A pair that fit your feet! Get to a decent outdoor shop and try a few on. Presumably you want a less stiff pair - they will mostly be fabric with a membrane nowadays, but leather ones can still be had which may remain water-proof/resistant a bit longer.
Width, length and shape vary in both feet and boots. Then check reviews etc for comments on longevity, waterproofness etc.
Saloman were bought by Adidas a few years back and the quality has really dropped.
I like Berghaus boots for general hiking, dog walking etc, lightweight, good goretex implementation, really comfortable and reasonably priced, especially if you go for last years colours. My last pair lasted 5 years and that was being worn 3 or 4 times a week for about 8 miles a go, not bad for a fabric/suede boot. But saying that, I’m not sure they’d last too many trips over Striding Edge.
My last pair were Asolos which lasted 19 years of heavy (all senses) use, including in some trying conditions over long periods in places like Panama, India and Iceland (yay! I namedropped them), and were forgotten soaking wet a number of times, retrieved as a plastic bag full of mold and revived.
I bought a cheapish pair from Mountain Warehouse, and the soles are well on their way to worn out in a year, and the uppers are cracking despite oiling. They are shit. Don’t buy them.
These folks ( German shop ) have good deals on most of the time if you know your size in Scarpa and Salomon, amongst many others. Free delivery to UK on orders over 50 quid. The outlet section in their site is worth a look.
