Moab Ventilator Mid

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Moab Ventilator Mids are very comfortable, relatively wear resistant, provide decent foot support, and traction, and dry out quickly. These traits are somewhat offset by the quality of construction, lack of strong ankle support for a mid-height boot, average insoles (typical for many brands), limited lacing options, and potential long term durability issues. They are a decent hybrid between waterproof boots and quick-drying trail runners for those transitioning to lightweight footwear or wanting… Full review

Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

rated 1 of 5 stars was looking for a nice waterproof day hiker / weekend trip boot. Great looks, good comfort, reputable brand. However, terrible quality, and even worse customer service. Bought these from Gander Mountain for use on local hikes and some short 3-4 nighters.

Telluride Lace

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for everyday use, but not stable enough for longer hikes. Excellent quality and comfort. I was actually looking for a trail runner not for trail running but to be used professionally at work.

But I get a lot of garbage about it because I have never found such a shoe that looks like a dress shoe. Full review

Chameleon II Stretch

rated 1 of 5 stars Horrible shoes. The most worst hiking boots ever. Hard to put on and soak up wet dew like a sponge. After a 25-mile hike my feet are so blistered I can hardly walk. Wasted my $$$$ on these crappy shoes. Full review

Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

rated 5 of 5 stars Very comfortable and light for mid length boots and comes in wide widths. Fits well out of the box. Little or no break-in required. Used it to hike up to Nevada Falls in Yosemite and kept dry even on the Mist Trail.  Full review
