I am a frequent trekker so I am always in need of trekking boots. Can someone provide me some more suggestions here??

This is going to sound snarky but it isn't meant to be -- the best footwear is the one that fits you well. There are lots of good brands that can mean quality construction, specialized materials, etc, but they are all built on different "lasts" (the mold of a foot a given shoe is formed around), and if it doesn't fit you well then nothing else matters.

What kind of conditions are you looking to be hiking in, and what kind of load will you be carrying? For summer with a light pack I prefer trail runners rather than boots, and I prefer non-Gortex so if they get wet they also can dry out easily.
