Introduction

Tokay (https://tokay-ultimate.com/) owner Robin Lamy contacted us to ask if we could follow up on our original Tokay review, with a trial and write-up for the new model: Tokay Flight. In the interest of transparency, Tokay provided us both with a free pair to trial and keep, and then had no further involvement at all. For the pedants, we’re afraid that the term ‘cleats’, ‘boots’ and even ‘studs’ are used interchangeably in our write up. On to the review…
