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

Under 5 months old and falling apart. And no response from Merrell. Under 5 months old and falling apart. Full review

Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX

These low hikers were an upgrade from Salomon's XA Pro 3D trail running shoes for me that was well worth the extra investment. The shoe provides excellent support and foot protection for a lightweight shoe, and waterproofing has proved to be durable. Grippy soles showed a fair bit of wear after 18 months, and potential buyers should note the speed lacing system. A great all-around light hiking shoe. You will note that this review looks at two pair of this shoe side-by-side. That is because the midsole… Full review

Hilly Hiker

Cheap n' cheerful yet fit for purpose, actually amazingly so. I even found one ultra runner that was wearing them and had had them for three months and thought them a great value as an all round shoe. I had to replace shoes that were worn out and my second pair had to be all round, everyday, go-to shoes. First choice were replacement Merrells for serious work, the second pair were found in a bargain big box company shop called No 1 Shoes.  I chose a pair of shoes recommended by the senior staff… Full review
