Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

AKU Tengu Lite GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It's impressive what you get when science meets exceptional, quality materials. A great trekking boot fit for an adrenaline junkie. I was sent the Tengu for testing from AKU.  When I first put the boot on, it literally slurped my foot into it; it makes an audible sound. The boot has what is called a Goretex sock. It's somewhat like a neoprenish sock that's built right into the boot. It is quite comfortable and form fitting.  I wore the boots to work each day for a week thinking that I'd have to… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredibly short break-in time, extremely comfortable, and durable boot. These are the best and longest lasting boots I've ever owned. I use these boots as both hikers and my daily work boots. My last pair lasted 2.5 years of everyday use both on the trail and in a chemistry lab. I've thrown everything at these boots from rocks, trees, and chainsaws; to industrial solvents like acetonitrile and methanol. The only reason I needed a new pair was because a solvent spill finally ate a hole in the Goretex… Full review

Asolo Men's Power Matic 200 GV

rated 4 of 5 stars Full leather boot maintains waterproof with minimal maintenance, even after two years and over 100 miles of use. Rollerguide lacing supports even lacing pressure and the firm sole is great for heavy loads and rough terrain. I purchased these boots two years ago after retiring another set of Asolo boots. I tried every boot I could find, light, heavy, soft, stiff etc. I liked these the best. Yes, boots are particular to each person's feet, but there are a few things on this boot that I really enjoy. … Full review

Limmer Stock Boots

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought boots off shelf. Horrible. Big waste of money, low tech and ugly. If you can get acclimated to a daily beating these boots are perfect. Don’t do it. Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 2 of 5 stars A heavy boot, but among the most comfortable and most water resistant I have ever worn, but due to the catastrophic failure of the sole material these can be a dangerous boot for tough hikes As a mature tramper/bushwalker from New Zealand a lot of our tramping is in wet and muddy conditions. When I first tried on the Asolos I thought, at last, a boot that feels as though it was made for me. Over the first few years of occasional tramping they felt great, till today's tramp, an easy, four-hour lowland… Full review

Asolo Men's AFX 520 GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These were great boots but I also had the sole disintegrate. I paid over $450 and they are useless—don't buy them These were great shoes but like other reviewers I hadn't used them for over 12 months. I then went to put them in bag to go on a hike and found the material between the sole and the upper had turned to powder and separated—now useless and can't be fixed. When you pay that sort of money you expect them to last. Full review

Meindl Island Pro MFS

rated 4 of 5 stars Great boot, very comfortable, bulletproof. Very, very poor after-sales service. Had these for about four years and done many backpacking/trekking kms both in ANZ, Europe, and Asia. Extremely comfortable and supportive boots and fitted very well given that I have fairly aggressive orthotics and find getting a good fit a big challenge. I am 98kgs, so a lot of weight to support when you add another 20kgs or so, but no issues at all with these boots in that regard. My only complaint about the boots… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great until the sole split apart from the boot. If I pulled down where the sole material is missing, it pulls apart from the upper part of the boot. Unfortunately I have the same issue as others have with this boot. It was awesome while it lasted. I hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and out again with them years ago and did some minor hikes after. I was getting them cleaned up today and noticed the sole coming off the main boot. I was going to wear these on a hike to Mt. Everest Base Camp… Full review

Vasque Montana

rated 5 of 5 stars This is my second pair of these boots. They require new soles every once in a while but are otherwise bomb-proof and work well with crampons. While you can use running shoes on well-worn hiking trails, these boots are good for rugged off-trail and winter backpacking in rocky terrain. I saw some people looking for this boot. As I understand it, Vasque was the exclusive distributor for Gronell until sales of this product dropped off for the cheaper / lighter boots in the late '90s. These boots go… Full review
