Danner Mountain Light Mojave Brawler

Handmade to an exceptionally high standard in Portland, Oregon, using the best possible materials, these rugged boots are built to withstand as much punishment as you can give them and last a lifetime. They look superb and if needs be they can be resoled and refurbished to an "as new" standard. Buying a new pair of boots is a big event as along with socks it is probably the most important purchase you will ever make (and at significant cost too!) as once worn you are stuck with them for years potentially.

L.L.Bean Women's Alpine Hiking Boots, Leather

These are use-right-out-of-the-box hiking boots! Really! Leather hiking boots that fit perfect and can be hiked in immediately. I purchased these in MN at L.L.Bean as replacements for an older worn out pair of leather Coleman boots. I planned on some break-in time and was taking these with me to GA to hike a portion of the AT.   I wore them out of the store and soon found that I didn't need to worry about break-in time as they fit perfect without rub points. Worn in GA hiking close to 50 miles… Full review

Asolo Men's Neutron GV

Lightweight, sturdy, long lasting, and comfortable right out of the box. Gore-Tex makes them waterproof and breathable. The Asolo Neutron Gore-Tex boot has proven to be exactly the boot I‘ve needed for my backpacking requirements. When I first began shopping around for a boot in 2016, I was looking for a boot that would be waterproof and provide sufficient foot support and most importantly, comfort for my then upcoming backpacking trip on the North Country Trail in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Hi-Tec Men's Sierra V-Lite

Very poorly made. Soles will fall off after very little use. Horrible boots. On my third use, the sole of one of the shoes suddenly separated from the upper. I did not get it caught and was not on particularly rough terrain. Boots had less than 12 miles use at this point. Fortunately, the shoe was still sturdy enough to walk the three miles back to my car, at which point I discovered that the other sole was about to fall off. Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid

Great boots, my Scarpa mustangs died after ten years with detached soles at the rear, these taking their place, to travel to Canada (Montreal and Quebec) into the snow. Straight out of the box fit, no need to break them in, comfortable straight off the get-go, no cold toes etc Traveling to the US and Canada from Australia, my Scarpa Mustangs from 2010 or thereabouts were packed to go, having been used for other trips in the past. Traveling to Gettysburg, PA, to walk the battlefield I was to find… Full review

Asolo Men's FSN 85

The worst shoes I have ever bought. The sole started crumbling after the first time I wore them. I bought them brand new. Wore the boots once. After wearing them outside in the snow for just over an hour the soles of the boots started to crack, separate, and crumble.  Full review

Vivo Barefoot Men's Tracker FG

A lightweight, comfortable alternative to traditional hiking boots. I bought the VivoBareFoot Tracker FG after discovering my winter hikers were an uncomfortable fit after a year of a predominantly barefoot lifestyle. I’ve only had these for about a month but I was won over the very first day. My feet are protected from cold, snow, ice, and slush in a very comfortable manner. Right out of the box they felt "broken in" and flexible. Trail feel is better than I’d expected, traction is adequate… Full review

Keen Women's Terradora Waterproof Mid

An excellent boot for day-hiking or backpacking, these boots deliver comfort and breathability while maintaining good support and water-resistance. Recommended! I wore the Keen Terradora Mid WP boot on my 2019 LASH of the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Virginia, and they performed very well across multiple types of terrain. Fit: The boots feature Keen's trademark wide toebox, which provides feet the chance to spread out and ventilate easily without sliding or creating friction. Comfort: The break-in… Full review

Lowa Camino GTX

If you are looking for a full backpack boot, the Lowa Camino GTX is worth a try. Rugged terrain, mountain hardness, and muck are no match. I am not a young man anymore, nor am I a gazelle. I tend to huff down the trails, last one of the pack, pretty much just a tired old pack mule. That does not mean that I am ready to give it up, and even an old mule needs new shoes sometimes. It was that need for shoes (or boots as the case may be) that brought me to find these Lowa Camino GTX. I am a fussy footwear… Full review
