Hanwag Lhasa

The best boot in the world. I have owned most boots on the market—Zamberlan, Meindl, Salomon, Koflach, Alt-Berg, Keen, Brasher, and other Hanwags. The minute you slide your foot into the Lhasa you feel the difference (Amazing). They are double leather construction, soft leather lined, which is so much more comfortable than membrane-lined boots, which make feet sweat more and add friction. Just forget it. Membrane-lined boots repellency doesn't  last. Clean them, treat them, and they will repel… Full review

Keen Terradora II Waterproof Boot

Keen's updated Terradora II Waterproof Boot is described as an "all around trekker," designed with comfort, performance, fit, and traction in mind. This mid-height hiker is just one option in Keen's women's Terradora line, which also includes a low hiker, an open toe sandal, and a toe post sandal. I've been testing the Keen Terradora II Waterproof boots as a replacement for my beloved Keen Targhee boots, a model I have used for the past six or seven years. I no longer backpack, but do hike nearly… Full review

Palladium Pallabrousse

Lightweight hikers for day or overnight use. Okay, Palladium may not be considered world class hiking boots—they tend to fall under the "fashion footwear" category—but I'll remind the reader that the Pallabrousse was developed after WWII for the French Foreign Legion, so their pedigree is sound. They're more known for the canvas models (variants are still made in Israel as well), but I'm reviewing the leather Pallabrousse model. No longer made in France, these (like most footwear) are now made… Full review

Hoka Kaha Gore-Tex

The Hoka Kaha GTX is an updated version of the Hoka Kaha that now features a waterproof Gore-Tex bootie where the previous version had an eVent waterproof lining. The Hoka Kaha GTX's most notable characteristics are the outstanding comfort and stability that is unique to the patented sole design used across entire Hoka line of shoes. The Hoka Kaha GTX takes that unique sole design and combines it with a well thought out leather upper to make a very lightweight, waterproof hiking and backpacking… Full review

L.L.Bean Alpine Hiking Boots, Leather

These are use-right-out-of-the-box hiking boots! Really! Leather hiking boots that fit perfect and can be hiked in immediately. I purchased these in MN at L.L.Bean as replacements for an older worn out pair of leather Coleman boots. I planned on some break-in time and was taking these with me to GA to hike a portion of the AT.   I wore them out of the store and soon found that I didn't need to worry about break-in time as they fit perfect without rub points. Worn in GA hiking close to 50 miles… Full review

Lowa 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

Vivo Barefoot 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 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
