Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

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

Meindl Makalu

rated 4 of 5 stars Fit is very good, especially at the heel. And the narrower outer heel width is what is needed off-trail for foot stability when traversing steep inclines. Toe construction with sole is a bit long, extending too far ahead of toes so harder to climb when only forefoot gets a grip. This is my one complaint. Lacing system excellent. Allows easy adjustment for up and down gradients. When first bought the stiffness gave me some pain in the toe joints breaking in, but after the Milford Track walk… Full review

Asolo Men's Khumbu

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent boot all-around. Excellent traction in all terrain, completely waterproof. Comfortable and cool. Very good impact resistance, very well-made boot for backpacking, hiking and at-home wear. This is a serious boot suitable for all outdoor enthusiasts. The fit is excellent, both with the original insole and with after-market insoles. The narrow heel provides a stable platform for foot and ankle support, and prevents unpredictable movement and loss of stability of the foot. The lacing system… Full review

L.L.Bean Men's Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Fabric/Leather

rated 3 of 5 stars Shank not stiff enough; Toe scuffed badly after one hike; Upper lace hooks cut my finger. This is a review of the Fabric/Leather Cresta. I weigh 225 pounds. With a 40-pound pack the boot shanks flexed, transmitting unwanted surface contour sensations under my feet on/off the John Muir Trail in California. Been using Bean products there since the Reagan years. No fit problems using a Birkenstock 3/4 length insert. However cushioning was an issue arising in bruised and blistered underside of one big… Full review
