Columbia Newton Ridge Plus II Suede Waterproof

This is a good budget hiking boot. It is waterproof and durable, but not very breathable or supportive. Water Properties: Waterproof, with water-repellent leather These boots are advertised as waterproof, and they are. I have worn them through streams, as well as placed them in a bathtub with several inches of water, and they haven't let any through. The leather is also hydrophobic, even while underwater. Because of this feature, the leather gets wet very slowly, and dries fast. The water resistance… Full review

Altra Lone Peak Hiker

Lone Peak 5 and Lone Peak Hiker purchased directly from Altra inventory 12 months ago in 2021 answered my need for hiking through towns and on moderately challenging trails. The upper material on both the Lone Peak 5 and Lone Peak Hiker failed after 5 months of normal use. Altra said this was normal. I wonder if the Altra shoes mentioned here were manufactured well over twelve months ago, perhaps over two years ago, with upper material less strong and less durable than the upper material used in… Full review

Timberland Chocorua Trail Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots

Great versatile waterproof boots for the money. Great value. I have had a pair of these for 15 years. They finally wore out in the heel and I'm buying two more pairs. My originals were brown leather with green fabric. They are now brown leather with bronze fabric. Still the same boot. I am buying a pair in all black next time.  These boots should last you 10 years if you take care of them. In the 15 years I owned my first pair. I changed out the laces once and the insoles once. That's all. They… Full review

Oboz Bridger Mid Waterproof

I am a birds hunter. In the first 10 minutes walking in wet grass my feet were soaked. They are almost brand new. Other than that I love them. Second set in two years Great boot. Rugged and good traction. I can be on my feet all day on concrete for work or in the grouse woods of norther Michigan. Only con I have is that they are not water resistant let alone waterproof. Had to drive 70 miles home to get a different set of boots to finish a weekend hunting trip. Full review

Lundhags Forest II

For real wilderness travel in tundra landscape. Lundhags single layer boots have been the best for decades. That being said, they are not the best for every type of terrain and climate. They may very well be the best all rounder out there though! Aesthetics is a personal preference so I won't go into that any further, see pictures. Fit: Lundhags are not your average boot. They will not have the "sock fit" of other more athletic boots. These are more "airy" around your foot and this is a good thing,… Full review

Danner 453 GTX

I have had my Danner 453 for 11 years and it's finally time to replace them: with another pair. I bought my pair of 453's in December of 2010. I wear them to work several times a week, on hunting, fishing, and hiking trips, and I wore them almost exclusively for the three years I was in Germany to explore all over Europe due to the diverse terrain (castles, vineyards, steep trails, cobblestone city streets etc.) and the unpredictable weather. These boots have been solid performers, keeping my feet… Full review

Danner FullBore Coyote

Hiking in desert or hot weather requires a different hiking boot than one that would be worn in wet deciduous forests. This boot is great for desert and/or hot weather hiking. Living in both Mississippi and Oregon, I need a wide range of different boots. In Oregon’s deep snow and cold temperatures, warm is wonderful. In the Mississippi heat, cool is wonderful. There is no boot that can cover both of these extremes comfortably. The Fullbore Coyote Hot may prove to be the coolest boot around. (I… Full review

Lowa Zephyr GTX Mid

Hard wearing, very comfortable, good quality. Poor grip on hard wet surfaces. Great boots, well made, very comfy, but rubbish on wet rock (some debate that this is not their intended use but nothing advertised accordingly).  Put a Vibram sole on them and I would buy again, but do not venture into the mountains in the UK weather!! Have worn every day for general use for about 1.5 years and the sole has worn through, uppers are mint but cannot resole. Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

NO LONGER a Merrell fan. Back in 2009 I spent way more than I ever thought I would for a pair of Merrell boots for our trip to Philmont NM Scout Ranch. The performed exceptionally, turned out to be well worth the expense. Over the years I bought 6 more pairs, a couple of them being Gore-Tex. One of the pairs failed a few years back and Merrell replaced them. My newest pair of Gore-Tex Merrells began to leak so I sent them a note. Since Gore-Tex is a membrane and not a coating I assumed they would… Full review
