Recent Trail Shoe Reviews

Lowa Men's Renegade II LL Lo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Long lasting shoes build Lowa quality! I typically use my shoes for approach and hikes. So I need a great support when carrying climbing gear. The Lowa Renegade have a polyurethane mid sole, which is heavier but will not collapse over time or under heavy load. They are made of nubuck (is top-grain cattle leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibers, producing a velvet-like), so they are warm. I even walk with them during winter… Full review

Oboz Women's Sawtooth Low Waterproof

rated 5 of 5 stars Very comfortable. No break-in necessary. Size was true. Other hiking shoes I have tried seem to be too big at the ankle. Full review

Merrell Men's Continuum

rated 1 of 5 stars High arch and comfortable, that's the only good. I've had them a month. The eyelets catch on each of the other boot's when doing anything but walking in a straight line. They've tripped me up multiple times. If sitting with feet crossed they will tangle. I've broken one plastic open eyelet and bent two metal ones from catching on each other. I have yet to wear them and not have them catch on each other or something else. To compare, I wear work boots everyday for 30 years in all kinds of positions. Full review

Oboz Men's Sawtooth Low

rated 3 of 5 stars Not happy with the shoe being slick on wet concrete and wood. Dangerous on a sidewalk or pavement with a little bit of ice. Comfortable and warm, but if rainy or icy I have to wear different shoes, therefore rate 3 stars and will not buy again. Full review

Ecco Terracruise II

rated 2 of 5 stars Ecco cheaped out on the redesign. They cheaped out. The original Terracruise was a much better shoe. Better materials and design. The original shoe was a favorite for light and mid-range hikes, 2-10 miles. The big issue for me is the now non-elastic ankle padding. It slips back and forth, instead of hugging the ankle, rubbing your ankle raw after just a few miles. You can tell the shoe is cheaply made, compared to its predecessor.  Full review

Adidas Men's AX 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Very versatile on or off pavement. They are extremely light compared to other trail shoe brands. Fitment is comfortable and the footbeds are sufficient and provide necessary padding while running on uneven terrain. I've used these shoes for hard surface, all-day walking, and backcountry hikes on dry and wet terrain and they have performed well enough to warrant buying another set again. Full review

Merrell Men's Continuum

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I bought them for a trip to Toronto. Huge blisters on my ankles—even without tying them tight. I have a 15-year-old Nike pair that I’m back to wearing. Blisters threes weeks old this weekend. I pissed $100 away. They are very uncomfortable. I have three-week-old blisters on my ankles. I will not wear them again. I will not buy Merrell again. I’m back to wearing my 15-year-old Nike boots. Full review

Keen Men's Targhee II

rated 1 of 5 stars Soles started falling to pieces after only a month or so. This is my second pair of Targhee IIs. My first pair were worn most days for 2-3 years, including much wilderness hiking as well as city walking. I ended up replacing them when the wear on the heal became obvious—they were great. The new pair are at the other end of the spectrum as far as quality. It seems that the glue used to hold the layers of the sole together was substandard. Part of the tread started peeling away after only a few… Full review

Merrell Women's Outmost Ventilator

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I find these shoes really comfortable, lightweight, and cool. I use them for hiking in good weather. I struggle to find shoes to fit my feet. I often find shoes are not wide enough across the ball of the foot, leading to sharp stabbing pains and numbness. I also dislike heavy and hot shoes. These shoes fit my feet really well and the laces customise the fit well so I don't get any pinching or numbness. They didn't seem to need any breaking in for me and I have never had any chaffing. The only downside… Full review
