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

rated 5 of 5 stars
Lundhags Forest II

A quality pair of boots that will keep your feet warm and dry in the harshest of conditions. Made in Sweden, Forest II is a minimalist, classic 1-layer full grain leather boot. Very occasionally I come across an item of exceptional quality. They tend to be expensive but as Sir Henry Royce said “the quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten'. Lundhags Forest II are probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. Made in Sweden, they are a minimalist, classic 1-layer full grain… Full review

Lowa Renegade Pro GTX Mid

On my second pair after four years on the previous pair with many long backpacking trips throughout the years with no problems—excellent support, no water issues, great comfortable fit... Tried other boots before buying a second pair, but none as good for me. New pair right up there with first pair! Full review

Oboz Wind River III Waterproof

Surprising good boot. Though it is rated as a hiking boot, it would easily stack up as a backpacking boot. The fit was good, it needed no break-in (for me), and continues to hold up to rough terrain. I am pleasantly surprised by this boot. I bought as a last-minute replacement for a failed Zamberlan boot. I hike in rocky terrain in Colorado where my boots see just about every condition. The fit is good, it is long-term comfortable, keeps out sand and small rocks. More importantly for me, the insole/outsole… Full review

Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson

A limited edition boot that turns out to be reliable for cooler, wet weather hikes and hunts. The Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson has a rock-solid upper, is waterproof, fairly lightweight, and has solid traction. This boot shares many similar features with other products from Merrell's MQM Flex Gore-Tex line. Conditions: I’ve worn the Merrell MQM Flex Luna Mid Gore-Tex Filson boots for 3 months in the spring and summer in the eastern U.S. The terrain mostly consisted of wet, muddy… Full review

Bearpaw Superior

Comfortable and sturdy. Can't feel rocks through the soles like I did with more expensive boots. Climbed Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala with them. I'm a professional geologist and have worn many brands. They fit well and did not require break-in. Good support and traction. Didn't feel rocks through the soles like I did with three other brands that I tested before climbing Pacaya Volcano.  Full review
