comfort in mind! This is a lightweight leather walking boot made from 2.5mm thick quality Italian leather. The design incorporates a Vibram sole unit for grip and traction along with a soft suede collar and a padded tongue for that all important extra comfort. This leather boot has virtually stitch free leather uppers hugely reducing the likelihood of stitching failure or leakage. 

The Anatom Q2 boot has been designed for a range of outdoor activities. If you're looking for a pair of all leather boots for dog walking or hill walking, then the Q2 will definitely fulfil all your expectations. The leather uppers will keep your feet dry, whilst the sole unit is great for wet hill walking and for providing plenty of grip when walking down hills. The steel hooks and quick lacing system make it effortless to put this boot on and to pull it off, whilst the inner lining prevents rubbing and friction!

Below are some of the other great features which guarantee to make this a comfortable, stable and long lasting walking boot: 

Vibram sole unit

The classic walking and hiking Vibram sole unit has been carefully manufactured to offer optimal balance of traction and durability. As we know, when out on rough ground, you may be faced with unpredictable terrain. If this is the case, this sole unit will certainly respond and will help keep you up on your feet - whilst still offering great comfort too! 

Waterproof and breathable membrane (Tri-aria Membrane)Tri-aria Anatom Q2 Boots

A Tri-aria membrane helps to keep your feet dry, warm and comfortable. The membrane's design helps to wick moisture away from your foot, keeping your feet dry (and at the right temperature) all day long. Similarly the outer layer keeps water out too.

To extend the lifetime of the Tri-aria membrane, Anatom recommends using Nikwax care products. These products help to 'feed' the leather keeping the leather supple, whilst preventing the natural capabilities of the breathability of the leather. 

Other key features:

  • Padded tongue
  • Cut away ankle at the back for comfort
  • Removable insole
  • Designed and tested in Scotland

Maintenance and Care

All leather boots need proper maintenance and the Anatom Q2 is no different. Please consider the important points below:

1. Never 'force dry' your leather boots by drying them next to a radiator or in-front of a fire. Unfortunately, a speedy drying process might dry the leather out too quickly, possibly causing it to crack. Similarly, the waterproof membrane might shrink and crack, resulting in leaking shoes.

2. Regular cleaning and reproofing of the Anatom Q2 boot will help to make sure that they last for many years. Anatom recommends that you use Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather.

In summary:

The Anatom Q2 full grain leather boot is an all round boot perfect for many outdoor activities such as hill walking or dog walking!
