Timberland White Ledge Mid Waterproof

Used this boot for landscaping, very comfortable but did not keep my feet dry at all. And that's just walking through wet grass! Not good for keeping feet dry! Full review

Lundhags Forest II

A quality pair of boots that will keep your feet warm and dry in the harshest of conditions. Made in Sweden, Forest II is a minimalist, classic 1-layer full grain leather boot. Very occasionally I come across an item of exceptional quality. They tend to be expensive but as Sir Henry Royce said “the quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten'. Lundhags Forest II are probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. Made in Sweden, they are a minimalist, classic 1-layer full grain… Full review

Lowa Renegade Pro GTX Mid

On my second pair after four years on the previous pair with many long backpacking trips throughout the years with no problems—excellent support, no water issues, great comfortable fit... Tried other boots before buying a second pair, but none as good for me. New pair right up there with first pair! Full review

Oboz Wind River III Waterproof

Surprising good boot. Though it is rated as a hiking boot, it would easily stack up as a backpacking boot. The fit was good, it needed no break-in (for me), and continues to hold up to rough terrain. I am pleasantly surprised by this boot. I bought as a last-minute replacement for a failed Zamberlan boot. I hike in rocky terrain in Colorado where my boots see just about every condition. The fit is good, it is long-term comfortable, keeps out sand and small rocks. More importantly for me, the insole/outsole… Full review

Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson

A limited edition boot that turns out to be reliable for cooler, wet weather hikes and hunts. The Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson has a rock-solid upper, is waterproof, fairly lightweight, and has solid traction. This boot shares many similar features with other products from Merrell's MQM Flex Gore-Tex line. Conditions: I’ve worn the Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson boots for 3 months in the spring and summer in the eastern U.S. The terrain mostly consisted of wet, muddy… Full review

Bearpaw Superior

Comfortable and sturdy. Can't feel rocks through the soles like I did with more expensive boots. Climbed Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala with them. I'm a professional geologist and have worn many brands. They fit well and did not require break-in. Good support and traction. Didn't feel rocks through the soles like I did with three other brands that I tested before climbing Pacaya Volcano.  Full review

Vivo Barefoot Tracker FG

Thought I’d try these because I was tired of traditional heavy, clumpy walking boots. Used the boots every day for walking several dogs around fields and river walks. Really poor boot. Sent two pairs back because the sole was coming away from the leather on my third pair and yep, same issue. I’ve given up contacting Vivobarefoot because it’s just so disappointing. The grip on the boots in muddy conditions is incredibly poor, not good at all. The waterproofing is rubbish. Basically it's a fashion… Full review

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
