Danner Mountain Light II

rated 5 of 5 stars Tough as nails, very comfortable. My father bought me these 14 years ago. I recently had them resoled. They are very comfortable and give great stability. I have worn them for all levels of activity. I recently sent them back to the Danner factory in Portland, Oregon, and had them resoled for the first time. They really did a nice job and it's like having a new pair of boots (except already broken in). These are not for the ultralight minimalists. They are a very traditional style and very durable… Full review

Vasque Men's Wasatch GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought these boots about 3 years ago. Horrible for walking on wet rocks, mud, snow. Would not recommend these boots to even my worse enemy. Quite a bit disappointed with how the waterproofing works, IT DOES NOT! I attributed my feet being wet to sweaty feet and not worn in yet boots. I was wrong. Just hiked today 9-1-2014 at Revelstoke Mountain 24 km, and the boots were crap. My feet were drenched from walking in the tall grass, the inside of the boots were soaked within an hour and half into the… Full review

Hanwag Alaska GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars AWESOME B1 rated boot, supportive, stiff, and great for scrambles! I have now used this boot extensively including for a light low level hike (30 odd km) and then up and down Tryfan in Wales, UK, even on the eastern traverse (tending more towards grade 2+ scrambling and rock climbing). It performed excellently!  To the stiffness 'problem' person, the likelihood is that the boot doesn't fit your foot shape at all, in which case of course they won't be comfortable. For your foot to flex 'with' the… Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 5 of 5 stars I purchased my Hermans in 1977, and have worn them since! They are the best hiking and water walking boot I have ever had. I keep them cleaned and waterproof and they will probably outlast me! I walk thru creeks and deep puddles in desert and in muddy lagoons! Full review

Limmer Light-Weight

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are sturdy and have a great fit. The break-in period is much reduced compared to Limmer Standards. I bought these boots three weeks ago to replace a pair of regular hiking boots. At the time of purchase I was sick of paying quite a bit of money for boots that needed replacing every 1 1/2 years. While on vacation in N.H. I stopped by the Limmer barn and had Ken talk me through the various models, size my feet and recommend a Limmer lightweight to me. The entire purchase took about an… Full review

Meindl Nepal Pro

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Steer clear, comfortable boot but the soles rot in about 12 months and fall apart Soles fall apart and rot after moderate use. After sales service is arrogant and rude. Much better value around and without the attitude of Stager Sports New Zealand. Terrible representative of a once good brand. Full review

Van Gorkom Men's Custom Hiking Boots

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Crotchety old man. The service is the worst. When I placed an order he sent a kit. I sent the kit back. He whined that I put too much water on the paper, then punished me by increasing the price three times what he originally quoted. The boots are no better than what I can buy at Target Full review

Filson Uplander Boots

rated 5 of 5 stars Nice high top boots. I got these used on e-bay, so paid about half price for a lightly worn pair. Fit is great, lacing works well, and I think they will be good with both light and medium socks. They don't have great arch support, but are still comfortable. I would not use these for any serious hiking as I prefer a European hiking/mountaineering boot for that.   However, knocking around in the summer and fall these keep the cheat grass out of my socks, will last for years. They are also pretty… Full review

Vasque Men's Bitterroot GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough waterproof backpacking boots. These babies have accompanied me on safaris and Kili in Africa; all over India in Asia; and throughout America, including Alaska. For the most part, they are comfortable and tough. Aside from the few noted cons, they are practically perfect mountaineering boots that are worth the money. For the most part, the Bitterroot GTX is a comfortable way to get your trail miles in while keeping your feet warm and dry. Try them on before you buy or buy from a retailer that… Full review
