Recent Trail Shoe Reviews

Keen Men's Durand Low WP

rated 4 of 5 stars Low hiker meant for the trail whether smooth or rocky, flat or steep. This is more of a warranty issue with the pair that I bought. I've used the Durands on a handful of hikes and trout fishing. They performed admirably. There's generous room in the toe box, which, due to Keen's design, is very helpful in preventing toe bang when descending steep trails. My issue occurred after a couple of months of owning the shoes when stitching started to unravel on the right shoe near the toe. I sent the photo… Full review

Ahnu Ridgecrest

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a really comfortable hiking or backpacking shoe for people who don’t like hiking boots. The Ridgecrest offers increased traction and stability in a waterproof package while still remaining breathable. Ahnu has packed a lot of technology into the design of their new Ridgecrest low-rise hiking shoe. The soles are comprised of Spider Rubber, known for its stickiness and durability. They feature directional lugs for increased traction during forward movement while also helping to eliminate… Full review

Vasque Men's Juxt

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Hard to find, had to buy through REI (~$20 above list price). Wore through the inside heel areas of the right shoe after 4 months of weekend wear. I won't be buying another set. Full review

Adidas Men's Terrex Fast X GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Great traction and good foot protection for trail hiking. Adidas has improved the lacing to avoid heel slip in newer models. I normally wear a 9.5 US and had to size up to a 10 for this shoe. I have flat and narrow feet. The tongue comfort and lacing needed a fair bit of adjustment out of the box to meet a comfort level for hiking. The sole and heel cup provide support for striking uneven surfaces; however, a gnarly enough, uneven surface could twist your ankle as it is a relatively narrow shoe… Full review

Merrell Women's 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

Adidas Women's Terrex Swift R GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Feet stayed dry! Stomping through puddles and mud and snow, socks dry as a bone! I am wowed by these trail shoes in more ways than one. Adidas shoes in very bright turquoise and yellowFeet dry and surprisingly warm! I actually bought these shoes when I traded in my Merrell All out Blaze hiking shoes after 6 months. It was a day before a 4-night trip out in the Olympics. I needed a shoe, any shoe at that point because my arches were aching so badly from the Merrells. I spotted these and tried a… Full review

Oboz Men's Sawtooth Low

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent shoe. Lighter than most boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup. I've never had a blister from these. Excellent shoe. I've had them for over a year, taken them backpacking and up multiple 14ers - heavy loads and long days. Lighter than boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup.  I've never had a blister from these. No break in required.  Not the waterproof model, but this helps keep… Full review

New Balance Men's 650

rated 4 of 5 stars Having worn boots for years and feet beginning to ache, I switched to these trail shoes and aches went away. Sure my feet still feel tired after miles and miles, but the strange muscle/joint ache in my feet is a thing of the past. The weight of boots, even lightweight, is gone, and I don't believe boots offer much of the much touted ankle support anyway. I've been wearing them for years now. They get soaked I rinse them off well and dry them in the sun and put them back on. Wish I had switched to… Full review

Oboz Men's Sawtooth Low

rated 4 of 5 stars About me: 55ish year old, 5' 10” tall, overweight (190lb and all in the beer belly), upper-intermediately experienced backpacker. Been backpacking all my life since before Boy Scouts in the early 70s to present. Due to injuries and some physical issues (read: fat, old and lazy, mostly) I don't get out as much as I used to or would like to and have been transitioning from “Old Style” backpacking where I'd carry between 40 and 60 pounds (sometimes more) for a 3-7 day trip to “Lightweight”… Full review
