Zenith Leather

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This model is discontinued, I can't find them anywhere. Very comfortable. I bought mine for $90 on Sierra Trading Post. I have crossed streams etc. After reading the negative reviews here, and had no waterproof issues. I never put anything on them either. Maybe Aku's manufacturing is inconsistent. I love the leather interior lining, because it doesn't pick up burrs or other organic splintery things like fabrics do. The regular price is a bit much. They are rather lightweight, comfortable. I wear… Full review

Nef GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are gorgeous Italian lightweight hikers with top notch construction and materials. Fit is excellent on low-mid-volume foot (men's euro 44). The "teeth" of these lightweight hikers was surprising through a few miles of hardscrabble Wasatch bushwhacking. Super impressive. These are gorgeous Italian lightweight hikers with top notch construction and materials. My first use out of the box involved inadvertently going three miles off-trail speed hiking/running to catch a closing (summertime) lift… Full review

Mustang GTX

rated 1 of 5 stars Never buy an AKU boot. I bought this boot in October 2014. I used it three times and one of the boots started to bend. Normally this should not have happened. I have contacted AKU Italy and after all corresponding emails, I was left with a faulty boot. Their local dealer refuses to exchange or inspect even. I have never thought I would experience this negative experience from a reputable company. It seems they are not that reputable.  The bending boot: The non-bending part: Full review

Bellamont Suede

rated 4 of 5 stars The shoes are solid, well made, and can handle a lot more than they are designed for. I used them to carry packs off-trail in scary steep terrain as well as around town. The shoe is very lightweight, but has a solid Vibram sole underneath, giving it the ability to multi-task. It could use more support for super heavy loads, but again, it is not designed for that. Buy this shoe if you want something lightweight to wear around that can handle those last minute trips to the trail. This shoe might… Full review

Utah Top GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Best backpacking boots I've ever had. Well, since this doesn't seem to be a popular boot company and there are no reviews on it, let me be the first. I love these boots. I researched for over six months trying to find a boot for a thru hike on the AT. I wanted to buy USA made boots and tried several pair of Danners and they just were too narrow for my feet. Although the toe box appears to be narrow, I have plenty of room, but I am using only 3/4 inserts allowing more room for my toes to wiggle around. Full review
