Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

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

Scarpa Men's Mustang GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Had these boots for five years of constant wear and they are the best boots I have ever owned. Very comfortable straight out the box and took about 2x 5-8km to nicely break in. They are lighter than the average boot but also have been very rigid and supportive on longer hikes I have done. I've done about 8 hikes in these guys now and they still remain waterproof. I also took them backpacking for 6 months and they held up beautifully. Never had a problem with blisters, I always wear good socks when… Full review

Alico Summit

rated 5 of 5 stars In my opinion, the Alico Summit is the best all leather, general purpose, hiking boot you can buy under $400. Twenty years ago these boots had dozens of competitors. Now it's down to the Danner Mountain Lights, the Merrell Wilderness, and the non-custom Limmers for sub $400 all leather quality. I haven't worn the competitors, but I'm sure they're comparable. Each has pluses and minuses. Only the Limmer is still leather lined. All have a Norwegian welt or similar (Danner).  I didn't find these boots… Full review

Chaco Men's Beckwith

rated 1 of 5 stars Good looking torture device. Much like several other users have found, these don't fit my feet at all. I bought these 12 years ago and have less than 150 miles on them. I tried to break them in but the pain was too much to handle. Now to start off I walk 5 miles a day at a minimum, and often with a 20+lb pack. I have worn many different boots over the years and these are the worst. Even the cheap Hi-Tecs I bought were more comfortable.  I can typically hike 15 miles a day with a full pack and no… Full review

Herman Survivor Big Timber

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Used to love the Big Timber boots, but they changed the soles now they are uncomfortable there is like no arch anymore. Bring back the old soles and they'd be a five star. Used to be the most comfortable work boot I've found. But they changed the soles and now they are very uncomfortable. Full review

Hanwag Alaska GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Garbage boots. I wore these at most twenty times and the toe box collapsed. Hanwag completely ignored me and the retailer told me to see a shoe repair. They do not stand by their product and when I left a review on Hanwag.ca they deleted it. As I wrote above, these boots are garbage. I bought a pair new, worn at maximum 20 times. I've lived in cheaper boots for the past 15 years, but since changing duties I no longer wear boots every shift. Thus, how I know how many times I wore these boots. The… Full review
