Keen Men's Koven

Recommended to me by a distance hiker who does sections of the PCT. Like house slippers for comfort; the waterproof version are a tad hot for warmer weather, but I have been wearing these for outdoor stuff for two years and I am most pleased. If you allow water to pour over the sides of the shoes, they are no longer called waterproof. I wore these in a small boat all day on Monday and feet were still dry in spite of squalls of very heavy rainfall. Wonderful hiking shoes! No additional details needed. Full review

Salomon Evasion 2 Aero

Rugged like a tractor...inside too! Low cut, lightweight, highly breathable trail shoe for the most rugged, rocky, and wet trails out there with a grippy sole like Velcro—so stable you can even carry your own heavy pack till you drop. Day 0—Looks can be deceptive, this cumbersome looking clogs when put in action felt feather-light and nimble becoming one piece with the foot I could easily walk, jog, run, jump, and climb with a grip like tiger claws sticking like Velcro to any surface, urban,… Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Lo

The shoes walk perfect, but in only four months the sole is completely worn out. Never again shoes so expensive and no guarantee from Lowa. I walk daily 8-10 miles on the road, nothing special. The shop did send the shoes back to Lowa, but they didn't do anything for me. The shoes cost me 179,95! So for me never again Lowa shoes! Full review

Oboz Women's Sawtooth Low

Really comfortable, but dangerous on wet tracks, tiles, granite, or cobblestones as they slip just like wearing ice skates on ice! Really comfortable but lethal on wet tracks, tiles, granite, or cobblestones as they slip just like wearing ice skates on ice! Have witnessed another person slip and fall and noticed she was wearing the same Oboz hikers. Very disappointed as was on a nine-week overseas walking holiday in Italy, Croatia, France, and Great Britain where surfaces and weather conditions… Full review

Merrell Outpulse Leather

Low cost trail shoe. I wanted a comfortable around town shoe and found these on sale, just two pairs left, I was told, they have just flown from the shelves. The 10 was not quite right, but the 10.5 was perfect. I might have had my winter slippers on!  Now I have had them for nearly a month and can say that they are now my go-to shoes for all my outdoor activities: going to town, daily walk, and the weekend trips on the local hill tracks. One of these tracks is gravel at an average 30-degree slope… Full review

Merrell Men's Moab 2 Ventilator

Loved prior versions. Latest version (shoe has 10/18 date on tongue) is uncomfortable. Had this latest incarnation for about a month and I cannot get them comfortable. I have tried lacing them in different ways and nothing works. I finally put a different insole in and that has helped. But, overall something has changed in manufacturing and I would give this latest bunch a pass. Tried on in store and they seemed fine, but stiff. I had hoped they would break in, but they are not getting any more… Full review

Lowa Men's Renegade II LL Lo

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

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

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
