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

Herman Survivors Bison Steel Toe

Cheap, durable enough work boots that perform about as advertised. A little better than Brahmas and really worth the money. As someone who grew up in Ariat, Durango, Justin, and other cowboy boots, I was looking for a cheap pair of steel toe work boots to kick around in. These boots fit the bill as a pair of waterproof wellingtons for around $70. I love them much more than I expected and wear them often. They do come a little dry but become very supple with the use of some linseed or mink oil. These… Full review

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
