The North Face Hedgehog Futurelight

This product has been around for years and has always been great, but now the fit is not the same as the previous version of the Hedgehog. Great grippy soles and waterproof membrane are a must in the Pacific Northwest—especially with the "Atmospheric Rivers" lately. I've owned three pairs of Hedgehog Fastpack with Goretex liner over the past 6 years and they have always fit my foot extremely well. With my last pair knackered, I've had to replace with the Hedgehog Futurelight thinking it would… Full review

Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator

Purchased directly from Merrell Canada and was told that the soles will mark wood floors. The soles left sticky marks on wood flooring so I could not break them in indoors or check for fit so I returned them. The marks had to be removed from the floor using a Teflon scrubber, paper towel didn't touch work at all! Beware. Can't advise about fit, comfort, support, features, etc. without walking around to break them in—but the soles leave sticky marks on wood flooring so they were returned hours… Full review

Lowa Zephyr GTX Lo

Comfortable, but the soles not sturdy enough. Very comfortable shoes. Although on heavy side you will not feel this while using them. Well built upper part with natural materials, relatively breathable. The worst thing as many Lowa shoes are the sole durability, which get easily broken, while the upper part is still intact. Actually these last longer than other Zephyrs and my first Lowa shoes. I was lucky to use them three years, mostly at town, which is a shame for such expensive shoes. Size goes… Full review

Meindl Comfort Fit Walker

Fantastic shoe for all day comfort. I work as a fee ranger in the summer, which means I spend the day on my feet, either in the kiosk, walking the campground, or making visitor contacts in high-use areas. I'd originally decided on another brand but had difficulty getting sizing help. Hey, I live in a small town in Idaho so a lot of stuff has to be purchased online, especially high quality gear. At any rate, I learned the shoes I was looking at were actually made by Meindl for another outlet and… Full review

Oboz Bridger Low Waterproof

Super well-crafted shoe that excels in certain conditions. I'd heard a lot about Oboz and around a year ago I picked up the Oboz Bridger Low WP. I wanted a hiking shoe that landed between a a "typical" pair of hikers and an approach shoe for three-season hiking and light backpacking use that would deliver on rocky terrain. Something with a stiffer sole and hard rand that still provided some hiking/backpacking comfort. I think these land firmly between those two styles. The stability rivals a boot… Full review

Ozark Trail Shoe

Love these shoes, and glad they came back to Walmart. Awesome traction, and they look really nice. Amazing for the price. Best hiking shoes I have owned. I owned a pair years ago when Walmart carried them. They didn't for years and I kept searching. Traction is amazing on these.  This spring they were back in stock at Walmart and I picked up a new pair. Just as great. Great fit and comfort. Hiked a lot in Colorado in August and can't tell any wear. And the new ones have the same great traction;… Full review

Scarpa Moraine GTX

Comfortable, very durable, well made. I’m a FedEx Express driver and walk a lot of miles. I mainly wear hiking shoes, since hiking is basically what I do. These are lightweight, nicely supportive, and keep my feet dry. The Vibram soles are among the most durable I’ve ever used. After more than a year of wearing these four to six days a week, the soles remain in very decent, usable condition. No tears or rips. No split seams. Great laces. Some of the lugs have worn down, and each heel developed… Full review

Wish you can see the broken rubber upper of the shoe. It is a real waste of my money. Full review

Merrell Continuum

I spent over $100 on Merrell Polartec Continuum boots about 5 years ago. They were kept in a temperature-controlled home, in a closet, and only worn once or twice per year. I am having the exact same problem as a few other folks here. The toe cap has split, right where the toes naturally bend. The material used at that part of the boot is of cheap quality right where the most stress is. I am VERY disappointed. I called Merrell, only to have them say that their warranty is only good for one year. Full review
