rated 5 of 5 stars Both good protection and comfortable to walk/run in. Makes the waiking so effortless and easy. I love these shoes. I have been using these shoes for 13 years. I feel that I'm walking effortlessly because of the sole and the shape of the shoe. The shoes are good for walking in light mountain terrain, in the forest, and on the road.  Full review

Rambler GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars A very capable on-and-off-trail boot for the price. Are these the mythical one-pair-of-boots-for-just-about-everything solution? Maybe. Yeah, probably. Well, yes—definitely—if they fit your feet. Just hope they fit your feet. Best For: Backpackers of many, many kinds...but their ideal match often goes off-trail, traverses alpine areas, and regularly carries 40 lbs. If your trail crew leader doesn’t spec all leather boots these should be on your radar. If the Job-Hazards Analysis doesn’t… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars This backpacking boot does a fantastic job at keeping your ankles safe and your hiking speed up!

They provide enough room to wiggle the toes, but plenty of squeeze to keep your foot stationary and secure.  I have spent several backpacking trips in these boots, hiking over 100 miles in them since the summer started.

Tower GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Garmont leather boots (and the Zion, the full leather one is the best) are top notch. They last about five times more than other brands, such as Marmot, for heavy backpacking between 1,500 and 5,000m, for five years, five times per year. The lining will give in, but after years of abuse—an easy fix to a local clobber who replaced the lining around the heel with some leather for $25. I prefer all leather boots such as the Zion and with a bit of wax in between hikes they are indestructible. Great… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Best approach shoe I've ever used. I wore these on a trekking trip around the world: desert, swamp, forest, beach and mountains. They were once wet for six days straight after walking in rivers. I took them instead of heavy ankle-support boots and they were perfect the whole trip. Great traction on rock. Only one flaw – the laces kept coming undone so I cut them short. I've just bought a new pair for the next adventure. Full review
