Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

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 twenty 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. Full review

Vasque Men's Sundowner GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Our official boot since the 1990s. The originals were as close to indestructible as a boot can get. The Chinese model isn't quite as good, but still beats anything else out there. As guides of backpacking trips and editors of OutpostUSA adventure travel magazine, we're on the trails a lot. We all wear Sundowners all the time year round. Yes, we religiously treat and polish them after each trip and sometimes even in mid trip. We buy a new pair, use them as dress boots in town for a year, then move… Full review

Meindl Super Perfekt

rated 5 of 5 stars Heavy duty and handsome boots built to take a beating. Best boots I've ever worn. Best footwear purchase I've ever made. I settled on a pair of the Meindl Super Perfekts after deciding I needed a pair of footwear to last me forever or as close to that as possible. So I set off learning about the old school leather mountain boots that hipsters usually wear to walk to Starbucks every morning. Of course I hope there aren't any hipsters using these boots for that as that would be a shame and a waste… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 1 of 5 stars These boots put my life in danger in the backcountry in winter. I guess these boots are hit or miss—mine missed. I see the 5-star ratings and I wonder how many of you have had the midsole delaminate and the tread sole come off. Not good. I think they should stop production and confirm that their adhesive and midsole material is not defective. I paid top dollar and got Walmart performance. Their boots were backpack specific, for trail only, and had a soft life. Never used for work or exposed to… Full review

Meindl Softline TOP GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These are the most comfortable pair of boots (or any other shoes) I have ever worn. The Vibram sole is superb, and although they are full leather boots they are relatively light and breathable. They could easily receive 5 stars, the only reason they didn't is because of one problem that should have been fixed by the manufacturer under warranty. I’ve used these boots for three long distance hikes during a 6-month period, with an average pack weight of 36 pounds. The trails I’ve walked through… Full review

Pivetta P-5

rated 5 of 5 stars I wore a pair of Pivettas in 1973 while hiking 1400+ miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. They were the best boots I ever owned! Full review

John Calden Boots Men's Mountain Hiking Boot

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are great for on-trail or off-trail hiking. I hike in the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado in and around Durango and Silverton. I have never found a satisfactory pair of store bought boots. The most common problems have been heel slippage and black/blue toes. A friend of mine suggested that I contact John Calden. He  works out of Estes Park, Colorado, which is a short drive from Denver. I made an appointment with John at his workshop. He took a very careful measurement of each… Full review
