Hi-Tec Men's Sierra V-Lite

Very poorly made. Soles will fall off after very little use. Horrible boots. On my third use, the sole of one of the shoes suddenly separated from the upper. I did not get it caught and was not on particularly rough terrain. Boots had less than 12 miles use at this point. Fortunately, the shoe was still sturdy enough to walk the three miles back to my car, at which point I discovered that the other sole was about to fall off. Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid

Great boots, my Scarpa mustangs died after ten years with detached soles at the rear, these taking their place, to travel to Canada (Montreal and Quebec) into the snow. Straight out of the box fit, no need to break them in, comfortable straight off the get-go, no cold toes etc Traveling to the US and Canada from Australia, my Scarpa Mustangs from 2010 or thereabouts were packed to go, having been used for other trips in the past. Traveling to Gettysburg, PA, to walk the battlefield I was to find… Full review

Asolo Men's FSN 85

The worst shoes I have ever bought. The sole started crumbling after the first time I wore them. I bought them brand new. Wore the boots once. After wearing them outside in the snow for just over an hour the soles of the boots started to crack, separate, and crumble.  Full review

Vivo Barefoot Men's Tracker FG

A lightweight, comfortable alternative to traditional hiking boots. I bought the VivoBareFoot Tracker FG after discovering my winter hikers were an uncomfortable fit after a year of a predominantly barefoot lifestyle. I’ve only had these for about a month but I was won over the very first day. My feet are protected from cold, snow, ice, and slush in a very comfortable manner. Right out of the box they felt "broken in" and flexible. Trail feel is better than I’d expected, traction is adequate… Full review

Keen Women's Terradora Waterproof Mid

An excellent boot for day-hiking or backpacking, these boots deliver comfort and breathability while maintaining good support and water-resistance. Recommended! I wore the Keen Terradora Mid WP boot on my 2019 LASH of the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Virginia, and they performed very well across multiple types of terrain. Fit: The boots feature Keen's trademark wide toebox, which provides feet the chance to spread out and ventilate easily without sliding or creating friction. Comfort: The break-in… Full review

Lowa Camino GTX

If you are looking for a full backpack boot, the Lowa Camino GTX is worth a try. Rugged terrain, mountain hardness, and muck are no match. I am not a young man anymore, nor am I a gazelle. I tend to huff down the trails, last one of the pack, pretty much just a tired old pack mule. That does not mean that I am ready to give it up, and even an old mule needs new shoes sometimes. It was that need for shoes (or boots as the case may be) that brought me to find these Lowa Camino GTX. I am a fussy footwear… Full review

Keen Men's Targhee III Waterproof Mid

A comfortable, mid-weight hiking boot with a waterproof-breathable liner that works well for wet terrain. I was so impressed by the fit and performance of my Targhee Vent boots that I decided to buy a pair of waterproof Targhees for use in wet Norwegian conditions. I found an older model on sale and went for it partly for price but also because it has less exposed stitching in the forefoot. My Vents are the Targhee III model and have a similar design and fit. I haven’t put a lot of distance on… Full review

Keen Men's Pyrenees

Classic look that fits my foot. I do not have wide feet but my smaller toes are such that I need the wide toe box that only Keen seems to have. The fit of this boot is normal width but it is a half size smaller, so a size 13 fits my 12 1/2 feet perfectly. As many of you know 12 1/2 is hard to come by. Many reveiwers have complained that this boot kind of cuts into your ankle around the top and I have to agree, it does. I solved that by not lacing the top hooks. If I could offer any advice to Keen… Full review

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
