Keen Targhee II Waterproof Mid

It's a pretty comfortable boot, right out of the box. While durability is a question mark, given that one eyelet tore out on my first hike, it is the most affordable boot with a roomy toe box that I have found. It's probably best for light to moderate hiking for those on a fairly tight budget. I recently needed a wide toe box hiker due to a freshly healed toe injury. I had been wearing Vasque Breeze II boots for the last few years. The Vasque boots have been quite durable, and up until the last… Full review

Bearpaw Superior

Bearpaw boots are no longer the quality they were in the past. I purchased a new pair of Bearpaw hiking boots when the ones I had for years finally gave out. After hiking in the new ones for only two months, the inside part of the right shoe collapsed, causing me to not even be able to walk properly in them. I'm mad, and disappointed! Full review

Oboz Bridger Mid Waterproof

Excellent winter hiking boots. Bought for winter hiking and they do not disappoint. Personally, the provided EVA insoles don't work for my feet, which is too bad because the boots actually came with two sets. I almost didn't buy them, but tried them with some aftermarket insoles and they were perfect. The boots have great winter grip and work very well with Microspikes and even crampons. They somehow strike a balance of not being too tight or rigid, but still having good support. My feet have never… Full review

Altberg Fremington Walking Boot

Old style quality and modern functionality. Waterproof, all-leather—but light and most importantly with a choice of five width fittings. I've walked thousands of miles in Italian and German footwear, but always accepted that I'd have to deal with blisters on each of my smallest toes. When my oldest pair of boots finally wore out, at the end of 2019, a little research told me that the English boot maker tradition was back—and available, at my local outdoor store. One careful fitting appointment… Full review

Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX

A lightweight mid-height light hiking boot that’s a good all-around choice for all but the heaviest-duty hiking. Mixes relatively light weight and very good support. After about one year and 400+ miles, the soles show some wear, and the midsole feels like some of the cushioning in the forefoot has lost its spring. One of the better, more comfortable choices out there. Salomon’s X Ultra 3 mid has been my go-to light hiker for the past year. I wear them when I figure my low hikers (the X Ultra… Full review

La Sportiva Trango TRK GTX

A boot that for its price does not meet expectations. These are boots with which I had great expectations when buying them. I was struck by the fact that they do not use materials from animals and that the brands that compose them are all first class (La Sportiva, Gore Tex, Vibram). After the first two or three uses, I started to get the first surprises—some parts of the plastic material that covers them had started to peel off, and the sole had literally started to disintegrate, missing pieces… Full review

Alpine Design Hiking Boot

They hurt my feet. Bad!!! Bought at Dicks Sporting Goods on sale for around $50. The boots look great, lace well, and feel comfortable for just walking around short distances. Once I got a pack on and hit the trails, however, after 3 miles I felt like sharp blades were stabbing me on the balls and heels of both feet. It ruined a backpacking trip. I decided to give them another chance a year later and wore them for flat terrain walking with my pack on to practice for Grand Canyon. Again, intense… Full review

Hoka TenNine Hike GTX

The Hoka TenNine Hike Gore-Tex is a new hiking boot design from Hoka where the focus is on providing a highly cushioned smooth ride—and it definitely delivers on that design goal. One of the design features that really stands out—from both a performance standpoint and an in-your-face design statement—is the extended Hubble heel geometry. In use, the Hubble heel provides a very noticeable and beneficial heel-to-toe transition that gives this boot a truly smooth ride, with the added benefit… Full review

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
