rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have owned my boots now for almost four years, have hiked much of western Maryland, with these boots using them four times a week, and they have travelled with me to Colombia and been used extensively here over various terrain and are still going strong. These boots are great. I will change the laces and add an innersole and probably get another four years out of them. Going with me to the Mexico border region next. The fit was great for me, 10.5 fit like a 10.5. Were a little stiff to start,… Full review

Moab Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid shoe great support. Walking through wet grass and waterproofing held up. You will give up breathability to get waterproof, but if that is what you are looking for you won't go wrong with the Moab. I was breaking them in during a house move and wore them all day. Very comfortable and saved my feet and legs from strain in a way only good boots can. They do run about 1/2 size small, so make sure to try them on. Full review

Barefoot Trail Glove

rated 3 of 5 stars A very expensive water shoe that takes a long time to dry. Covers your bare feet enough to protect from the elements.

But the fit, minimal sole material and support is not for the weak of foot. I would… Full review

Barefoot Pace Glove

rated 4 of 5 stars Great minimal shoe for running and walking. Nice fit, does not constrict my foot in any way. Zero drop, pretty good ground feel, also great for slippery surfaces and off road. Due to the material my toes and heel get sweaty in this shoes. Overall a nice running shoe for the months that running sandals are just too cool or when I want more protection for my toes / upper foot. Great minimal shoe for running and walking. Nice fit with wide toe box, does not constrict my foot in any way. No break-in… Full review

Proterra Sport

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent lightweight, minimalist styled hiking shoe from Merrell. The combination of great design, high quality materials, and sound construction have resulted in a very comfortable and surprisingly durable outdoor shoe. A great option for anyone wanting to go faster and lighter over demanding terrain, but equally feasible for someone simply looking for an attractive, but understated outdoors shoe for city use with the occasional forays into the trail. Details from the manufacturer (I have highlighted… Full review
