Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

Asolo Women's TPS 520 GV

rated 3 of 5 stars High ankle, heavy-duty hiking boot for women. I recently acquired these for an insanely cheap price at a Zappo's outlet, and couldn't pass them up. I've only used them for one weekend trip so far, but found them to be decent enough, if not exactly fabulous. The boots are a good fit, and I like the design of them. They're comfortable to wear, and come up a little higher than some other boots I've used, giving a really sturdy feel with lots of ankle support. In fact, sturdy is just an all-around good… Full review

Vasque Women's Sundowner GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Solid leather, mid-ankle hiking boot. I first acquired my Sundowners in 2003, and immediately loved them. In fact, they were so comfortable, they quickly became my everyday foot attire, not just when hiking or in the woods, but even around school and home. I had them properly sized in an outdoor equipment store, so there was plenty of room in the toe. The GTX has an extra rivet up the ankle from the original sundowners, which helped me get the right amount of ankle support. The boots required no… Full review

Lowa Men's Tibet Pro GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Lowa men's Tibet Pro GTX boots are my best boots to date. I have been mountain hiking and hunting with heavy packs since the early '70s in my Vasque Whitneys. In all my equipment I pay for great performance and quality without, not just on highest price or name. My Lowa men's Tibet Pro GTX's mid-height boots have four seasons of service and are my best boots to date for non-specialized hunting, backpacking, and hiking use. I have been mountain hunting/backpacking/hiking with heavy packs since… Full review

Montrail Men's Torre GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good trekking boot. Bought these used in size 15; Normally I wear a 13 so they are a touch long in front and I tend to stub my toe. Otherwise they work pretty well for me. Good arch support and lacing system is excellent. Vibram sole has a sole pattern I would characterize as mud shedding medium traction. Seems to work OK on desert scrubs and rock hiking. Ankle support is not spectacular, but this is a mid-height trekking boot. Not a heavy hiker or mountaineering boot. Not sure this form factor… Full review

Salomon Men's Quest 4D 2 GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Reviews on boots are like reviews on pizza. Lots of different flavors with everyone having a favorite. The Quest 4D 2's are my favorite pizza. I only have about 140 miles on the Quest 4D 2's but with about 80 of them coming last week on a solo in the Eastern Sierras (go there....backpack there) I've been able to form a pretty strong opinion. A pretty basic one too. Best I've ever worn and I'm stoked to have found my way to them. I lean towards midweight hikers that are made for backpacking but work… Full review

Zamberlan Men's 996 Vioz GT

rated 5 of 5 stars Best for backpacking on trails; however, I have used them off trail. If I was limited to one pair of boots or shoes, I would keep these. They are that good. I wear a size 9 1/2 Lowe boot (Baffin) and this boot is also a size 9 1/2, so they seem true to size. Minimal break in and it accepts aftermarket footbeds. The boot has a slight rocker and it is a dream to walk in.   I do clean and treat the leather after a muddy or snowy hike. I have used them on a two-night, early winter backpack in snow… Full review

Zamberlan Men's 996 Vioz GT

rated 5 of 5 stars I buy men's boots because I need an 11.5 M in women's and those are unavailable in most brands. My 10.5 size M Zamberlan 996 VIOZ GTX fit like a dream! No break in needed. I do wear with boot socks. Mainly use for hiking purposes. Love the Italian leather and inside cushioning. As I indicated I am a lady who needs to buy men's boots because of the sizing. In a shoe I buy 11.5. M. The 996 VIOZ GTX fit me like a tee sizing down to a 10.5 (EURO 45). I wear cotton boot socks and the boots fit like they… Full review

Alico Backcountry Boot

rated 4 of 5 stars Italian built backpacking boot. Water resistant and true to size. Provides excellent ankle protection and the stiff sole assists when traveling across rocky terrain. I have terrible ankles, always have. I am just getting back into backpacking and wanted a pair of boots that provided good support, were water resistant, looked OK, would last, and wouldn't break the bank. These things deliver. I purchased online and went with my normal 9.5, and these fit me very well. There is enough room in the toe-box… Full review

Esatto Men's Classic Hiker

rated 2 of 5 stars If you are considering Esatto because you want quality boots, you can get top quality at 1/3 Esatto’s prices. If you are considering Esatto because your feet cannot fit in commercially produced boots, then you might consider Esatto, but you may still be disappointed. It took me a long time to begin writing this review because I don’t want to negatively impact another man’s livelihood. But for these prices, I should have received much better product and better service. It took many, many months… Full review
