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

Merrell Speed Strike Mid Waterproof boots

Comfortable boots that are durable for their weight. These are good for people who want something more substantial than trail running shoes but don't want to be weighed down or feel restricted by backpacking boots. Based on my experience so far, I recommend them for backpackers, peak baggers, and hunters. When I bought these boots I was in urgent need of some waterproof boots for work, and these were available locally and immediately. This model isn't listed on the Merrell website, and as far as… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof

These hiking boots are perfect for beginner or well-seasoned backpackers. No matter if the trail is dry, muddy, underwater, snowy, rocky, sandy, or anywhere in-between, these boots held up! I would recommend these boots for anyone looking to get into backpacking or who needs to replace their well loved hiking boots. These were my first pair of hiking boots, and I have had many since then. I bought them used from REI for $35. I was new to BPing, broke, and nervous being the only BIPOC I knew in the… Full review

Altra Lone Peak Hiker

Lightweight, comfortable, and durable shoes that are great for the weekend hiker looking to move to more modern hiking footwear I wanted an upgrade from some big box outdoor store hiking boots that I bought years ago for an upcoming trip. I was convinced I wanted a lighter hiking shoe because I didn't like the heavy feeling and the ankle rub that came with my old boots. After trying on a lot of hiking shoes, I was fortunate to have an experienced store employee ask if I was okay trying on the Altra… Full review
