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.

Keen Targhee III Waterproof Mid

"Hiking boot" with zero toe protection? Buy something else if you intend to actually hike. I have had my old pair of Durand 2 waterproof boots for something like four or five years and have been happily hiking in them all over the US. The bottoms have finally worn down to nothing and I needed to replace them. I went to my local outfitter and purchased a brand new Keen hiking boot, which is listed on their website as a best seller, and was excited about everything including fit and looks. It turns… Full review

Lowa Camino GTX

High price for a boot that didn’t last past two months. I work in high alpine environments doing conservation projects and am always looking for a boot that can span the chasm of Comfortability, Durability, and Affordability. I thought the Camino GTX would be the boot to rule them all. While the boot remained comfortable, I have multiple blown seams and a sole that needs replacing after only two months of use. I tried to warranty through Lowa, but they were not helpful with the process. I was… Full review

Oboz Bridger Mid Waterproof

Good boot that after breaking in has been very comfortable for both general hiking and backpacking. The waterproofing has held up over the last year and has continued to keep my feet dry. These have been used in everything from 95 degrees and humid to 25 degrees with some snow on the ground and they have been comfortable through all of it. After a full year with these boots I feel comfortable saying that I'd buy them again. I've taken them through mud, water, over rocks and snow covered paths and… Full review
