Bitterroot GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough waterproof backpacking boots. These babies have accompanied me on safaris and Kili in Africa; all over India in Asia; and throughout America, including Alaska. For the most part, they are comfortable and tough. Aside from the few noted cons, they are practically perfect mountaineering boots that are worth the money. For the most part, the Bitterroot GTX is a comfortable way to get your trail miles in while keeping your feet warm and dry. Try them on before you buy or buy from a retailer that… Full review

Vasque ShapeShifter Ultra

rated 2 of 5 stars The Vasque Shapeshifter is a heavily padded running shoe that attempts to buck the trend of minimalist footwear. It comes up unsuccessful however, mostly due to a sloppy high volume, wide fit coupled with the choice to use the BOA lacing system. The positives were the surprising responsiveness and the traction on a variety of surfaces. They are also reasonably lightweight for a shoe with this much padding. They are best for someone with wide feet looking for a heavily padded cushioned ride. In my… Full review

Breeze GTX XCR

rated 4 of 5 stars Great for short hikes in all weather and terrain. Long lasting...have had mine for well over eight years! These were the first hiking boots I have ever bought. They were on sale at REI for $100, and at that price figured I couldn't go wrong. It has been almost 8+ years now and I still use them for my hikes. I started hiking straight out of the box with no need for breaking them in. I have large toe box and high arches, so it is hard to find good boots that fit. Through the years, I have been pleasantly… Full review

Breeze Low GTX XCR

rated 2 of 5 stars Did they change the shape of the Breeze?? Used to be wonderful...now painful. I had the old Vasque Breeze GTX low hikers for years and adored them! But something has changed about this boot. The toe box seems to be narrower than it used to be, and I almost immediately developed blisters on my pinky toes on both feet, plus had hot spots developing on my medial big toes. This wasn't after a long backpacking adventure...just a little 6 kilometre outing! The fit through the heel was fine, but my toes,… Full review

Snowblime UltraDry

rated 5 of 5 stars I usually buy Merell products. Bought these because they were on sale. Do not regret it for a second. Excellent fit and feel...really robust. I have only had them for a while, so I can't say much about their durability, which seems like it will be exemplary, thus far. All I can say is that they have been on some pretty crazy trails with me, so far, keeping me upright, comfortable, and alive all the way through. Recommend them very highly, do I! Full review
