Asolo Men's 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 Asolo's, and was impressed by this boot's initial comfort and adjustability. I abuse my boots, but the previous pair nearly took 10 years of monthly hiking, packing and trail work until… Full review

Asolo Women's TPS 535

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent long lasting comfortable boots. I bought my first pair of these boots more than 10 years ago and they hiked all of the Long Trail and more. I carry from 25-30 lbs on 2- to 4-day overnight hikes. My old boots are beat up on the outside, but still very usable and have been put on consignment at my local gear shop. As I have aged, my foot size has changed, so I have purchased another new pair of the exact same boot one size larger, with the Goretex. Instantly comfortable. Looking forward… Full review

Esatto Men's Classic Hiker

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are expensive, as other reviewers pointed out, but for those who have had issues with off-the-shelf footwear, these are a very smart long-term solution. They are durable, well made, and will last a very long time with care and maintenance. I have two differently sized feet, with high arches and a wide toe-box, so for me, this was a smart decision. The decision to finally order custom boots came from a hiking trip I took a few months ago. I realized I needed to invest in a better long-term… Full review

Lowa Men's Tibet Pro GTX

rated 2 of 5 stars Returned the boots after two days. I was looking for a new pair of boots, preferably a more robust boot than the one I’ve been using for the last four years (Zamberlan 308 Trekker RR).  Most of my hikes are in the Northeast, in the high peaks area of the Adirondacks and in the White Mountains.  When I tried on the Tibet Pro, I tried both the narrow and regular width. I have narrow feet, but the regular width fit me perfectly, although, I have to say I couldn’t feel much difference. I use… Full review

AKU 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

Rugged Outback Waterproof Hikers

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Would never touch these again — total waste of money. Heel collapsed and the sole left the shoe second time out. Do not bother buying these shoes. You will be disappointed. Read the other reviews. Full review

Zamberlan Men's 996 Vioz GT

rated 4 of 5 stars Very good backpacking boot. No break-in period for me.  With a liner and good wool sock, it is like wearing slipper. Stong lacing. Nice overall grip. I use them in warm/cold condition (5°C to 12°C) and I was very comfortable and dry. Late I will add a winter review. Nice support with a 70 pounds backpack. 20 km hike and no blisters. Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought boots at Wal-mart. Started leaking after wearing a short while. Will most certainly tell all my friends to not buy Herman Survivors products. Not worth the money at all so don't waste your money. Full review
