Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Complete junk. Both soles split all the way through in less than three months. A total waste of money. Walmart has trashed this once respected brand. A complete waste of money. Less than three months both soles split all the way through. They were only worn in snow, and have little to no wear on them. Spend your money elsewhere, and avoid these like the plague. Full review

Vasque Men's Wasatch GTX

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bought these boots after extensive research. Apparently Vasque has dropped the ball regarding Chinese Quality Control of products. Had catastrophic sole failure at ball of foot on both boots after several years of day hikes. Not impressed due to fact that other Vasque products over the years have been superior products. The boots fitted well and provided great ankle support over moderate terrain. The break-in period was minimal and there were no blisters. However, I found that gaiters were necessary… Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 1 of 5 stars Alone in the woods with Herman Survivor? You will not survive! Less than a year in a warehouse and the rubber bottom split and let water in. The fit is good, the comfort is also OK. Support also fine, temp .... the boot is OK except for 2 key. The boot I had was the "Coleman" The metal clasps for the laces snapped off on the top left, and then middle right... and then even the lowest, large appearently heavy duty clasp -- that failed too, inside of 6 months. The laces also were sub par, failing… Full review

Asolo Men's Power Matic 400 GV

rated 2 of 5 stars Rigid backpacking boots with excellent support and cushion for heavy weights carries. But with a big flaw, the Vibram soles have disassembled after less than a year, and it's impossible to glue them back. I love them for their toughness and structure. Still I would not recommend them for anyone. Four years ago, while preparing for a six months backpacking trip to New-Zealand and Nepal, I came across this boots. I hesitated first because of their high price tag and heavy weight, but the firm's reputation… Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased mine in 1967 in Michigan for deer hunting, still wearing them today 2014. I'm 71 and plan on handling them down to someone or maybe I'll be buried in them. Full review

The North Face Men's Dhaulagiri GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the best boots I have ever owned and I'm 38. I did not climb Mount Everest — I trounced through concrete jungles, huge puddles, mud, snow, gravel and grass. I have owned these boots for three years and they are the most comfortable shoes I own. They still look new and they are ultra durable. That's why they discontinued them — they are indestructible! Impossible to find. If you can find them, buy them. Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 1 of 5 stars I couldn't believe it, both soles fell off (no kidding) these hunting boots at the same time. They were a gift and I have worn the boots approx. ten times hunting. It's the week before opening day and I am on the scramble for another pair. Good thing I read these reviews or I might have bought another pair. Not this time. Boots fell apart after ten times wearing. Soles separated from the boot. Full review

Van Gorkom Men's Custom Hiking Boots

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Terrible fit. So many better choices out there than this. I played the fool and bought these three years ago. Worst boots I have ever owned. Full review

Lowa Men's Banff Pro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My Banffs wore through the sole. For $85, you can send them to Germany and they will refurbish them for you--new sole, new midsole, new rand, patch, new laces. Contact lowaboots.com first. They will send you a return authorization. For $85, you can be without your beloved Banffs for 2 months. They will come back looking new. I have owned my Banff Pros for four years, and in that time have hiked across Grand Canyon 12 times. Heavy loads, tough terrain, water crossings, nothing bothers them. Finally… Full review
