Recent Hiking Boot Reviews

Vasque Women's Snowblime UltraDry

rated 5 of 5 stars I would recommend them. Very comfortable shoe from the first wearing. The toe box is generous, the size is true, and they keep my feet warm and dry all day. Full review

Merrell Energis Mid Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great fit right out of the box, men's size 10. Good enough for wet trails that aren't ankle deep in water. For men's size 10, average arch, a great fit right off the bat. Stitching is good, footbed is okay so far. After about a cumulative thirty miles of hiking through deep wet grasses and shallow puddles, the "waterproof" description is accurate. I got them during the rainy season in Oregon, which seems to be nine months at a time. I don't walk through lace-deep water with these and if need be,… Full review

Danner High Ground 8" 400G

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used these thru three hunting seasons in rugged malpais country in various hunting seasons and so far they've held up well. Required no break in. Comfortable from the first day. Extremely supportive for a lightweight boot. Full review

AKU Montera GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars Really well crafted and built to last, but a bit stiff for the trails and scrambling. I was sent the Monterra from AKU for testing in exchange for a review. I chose the AKU Monterra because of the lower profile and no heel. I've worn zero drop shoes or sandals for years now and heels aren't my favorite. They put a slight tilt on my foot that I don't like and the heels also get caught on things when I don't want them to.  The Monterra looked like the perfect boot.  Fit:  When I first tried on… Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars Soles not durable (but this may be a weight-related issue. See the detailed review). My wife and I both purchased these boots on the same day, and covered exactly the same mileage. They have been used for a mix of average-hill and some extreme-slope walking. I would not use these on extreme rocky and loose surfaces because the level of grip is not that good. After two years, hers are still fresh and intact on the soles, whilst the soles on mine are very badly degraded (edge lugs crumbling and breaking… Full review

Keen Men's Targhee EXP Waterproof Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars I really like these boots. I agree totally that they are only water resistant. If it pours all day (even with gaiters) the boots will start to take water. You will also feel hard sharp rocks under your feet when you have a heavy load. Great grip and super comfy. Could walk for weeks with these. Very durable and warm and cozy. They do get hot in the summer. Cheers. Full review

Keen Men's Voyageur Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight, not waterproof, soles separate. After ditching Merrell because they turned to very poor quality, I switched to Keen. For the price (I got it for much less than $125 and new) this is a decent lightweight shoe. One should have no expectations about them being waterproof; I knew this going in, so no problem there. However, I've spent a lot of time gluing the soles together, as they simply separate. Not the whole thing but substantial parts where the black tread protrudes from the overall… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

rated 4 of 5 stars Great boots, crappy shoelaces. I was looking for some boots to use for our 10-day hiking trip to Philmont scout camp. I had never owned a pair of Merrells because of the high price. They were recommended by the high end outdoor store in my area. I bit the bullet and bought them. They were GREAT, 10 days on the trail, not one blister. I paired them with some Smartwool socks and liners, and was the only one in our crew who didn't have foot issues. They stayed waterproof for about a year, and then… Full review

Asolo Men's FSN 95 GTX

rated 1 of 5 stars Comfortable but not worth the money because of sole separation. I'm on my second pair. The first pair had the sole separate after hiking the Georgia AT section. Bought a second pair because they are very comfortable, no blisters and keep you dry. I had hoped it was just a bad boot the first time. The second boot had the sole separate two days ago after only hiking a week several years ago and then a handful of just day hikes for the past few years. I don't know if the sole could be glued to the… Full review
