Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

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

Alico Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are someone who needs his feet time to adjust...then go buy your North Face or some other Chinese made crap and move along. This boot company makes an old fashioned, truly bomb proof pair of footwear. From the hand-stitched soles to the absolute top quality leather, you cannot go wrong with these boots if you actually give them a shot! I live in the Northeast Kingdom part of Vermont. There is no place more trying (besides the White Mountains in New Hampshire) on a pair of new boots. If anyone… Full review

Vasque Men's Sundowner GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Great leather, but the sole is pure garbage. I had a pair from 1999 until 2008. They were the best boots I ever owned, but (like all boots) eventually just wore out. I wear them every day, in every condition. I replaced my '99 models with the new model. They looked identical, but the new ones broke in MUCH faster (about two weeks instead of a month). At about the year mark the sole separated from the leather. I assumed this was due to how I treated them, but was upset as $200 boots should last longer… Full review

Lowa Men's Tibet GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Best all leather boots I've ever owned! Due to a crush injury to my right lower leg I have an extremely hard time finding boots/shoes that help with the pain from crushed nerves. That being said! I found this pair of boots at a resale shop new in the box and unworn, for $25! They fit perfectly! The owner had received them as a gift and never tried them on.  I started wearing them everyday to my hunting lease, rain or shine. I've never had a pair of boots that compare! I mean, I've worn Rockys exclusively… Full review
