Recent Trail Shoe Reviews

Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator

rated 5 of 5 stars Very comfortable shoes. Have put over 1,200 miles of trail hiking in them and not one blister. Blisters were the downfall of me. They dry very fast also. Will stick with them when I do the JMT and then the PCT. Full review

Oboz Women's Sawtooth Low BDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Oboz Sawtooth hiking boot is comfortable, has a roomy toe box and stable platform, and is waterproof. For hiking in winter conditions, as well as damp environments in spring and summer, this boot delivers excellent performance. Because waterproof boots are, by design, less breathable than a non-waterproof boot, extra attention should be paid to the feet to avoid blisters. The Oboz Sawtooth hiking boot is a beefy hiking boot in a compact package. I’ve been testing the boots all winter and there… Full review

Merrell Men's Moab Gore-Tex XCR

rated 2 of 5 stars Comfy and dry but ZERO traction on wet surfaces. I have now had the Merrell Moab Gore-tex shoes for over two months and the toe box is too narrow for my left "duck" foot even though I bought a pair that is 1.5 sizes too large. The worst problem is the lack of traction on wet surfaces. I visit a training area every fortnight that consists of 900+ irregular steps and several long pathways through a forest. With the recent poor weather, I tried the Merrell shoes to keep my feet dry—what a huge mistake—I… Full review

Vasque Men's Breeze 2.0 Low GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars The Vasque Breeze 2.0 GTX is a very comfortable sport shoe best suited for hiking and lightweight backpacking. This is 4-star comfort with 2.5-star durability, but it fits the niche I need: a low-top hybrid boot/shoe that accepts my custom orthotics and wears comfortably out of the box. I've been using these since mid-2015 and just bought the third pair.                                                    [click picture to enlarge] About the shoe:… Full review

Columbia Men's Trail Meister

rated 2 of 5 stars Not a comfortable shoe overall. It's narrow and build quality is lacking. I thought I was getting a quality pair (for its name). I was wrong. Full review

Merrell Moab Rover

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A reasonable shoe with some disappointing aspects. Fit I have been wearing these most days for the last 18 months and they are now near the end of their useful life. Fit was OK when new and they are comfortable for everyday walking, though I prefer a boot for hiking. Upper after 18 months wear. Sole after 18 months wear. Appearance I bought them because I liked the leather appearance, but I found it quickly scuffed and discoloured so they looked old and worn after only a few months.  Close up of… Full review

Salomon Men's X Ultra Prime CS WP

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable, well built, good looking, hiking shoes. I bought these shoes mainly as everyday shoes, but I did want to have the option of fast-hiking lightweight shoes I can take to the outdoors. As I yet didn't have the chance to test them on a tough trek, I can't express my opinion on that kind of use. But as an everyday shoes they are perfect, very comfortable, not too stiff, but not as flexible as running shoes, giving them, in my opinion, the perfect balance between flex and support. I… Full review

Merrell Men's Capra Sport Gore-Tex

rated 4 of 5 stars A relatively light hiking shoe with some scrambling ability and waterproof lining. Has potential, but is also not that comfortable and does not seem that durable. Had these for just a few weeks. They protect the foot quite well on rocky trails. They are not too heavy (about 380 gram size 41) and have some flex to them. They are shaped like an approach shoe. Sole quite hard, mild arch support, cramped toe box, maybe because they tried for the climbing shoe style. I don't think they will last long… Full review

Oboz Men's Bridger Low BDry

rated 5 of 5 stars The soft upper and comfortable insole required virtually no break-in period. The aggressive sole is great for light snow and rough terrain. I purchased this shoe because I needed a local hiker because my Merrells wore out after several years of hard use. I found these at an REI Garage Sale and at 75% off, and with their initial fit feeling very good, I took a flyer on them.   What a home run!!! The soft upper and comfortable insole required virtually no break-in period. The aggressive sole is great… Full review
