Salewa Mountain Trainer Lite Mid GTX

Excellent lightweight, supportive men's multi-day backpacking boot. Needed to replace my backpacking boots. As I'm getting older my trips are getting down to 4-6 days with about 45-50 lbs. Trips are also mostly Southwest canyon trails with an occasional 14er thrown in. These trails usually have numerous water crossings. These boots have been outstanding. I don't have a wide foot, but my toes do like room. These boots are so comfortable. The traction is awesome in all conditions—on slick rock,… Full review

Keen Targhee III Waterproof Mid

Very comfortable and not too narrow in the toe box. Lightweight boot and still completely waterproof after years of wear. Fit: I like a roomier toe box but with a narrow heel. These fit great and even after hiking all day the fit was still great. Comfort: No break-in needed. These are mid-height so you will need socks that are long enough to prevent chafing on the heel/ back of calf. Support: Seems pretty normal, comfortable throughout range of motion. The rubber toe means that even if stubbed… Full review

Finn Comfort Garmisch

This would be my third pair of Finn Garmisch boots. Amazon's delivery co. for these boots has a not so good review, so I'm likely not going to use them, especially for an extra delivery charge which would make the boots well over $400. For an expensive pair of boots they are worth every dollar. Good to go right out of the box. I wear these boots 12 to 14 hours a days, 7 days a week. I prefer not to wear them in the rain though as I'm not sure if it will damage them. I like them as they are and not… Full review

Belleville Mini-Mil TR102

Good boot. Heel needs wearing in. Order one full US size larger to fit. Heel insert breaks up although can be removed.       Ever since owning the boots, I have worn them every day and this includes in water and in mud. When I go hiking, which often includes walking down slow moving streams and swimming through rock pools dotted along these water courses, the boots get wet, then stay wet whilst worn. Because of the saturated nature of the boot, and some excess movement of the heel up and down… Full review

Lowa Zephyr Mid

Comfortable, but very weak soles. Very comfortable shoes, and lightweight. Well built upper part with natural materials, relatively breathable. The worst thing as many Lowa shoes is the sole durability, which fell apart after not more than 30 -40 times using during winter season, mostly in town. This is a shame for such expensive shoes, especially when the guarantee of 2 years just finished. Size goes smaller than standard, so order a full size up.         Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof

If you have bad ankles and love trail hiking, then here's the shoe for you! After a decade of wearing Merrell Moabs I'd recommend these to anybody who desires quality footwear. I spent 30 years in the military, am very particular of my footwear, and Merrell Moabs have not let me down for the last ten years. After trying several styles of hiking/trail boots I purchased my first pair of Moabs when they became available. I recently just disposed of this pair after the shoe split beyond repair near… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

Great pair of boots for those who backpack or hike constantly. Also acts as a good pair of work boots. The Merrell Moab (mother of all boots) is a great series/model of boot that will forever be my go-to. They are easy to put on and take off at the end of a long day. They're light enough to hike with and durable enough to do the job and enjoy the day. Full review

Lowa Zephyr Hi TF

Pounding the pavement or hitting the rocky trails? These boots fit the bill. Lightweight leather/fabric build makes breaking them in unnecessary, while providing all day comfort. If you're looking for a lightweight, do it all boot, you've come to the right place. During an extended test (one year), they have served as my daily work boot in addition to my preferred trail hiker. Over the course of the year, these boots have seen roughly 400 miles of trails and countless miles on the job while the… Full review

Keen Targhee Vent Mid

For under $200 CAD, better than expected. Hi all—I'd not owned Keen boots before, even though I liked their look. This Targhee was my second set of light hiking boots. Pair #1 was Oboz. A "break in" wasn't needed. The footbed felt good for me (90kg), so I felt confident going into a 12km, 500m up/down, mountain hike with a heavy-ish pack. The boots held up. My feet were achy, however that may be due to fatigue (first hike this year), and overall weight. Day 1, 12km, heavy load = achy feet Day… Full review
