Filson Uplander Boots

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome all purpose boot that will outlast me. I have had these boots for over a year now so I feel pretty comfortable reviewing them in depth. I love these boots. I have a fair number of boots and these really are the best ones I own. These were my work boots when I was working in South Asia, they were my hiking boots when I trekked the Annapurna Circuit, they are my hunting boots, and they are my winter boots.  So the fit, I was excited about these because they offered them in EE. I usually have… Full review

Asolo Men's Power Matic 200 GV

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I loved these boots. They were everything I was looking for in a full leather option for rough ground. In the end both the boot and the company let me down badly. I paid top dollar for these boots that I expected to be with me for a long time. The previous pair of good mountain boots I had lasted for 12 years. I ordered the boots from the internet and they fitted well which pleased me as I am a 1/2 size and normally need to be tried before I would part with this sort of money. Everything went well… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Dangerously poor durability leading to multi-mile barefoot hike over rugged lava. Not suitable for guide work or forestry, unless you carry a spare pair! This is the second pair of Asolo 520's I have purchased from REI. The first pair performed well and outlasted any other boot I have used in my professional guide/forester occupation. This second pair of Asolos has suffered a complete delamination of the right boot after seven months of similar use. The failure occurred mid-hike and resulted in… Full review

Asolo Power Matic 100 GV

rated 4 of 5 stars Asolo is quality gear. These boots are great for heavy loads and for rocky ground. If you're looking for a durable boot with mountaineering capabilities, these might be a good option. Asolo makes great boots. I know several guys who've taken this brand as their brand of choice for a tour of duty over in the Middle East, more than once. That says a lot about quality and durability. So I bought these Power Matics based on features and design. They are equipped with roller lace guides, so they tighten… Full review

Alico Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are someone who needs his feet time to adjust...then go buy your North Face or some other Chinese made crap and move along. This boot company makes an old fashioned, truly bomb proof pair of footwear. From the hand-stitched soles to the absolute top quality leather, you cannot go wrong with these boots if you actually give them a shot! I live in the Northeast Kingdom part of Vermont. There is no place more trying (besides the White Mountains in New Hampshire) on a pair of new boots. If anyone… Full review

Vasque Men's Sundowner GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Great leather, but the sole is pure garbage. I had a pair from 1999 until 2008. They were the best boots I ever owned, but (like all boots) eventually just wore out. I wear them every day, in every condition. I replaced my '99 models with the new model. They looked identical, but the new ones broke in MUCH faster (about two weeks instead of a month). At about the year mark the sole separated from the leather. I assumed this was due to how I treated them, but was upset as $200 boots should last longer… Full review

Lowa Men's Tibet GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Best all leather boots I've ever owned! Due to a crush injury to my right lower leg I have an extremely hard time finding boots/shoes that help with the pain from crushed nerves. That being said! I found this pair of boots at a resale shop new in the box and unworn, for $25! They fit perfectly! The owner had received them as a gift and never tried them on.  I started wearing them everyday to my hunting lease, rain or shine. I've never had a pair of boots that compare! I mean, I've worn Rockys exclusively… Full review

Danner Mountain Light II

rated 3 of 5 stars Great boot for most people looking for a combination of a traditional and more modern hiking boot. It's a good boot, merging old and new concepts to create a comfortable and durable hiking and trekking boot. One piece of good leather to last possibly a lifetime and stitchdown construction that can be resoled. The kletterlift sole paired with the EVA midsole offers the best shock absorption I have experienced on any footwear except maximalist running shoes. Unfortunately, a heel counter issue (like… Full review

Asolo Women's TPS 520 GV

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great foot and ankle protection for multi-day trips with a heavier pack. Excellent performance off-trail. Brand confidence overall is positive for footwear in the middle-upper price range. Ah hiking boots. One of the most difficult backpacking necessities to purchase and review. Specifics: This review is for Asolo GV 520 LW size 10. These boots were purchased from REI. Weight: Ridiculous = 4.2lbs (pair) These are backpacking boots for multi-day trips and heavy packs, over the ankle, lace-up, full-grain… Full review
