Salomon Pro Trek 7
Had my Salomons for a few years, but only done about 20 days of hiking in them and the soles came apart from the upper. I'll never buy another pair of Salomons again.
Use: rough trails, rocky bushwacks, heavy pack
Break-in Period: zero
Price Paid: 130$
The best boots I've ever owned. Breaking time was zero and they lasted me through 2 tree-planting seasons. For the non-planters out there, that's twice as much as a normal "heavy" backpacking boot. Very tough and comfy, a perfect balance of strength and weight.
Materials: Nu-buck uppers
Use: 4 Season
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: £109
In the U.K. these boots are classed as "4 Season" i.e. they can take a crampon for ice-walking up in the mountains. I have an older pair which have day-glo attachment points for crampons--really cool! Without a doubt, they are the best boots I have ever used. Fantastic.
