Moab Mid Waterproof

rated 3 of 5 stars Good, light hiker for day hikes or "light" backpacking. But not enough support for my Achilles. I wear 11 1/2 and these were a fairly good fit. I am used to wearing leather hikers with two pairs of socks, but found that two pairs of socks with these was too much. Through trial and error I have found that my padded running socks are just right. Have used these for many day or few hour hikes and they have been comfortable. Would like to try them on a backpacking trip with maybe 25 to 30 pounds max… Full review

Moab Ventilator Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars A good boot suitable for spring, summer, and autumn wearing in the hills and coastal paths. Comfortable straight from the box and are light on, although they have a sturdy but flexible sole. I normally wear leather boots, but find because my feet are a little wide I can't get anything comfortable for me. I have tried many boots ranging from the very expensive to really cheap and struggle to find a good fit. The most comfortable ones I have found are fairly cheap Regatta boots. A friend had asked… Full review

All Out Blaze Aero Sport

rated 3 of 5 stars I wanted to love these hiking shoes, but they just didn't win me over after multiple backcountry hiking trips. They did not hold up in the arch area for comfort on long backpacking trips. Merrell All Out Blaze Aero hiking shoes Good traction on soles Extra rubber protection in the toe box I bought these shoes at REI during a sale. I tried them on and was super impressed with how comfortable they felt. I never would have guessed that these were about to be one of the worst shoes for backpacking. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars After 5 years my second pair of these shoes finally wore out (the soles). They were fantastic, good arch support and excellent grip, ideal for summer hiking on gravel rough trails where ankle support is not required. Have walked 1,000s of miles in them. Excellent for summer hiking where you are on rough tracks but don't need ankle support. After about 5 years my second pair of these shoes finally wore out. What is replacing them? Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Don't let the price put you off. Worth every penny. I have had two pairs over the past 20+ years, which I wear daily (love the ankle support). While the initial investment is rather steep, amortized over 10+ years, $40 per year is about what I would pay for everyday shoes anyway. Seal the sole/shoe interface with snow seal; use Lexol leather cleaner and conditioner to maintain the boots. The Wilderness boot far exceeds my expectations. I will buy yet another pair this year.
