Recent Trail Shoe Reviews

Oboz Teewinot Low

rated 5 of 5 stars Oboz introduces a very capable hybrid that is part low trail shoe and part approach shoe. It is somewhat heavier and less cushioned than most trail running shoes—so walk, don’t run. It is particularly well-ventilated for an full leather shoe, and the sticky rubber sole has outstanding grip yet ably sheds mud and muck. Durability should be great. Overall, a near-outstanding shoe: a close-fitting shoe that is all-day comfortable for walking and stellar for rock scrambling. Basic Information Out… Full review

Merrell Men's Continuum

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent hiking shoes. Like some of the other reviewers, I do feel they let in sand and dirt, but they also let my feet breathe. I almost exclusively wore these shoes for the past year. I hike all types of terrain as I live in Colorado, but the soles have held up well to the 40+ miles a week I beat them up. Some of the rubber on the front cracked some, but I'm not hung up on it. I've washed these shoes in my washer and they plopped out looking almost brand new. No problems with the looping system… Full review

Merrell Men's Reflex

rated 4 of 5 stars Great waterproof hiker. Good sole, fast break-in, very comfortable. I purchased a pair of these Merrells for general hiking. It is my second pair of shoes from Merrell and although I do enjoy my original pair of shoes, these are far superior. I thought a Vibram sole was the way to go, but Merrell has done a stand-up job at making one that rivals that of Vibram. I find the waterproofing to be great as long as one doesn't decide to take these boots swimming. My only true complaint is that the soles… Full review

Meindl Ascona Identity

rated 5 of 5 stars Wonderfully comfortable leather shoe. This is a beautifully strong leather shoe, on trail, dog walking, casual wear. It is with a leather lining that forms to your foot over time. The leather is beautiful, with natural markings, and the construction second to none. Typical of Meindl's "Made In Germany" quality, this is the kind of shoe to wear for hurting feet. It is well made, and although comfortable out of the box, will take a bit to break in and soften and mold. I use it for light trail, dog… Full review

Ozark Trail Shoe

rated 1 of 5 stars This has to be the worst pair of shoes I ever purchased. I had them for about two months and had to glue the soles several times. I feel Walmart should replace them with a shoe similar to them. I wish I could find a phone number or email address for them to lodge a complaint with. I will never buy anything like these again. Worst pair of shoes I ever purchased. Full review

The North Face Men's Hedgehog GTX XCR

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Note, this is a prior version of the shoe, used pretty hard for a few years. Good support, use of running shoe technology, and foot protection in a trail runner. Gore-tex has been more reliable than in other trail runners for me. The aggressive tread is very good. This version would have benefitted from more lateral support, a better insole, and better laces. I rotate between relatively heavy hiking boots and trail runners, depending on my needs. Trail runners have a much shorter usable life than… Full review

Columbia North Plains Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Made in Oregon for Oregon-like weather. As a son of Oregon, I know a little. Something about living an outdoor life even when the weather gets grim. I also dress for the outdoors even when I'm going to and from the office and for lunchtime hikes. These shoes are perfect! I found them in the Walnut Creek Sports Basement, my favorite toy store. The shoe runs true to size, has a nice size toe box and fantastic grip in all conditions. JW says check it out! Full review

John Calden Boots Mountain Shoe

rated 5 of 5 stars I have a pair of mountain boots from John Calden. I have not had a blister since the day I got them, and they've seen heavy use both hiking, backpacking, and off-trail. If you're looking for a trail shoe, these are not the ticket.  But if you do long hikes, anything off-trail, or rough terrain, these will stand by you and function perfectly.  I love them.

Patagonia Women's Drifter A/C

rated 5 of 5 stars Rugged lightweight shoe with gripping sole. Conditions: I have had this shoe for the past three years. I have hiked some rugged and muddy/wet parts of the Long Trail with 25-30 lbs on my back. This shoe is light but gives good support and is very comfortable for those of us with wider feet and narrow heels. I put the copper colored Superfeet footbed in mine and that has worked very well. Features: What I like most is that when I have inadvertently or unavoidably stepped in water or mud, the socks… Full review
