Lowa Zephyr GTX Mid

Hard wearing, very comfortable, good quality. Poor grip on hard wet surfaces. Great boots, well made, very comfy, but rubbish on wet rock (some debate that this is not their intended use but nothing advertised accordingly).  Put a Vibram sole on them and I would buy again, but do not venture into the mountains in the UK weather!! Have worn every day for general use for about 1.5 years and the sole has worn through, uppers are mint but cannot resole. Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

NO LONGER a Merrell fan. Back in 2009 I spent way more than I ever thought I would for a pair of Merrell boots for our trip to Philmont NM Scout Ranch. The performed exceptionally, turned out to be well worth the expense. Over the years I bought 6 more pairs, a couple of them being Gore-Tex. One of the pairs failed a few years back and Merrell replaced them. My newest pair of Gore-Tex Merrells began to leak so I sent them a note. Since Gore-Tex is a membrane and not a coating I assumed they would… Full review

Merrell Speed Strike Mid Waterproof boots

Comfortable boots that are durable for their weight. These are good for people who want something more substantial than trail running shoes but don't want to be weighed down or feel restricted by backpacking boots. Based on my experience so far, I recommend them for backpackers, peak baggers, and hunters. When I bought these boots I was in urgent need of some waterproof boots for work, and these were available locally and immediately. This model isn't listed on the Merrell website, and as far as… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof

These hiking boots are perfect for beginner or well-seasoned backpackers. No matter if the trail is dry, muddy, underwater, snowy, rocky, sandy, or anywhere in-between, these boots held up! I would recommend these boots for anyone looking to get into backpacking or who needs to replace their well loved hiking boots. These were my first pair of hiking boots, and I have had many since then. I bought them used from REI for $35. I was new to BPing, broke, and nervous being the only BIPOC I knew in the… Full review

Altra Lone Peak Hiker

Lightweight, comfortable, and durable shoes that are great for the weekend hiker looking to move to more modern hiking footwear I wanted an upgrade from some big box outdoor store hiking boots that I bought years ago for an upcoming trip. I was convinced I wanted a lighter hiking shoe because I didn't like the heavy feeling and the ankle rub that came with my old boots. After trying on a lot of hiking shoes, I was fortunate to have an experienced store employee ask if I was okay trying on the Altra… Full review

Lundhags Forest II

Really wanted to like these, but... I really wanted to like these boots. I loved the idea behind them, a durable, re-solable boot that combined the best part of a welly with the best parts of a leather hiking boot. A boot that theoretically could last a lifetime. However they just didn't work for me. They were incredibly hard to break in, just to get them to feel in any way comfortable and they were way, way too narrow for my wider than average feet. If you have narrow feet, these may be great for… Full review

Oboz Sawtooth II Mid

I had high hopes for these boots because they fit my narrow feet and were very comfortable in the store. Due to significant comfort issues that arose in the field, along with disappointing midsole longevity, I'm not sure I'd buy these boots again. Fit: I have narrow feet, especially in the heels, but I do not like a narrow forefoot in my boots. The fit of these boots is just about perfect for me, but I would imagine that people with normal width or wider feet would feel constricted with the normal… Full review

Eddie Bauer Vashon boot

A basic, average, somewhat leather waterproof boot. The longer I wear them the more I can point out the faults. I got a Sierra Trading Post gift card for Christmas and decided to get yet another pair of boots. They were cheap and I can tell why. The cost cutting measures by EB for having price point item in the stores is why you can hardly even find a review or mention of this model online. They must not have sold many considering the web presence is almost non-existent.  I have had them for a… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

Materials used are rubbish. The store replaced the first pair which leaked water through the Gore Tex membrane after 6 months of summer walking. The second pair started to disintegrate after 8 months at the front panels I first bought a pair of these in 2020 at Portwest, Killarney, Kerry. Within six months one shoe started leaking through the Gore Tex membrane and the store kindly replaced them.  However, within nine months, the side panels at the front of both shoes started to crack and come apart.
