Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

Meindl Island Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Had mine nine years, re-soled once, uppers still in excellent condition. Never given me blisters, never leaked, always comfortable. Can't recommend these boots highly enough—no breaking-in period for my pair, always comfortable, never chaffed, rubbed or leaked, offer excellent ankle supper without being inflexible. The uppers have taken nearly 10 years of abuse and are still in superb condition (which warrants the re-soling cost) so including re-soling they've cost me around £30/year and I basically… Full review

Zamberlan Women's 996 Vioz GT

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely durable and reliable boot. Have worn for three years and have had few problems. I would definitely recommend this boot. I've used it tree planting in thick brush and landscaping and they've lasted extremely well. They've been through mud, puddles, and many overnight hikes and my feet have stayed dry and completely comfortable. The boot fits perfectly and has not rubbed in any places. It did take a bit of getting used to and wearing in though. They grip incredibly well. I've climbed rocky… Full review

Meindl Borneo Pro MFS

rated 5 of 5 stars Great allrounder boot that will last you a long time! Now on my second pair, which I have been using extensively from the treacherous granite mountains of South Korea, to the jungle of Borneo (no pun intended...), to the wet pastures of Norfolk. This boot never let me down and sits tightly around the ankle, perfect when carrying a heavy rucksack and across uneven surfaces. Smart enough for town as well when polished up. Would I consider buying a third pair? Simple answer: Yes! Full review

Meindl Perfekt

rated 5 of 5 stars An excellent, solid boot. I used to wear the old Asolo Yukons and wanted something a little more like them—a bit lighter, with the break-in more along the width for overhang—but could not find anything suitable. The Meindls are heavier, more thickly padded, and wider-cut—so they are a little 'clunkier' feeling. BUT the Meindl Perfekt is an unquestionably well-made boot. Meindl Perfekts deserve, and require, a slow and gentle break-in with good care. I am a fan of Obenauf's, which is working… Full review

Vasque Montana

rated 5 of 5 stars I purchased a pair of Vasque Montana boots in 1972 and had them for over 20 years. In fact when I moved to Texas in 2003 I still had them. I purchased a pair of Vasque Montana boots in 1972 and had them for over 20 years. In fact when I moved to Texas in 2003 I still had them. If comfort is was your thing, these boots molded the die and fit like a glove and never caused me any pain. I called them my shit kickers because I used them in every condition and walked most of California with them, eight… Full review

Filson Uplander Boots

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome all purpose boot that will outlast me. I have had these boots for over a year now so I feel pretty comfortable reviewing them in depth. I love these boots. I have a fair number of boots and these really are the best ones I own. These were my work boots when I was working in South Asia, they were my hiking boots when I trekked the Annapurna Circuit, they are my hunting boots, and they are my winter boots.  So the fit, I was excited about these because they offered them in EE. I usually have… Full review

Asolo Men's Power Matic 200 GV

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I loved these boots. They were everything I was looking for in a full leather option for rough ground. In the end both the boot and the company let me down badly. I paid top dollar for these boots that I expected to be with me for a long time. The previous pair of good mountain boots I had lasted for 12 years. I ordered the boots from the internet and they fitted well which pleased me as I am a 1/2 size and normally need to be tried before I would part with this sort of money. Everything went well… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Dangerously poor durability leading to multi-mile barefoot hike over rugged lava. Not suitable for guide work or forestry, unless you carry a spare pair! This is the second pair of Asolo 520's I have purchased from REI. The first pair performed well and outlasted any other boot I have used in my professional guide/forester occupation. This second pair of Asolos has suffered a complete delamination of the right boot after seven months of similar use. The failure occurred mid-hike and resulted in… Full review

Asolo Power Matic 100 GV

rated 4 of 5 stars Asolo is quality gear. These boots are great for heavy loads and for rocky ground. If you're looking for a durable boot with mountaineering capabilities, these might be a good option. Asolo makes great boots. I know several guys who've taken this brand as their brand of choice for a tour of duty over in the Middle East, more than once. That says a lot about quality and durability. So I bought these Power Matics based on features and design. They are equipped with roller lace guides, so they tighten… Full review
