Yukon

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased in 1989 for a hike in the Himalayas. Re-soled them several years ago. Still the best fitting boot/shoe I own. My boots still feel great after 25 years of usage. They needed to be resoled once, but given the mileage and terrain covered, fully expected and worth it. My hikes are not as demanding as they used to be, but my feet are much more particular. These boots have molded to my feet, and I am hoping that I never need to buy another pair as they are very comfortable and provide excellent… Full review

Piuma

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Asolo Piuma is a light, articulate mid-height boot well suited to hiking, backpacking, and general outdoors use. Despite some minor issues with traction, I'd recommend it to any hiker or backpacker it fits. This is the closest thing to an "all purpose" boot I've encountered. Fit: I've got a very neutral, average foot: Average arch, average volume, average elongation, etc. My stride is very neutral and balanced too. Though I measure a 10, I prefer a 10.5 in most shoes to accommodate a thicker… Full review

Power Matic 400 GV

rated 2 of 5 stars Rigid backpacking boots with excellent support and cushion for heavy weights carries. But with a big flaw, the Vibram soles have disassembled after less than a year, and it's impossible to glue them back. I love them for their toughness and structure. Still I would not recommend them for anyone. Four years ago, while preparing for a six months backpacking trip to New-Zealand and Nepal, I came across this boots. I hesitated first because of their high price tag and heavy weight, but the firm's reputation… Full review

Shiraz GV Boot

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid, off-trail, 3-season backpacking boot. Kevlar performance for those who know. I wear euro size 46 and that's the boot size I own. Compared to others I have tried the fit is snug but correct for my medium volume feet, using the 3/4 length Birkenstock orthotic essential to my foot health in preventing heel blisters ascending. The boot is made of Schoeller Keprotec fabric instead of leather, with suede stitched onto the rand and heel, with rubber glued to the suede on the toe running about 2/3… Full review

TPS 535 V

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Comfortable and supportive boot is let down by a soft and delicate midsole. Outsole delaminated before it was in need of replacement. Resoling requires expert cobbler. Very comfortable and supportive boot, but the new "athletic" style layered midsole does not hold up to abuse. I have owned several pairs of Gore-Tex Asolos, and was impressed by this boot's initial comfort and adjustability. I abuse my boots, but the previous pair took nearly¬†10 years of monthly hiking, packing, and trail work until… Full review
