Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

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

Garmont T8 NFS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This backpacking boot does a fantastic job at keeping your ankles safe and your hiking speed up! I bought them new at a military surplus store for 60 dollars, and I'm definitely not disappointed. I would like to vouch strongly for their durable construction and sturdy foot support. They provide enough room to wiggle the toes, but plenty of squeeze to keep your foot stationary and secure.  I have spent several backpacking trips in these boots, hiking over 100 miles in them since the summer started.

Scarpa Attack

rated 5 of 5 stars Best boots I've had. Used them all year round climbing in Scotland. Been used for over 15 years. Will be hard to find a good replacement. Full review

Altama Desert Mil Spec Combat Boot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sleek, flexible, lightweight heat-venting design beats most other hot weather boots out of the market. Oldie but a goodie. I was fortunate enough to snag a pair of unscuffed, odorless vintage Altama Hot Weather Jungle Boots today, second-hand for about $12 US. These babies are still selling secondhand for upwards of 40 dollars on the Internet. Happily, I intend to break them in if possible, as they cost barely more than some drop on a single pack of cigarettes. A good pair of boots can last for… Full review

Danner Mountain Assault

rated 5 of 5 stars Great boots, sturdy support, water tight! Take a beating and still look good! I have had these boots for about four years. They have held up very well under rough use. They compare to some of the Lowa boots I have (Tibet, Hunter Evo, Baffin Pro, etc). The toe box seemed low volume in a 14EE but broke in nicely with a little use. Love them for hiking, hunting, and woods play in cool or wet weather. Awesome with a big pack, very sturdy. With good socks good to freezing or below if active. Would buy… Full review

Zamberlan Men's 996 Vioz GT

rated 5 of 5 stars Best boots I've ever owned. These boots are comfortable, strong, and definitely waterproof. Great for hiking and backpacking. The first time you wear these boots it's like learning to walk again. The soles are shaped differently in a way that rolls your foot and uses your ankle less. After wearing them a few times you don't even notice it anymore. This makes them great for people with ankle problems (my dad has a bad ankle from a motorbike accident and he has a pair and it's the only way he can… Full review

Meindl Men's Borneo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bought my second pair after 10 years intense use. Full leather, no sweaty feet, but 100% water resistant. Strong, comfortable, versatile, all-year boot. Before buying check the boots in detail because they might have some flaws. I had to change several until I had the perfect set (I am not an easy person). After 10 years wearing my old Borneos I had to buy new ones. The inner lining was too broken down to be still comfortable. You do not need to wear them in. They are light, water-resistant, and… Full review

Zamberlan 1006 Vioz Plus GT RR

rated 5 of 5 stars Exceptional workmanship, bulletproof construction, quality leather, a nice wide fit that allows any sock combination you want and room for Superfeet insoles. These are the Mercedes of hiking boots. Engineered and built to perform under tough circumstances. The boots now have about 150 miles or so on them. Half of that has been on snow covered trails. They really shine in winter. Excellent warmth and traction. You feel like you've got substantial protection and support around your feet and ankles. … Full review
