Keen Men's Targhee Vent Mid

All-day comfort for wide feet in a lightweight hiking boot. Still holding up after a year and half and an estimated 350 km / 250 miles of use. Best for hiking in mostly dry conditions. I picked up my Targhees on a sale table at an outdoor retailer sometime during my last couple of months in Tucson in 2018. That summer they saw some use on day hikes and a four-day hike in Colorado before I brought them home to Norway. Since I have the breathable but non-waterproof version of the boots they are not… Full review

Salomon Men's X Ultra Mid 2 GTX

Fit and wearability: Very good. i have owned three pairs of these boots. I have backpacked and hiked fairly extensively in them. Because I live in PA, my boots see a lot of diverse weather. I have worn these shoes in the Allegheny, Elk, Susquehannock, and Tioga forestlands in PA, but mostly through Moraine State Park. They have also been on hikes through Pisgah, DuPont forests along with woodlands in Tennessee. I don’t try to quantify my mileage because I simply love to hike. These are my everyday… Full review

Lowa Zephyr Desert GTX Hi

Received these boots as a birthday present in March, 2019. As of this date 8-27-19 the inside of both boots has completely come apart. Lowa customer service has a solution, "we will send you a free set of insoles". That's it...no help at all. $249 for nothing but JUNK. The boot initially were great. Very comfortable and very easy to break in. The boots were a birthday present 3/19. By mid-June the interior of the boot began falling apart. Now, 8/19 the entire insole has completely come apart. I… Full review

Adidas Men's Terrex Free Hiker

A super comfortable hiking shoe, which blurs the lines between a trail runner and a hiking boot. As the summer hiking season approached, it became clear that it was time to buy a new pair of hiking shoes. This process is always made more difficult by the multitude of foot problems I have: long toes, wide forefoot (bunions), severe over-pronater, and size 14. So I started researching what was new on the market, to get started in the process. I read a review in Backpacker magazine for the Adidas Terrex… Full review

Inov-8 Men's Roclite G 345 GTX

The Inov-8 Roclite G 345 GTX is a very high quality mid-ankle boot that offers superb traction, while still being very lightweight. Inov-8 classifies this product as a hiking and running boot that provides comfort and traction over trail protection. Graphene rubber technology takes this footwear to a new level, making it ideal for unstable and slippery terrain during moderate mileage days. Inov-8 released the Roclite G 345 GTX to meet the needs of the "fast & light" hiker or trail runner looking… Full review

Keen Men's Durand Waterproof Mid

Durable, comfortable, and lightweight. Great for wide flat feet. Another writer says they are not for serious hiking, but rather for looking like an outdoorsy person. I don't know what this writer considers real hiking, but this is what I do in  them. I never see a trail where I go cause I'm a land surveyor.  I am in swamps, hills, creeks going up, down, through thick underbrush, rocks, sand, and any other conditions you can imagine. These boots do it all. I'm on my third pair and ready for a… Full review

Meindl Burma Pro GTX

The Burma Pro GTX is a men's mid-mountain walking boot designed by Meindl. It's a long distance hiking boot capable of basic mountaineering routes in summer and winter conditions. Having described these as one of my favourite bits of kit in my Reviewer of the Month article I thought I had better do them justice with a review. Germans certainly know how to make boots  (I also owned pair of HanWag mountaineering boots and they saved a trip to the Alps). I have walked for hundreds of miles in these… Full review

Salomon Men's X Ultra Mid 3 Aero

The Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 Aero's are my "tweeners." They perfectly fill the gap between my low-top Salomon X Ultra 3 and my Salomon Quest 4D 3 GTX hiking/backpacking footwear. Featherlight, cushiony comfort, wraparound support and Gecko-like grip make these my favorite for hiking and backpacking when pack weights are 35 lbs. or less.                                             Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 Aero   I should add the disclaimer that I own a vast number of hiking shoes… Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid

Not what they used to be. Unfortunately within two or three years, three pairs of Renegade Lowa GTX (two Mids and one Lo), have had their Vibram soles detach and disintegrate long before anything else on the shoe/boot showed any signs of wear. The soles had wonderful tread left, the stitching was excellent, and the interior showed no signs of rubbing-type wear. For the relatively high price one pays for Lowas and the relatively light use over two or three years this brand is no longer worth it. Full review
