Recent Backpacking Boot Reviews

U.S. Military Mickey Mouse Boot

rated 5 of 5 stars If your feet get cold on winter outings, or your feet sweat and then freeze, these are the boots for you. They are a little heavy, but I have also hiked in them. Well worth the added weight, the insulation is sandwiched between two layers of rubber. The boot can literally fill with water and your feet will stay warm. It's like a dry suit for your feet. The sizes seem to run a little large. I wear a 11.5 to 12 shoe, but a size 10 Mickey Mouse boot. I have both the black and white versions, the white… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought the boots about three years ago, walked 50 km on established bushwalking track, cleaned and stored them in a dry cupboard inside a suitcase for about two years, used them for 1 hour this weekend and both soles detached from the boot. I purchased a pair of Asolo TPS 520 GV around the end of 2015 and probably only walked about 50 km on established bush tracks. I then had a 2 1/2 year period where I was unable to use them so I cleaned them and stored them in a dry cupboard inside my house. I… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 535 V

rated 1 of 5 stars Not durable at all. These boots failed me after four uses. The soles separated from the rest of the boot. Asolo would not honor their own manufacturer's failure. DO not buy these boots or any other products from Asolo.  Full review

AKU Tengu Lite GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It's impressive what you get when science meets exceptional, quality materials. A great trekking boot fit for an adrenaline junkie. I was sent the Tengu for testing from AKU.  When I first put the boot on, it literally slurped my foot into it; it makes an audible sound. The boot has what is called a Goretex sock. It's somewhat like a neoprenish sock that's built right into the boot. It is quite comfortable and form fitting.  I wore the boots to work each day for a week thinking that I'd have to… Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredibly short break-in time, extremely comfortable, and durable boot. These are the best and longest lasting boots I've ever owned. I use these boots as both hikers and my daily work boots. My last pair lasted 2.5 years of everyday use both on the trail and in a chemistry lab. I've thrown everything at these boots from rocks, trees, and chainsaws; to industrial solvents like acetonitrile and methanol. The only reason I needed a new pair was because a solvent spill finally ate a hole in the Goretex… Full review

Asolo Men's Power Matic 200 GV

rated 4 of 5 stars Full leather boot maintains waterproof with minimal maintenance, even after two years and over 100 miles of use. Rollerguide lacing supports even lacing pressure and the firm sole is great for heavy loads and rough terrain. I purchased these boots two years ago after retiring another set of Asolo boots. I tried every boot I could find, light, heavy, soft, stiff etc. I liked these the best. Yes, boots are particular to each person's feet, but there are a few things on this boot that I really enjoy. … Full review

Limmer Stock Boots

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought boots off shelf. Horrible. Big waste of money, low tech and ugly. If you can get acclimated to a daily beating these boots are perfect. Don’t do it. Full review

Asolo Men's TPS 520 GV

rated 2 of 5 stars A heavy boot, but among the most comfortable and most water resistant I have ever worn, but due to the catastrophic failure of the sole material these can be a dangerous boot for tough hikes As a mature tramper/bushwalker from New Zealand a lot of our tramping is in wet and muddy conditions. When I first tried on the Asolos I thought, at last, a boot that feels as though it was made for me. Over the first few years of occasional tramping they felt great, till today's tramp, an easy, four-hour lowland… Full review

Asolo Men's AFX 520 GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These were great boots but I also had the sole disintegrate. I paid over $450 and they are useless—don't buy them These were great shoes but like other reviewers I hadn't used them for over 12 months. I then went to put them in bag to go on a hike and found the material between the sole and the upper had turned to powder and separated—now useless and can't be fixed. When you pay that sort of money you expect them to last. Full review
