Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

Lowa Men's Tibet Pro GTX

rated 2 of 5 stars Returned the boots after two days. I was looking for a new pair of boots, preferably a more robust boot than the one I’ve been using for the last four years (Zamberlan 308 Trekker RR).  Most of my hikes are in the Northeast, in the high peaks area of the Adirondacks and in the White Mountains.  When I tried on the Tibet Pro, I tried both the narrow and regular width. I have narrow feet, but the regular width fit me perfectly, although, I have to say I couldn’t feel much difference. I use… Full review

AKU Utah Top GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Best backpacking boots I've ever had. Well, since this doesn't seem to be a popular boot company and there are no reviews on it, let me be the first. I love these boots. I researched for over six months trying to find a boot for a thru hike on the AT. I wanted to buy USA made boots and tried several pair of Danners and they just were too narrow for my feet. Although the toe box appears to be narrow, I have plenty of room, but I am using only 3/4 inserts allowing more room for my toes to wiggle around. Full review

Rugged Outback Waterproof Hikers

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Would never touch these again — total waste of money. Heel collapsed and the sole left the shoe second time out. Do not bother buying these shoes. You will be disappointed. Read the other reviews. Full review

Zamberlan Men's 996 Vioz GT

rated 4 of 5 stars Very good backpacking boot. No break-in period for me.  With a liner and good wool sock, it is like wearing slipper. Stong lacing. Nice overall grip. I use them in warm/cold condition (5°C to 12°C) and I was very comfortable and dry. Late I will add a winter review. Nice support with a 70 pounds backpack. 20 km hike and no blisters. Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought boots at Wal-mart. Started leaking after wearing a short while. Will most certainly tell all my friends to not buy Herman Survivors products. Not worth the money at all so don't waste your money. Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 4 of 5 stars I also bought these boots, and wear them almost every day. I work with a lot of firewood and am very hard on boots. Besides my Under Armour boots, these are one of the best pairs I have had in a while. Full review

Herman Men's Survivor

rated 1 of 5 stars I have owned two pair of Herman Survivor boots and with BOTH of them the glued on soles came loose from the uppers in a short time — less than 6 months. I will NEVER EVER BUY this brand again. Spend your money on something else. These look good, but are CHEAPLY made. Factory must not have any standards! Full review

Vasque Men's Zephyr GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Mine have been to 13K and above. Rocky and treacherous, wet and mud. I am small 5' 6" 145 lbs. Male. I hike fairly aggressively, passing people on the trail while toting about 35 to 40 lbs. The only gripe is they are discontinued. The interior has weld up pretty good and they are still water proof after about 400 miles of strictly off road. The rocks ate the Vibram soles in about 2 years. I wear a 9.5 USA and the Zepher fit perfect. Never got a blister or hot spot. I wear merlno wool socks all the… Full review
