ITT: Post your boots, ask questions, give recommendations etc

I took these Keen Gypsum II's through Southern Africa in January. Could not recommend more. Great for hiking and the only issue I noticed was that the sole is a bit thinner than I'd like.

>>
>>1250769
these are the only pair of merrell's i've owned, but they're great. i only wear them when i expect to encounter snow, so i haven't put a whole lot of miles on them, but the miles i have put on them have been some tough ones, and they've done everything i've asked.

Solid three season boots but from my experience they handle snow pretty well too.
Gonna get another pair after 10 years when I finally destroy the ones I have

I’m rocking Moab FST Ice ATM.

Guys, I have a really stupid question.

These boots are great, but they are loose fitting at the ankle, like at the top rim of the shoe.

I.... is that what the loop is for?

Pic related is why I bought the boots. On sale at an REI garage sale and I just couldn’t pass up.

Tell me if I fucked up on this /out/.

A few weeks ago, got myself a pair of Karrimor KSP Grampian eVents. It looks like Karrimor has discontinued them, which is probably why they were on sale at the outlet store for 40% off.

Pros so far seem to be:
>Been through seven circles of hell and back since I got them, and while the leather clearly isn't as aesthetic anymore as it was out of the box, besides that they're still in excellent condition
>Best outsole of any boots I've ever bought, I don't think it's physically possible to slip in them. Been over rocks in nasty rainstorms and it felt just as safe as walking down a dirt road on a sunny day.
>Comfy as shit, feels like walking on a pillow
Cons so far:
>They seem to have been built for winter snow trips, because they insulate body heat like a motherfucker. My feet feel like they're in an Auschwitz oven after 30 minutes of walking. And more like two minutes if I decide to take a rest break in a place where they're exposed to direct sunlight, the leather seems to heat up faster than a frying pan
>The toe bumper is microscopic in size, I don't think it's large enough to protect against anything at all and is pretty much useless
>Still relatively expensive compared to the other boots in the store even with the discount (a bit over $160)

Where they worth it /out/ or do you think I could have gotten a better bang for my buck?

From left to right, work, walking, hiking. I want to take good care of these, the work boots are tough because every day requires a cleaning, the middle boots are a challenge because I don't want to upset the leather and ruin them, but the hiking boots are a breeze, really nice.

I feel as if I need a larger insole in the middle pair, they're just a hair too floppy, even with good socks on.

Got these a few moths ago to replace my old Meindl Borneos that have served me for about more than 8 years. Not that the Meindles have died, the soles and front ends have just been worn thin.

Must admid that my new Hanwags fits me a lot better out of the bow that the Meindls did back then. But then again i have narrow feet and the new boots seem to fit more snugly around the middle which prevents my heel from slipping

don't really do it for me desu, and I think burgundy leather looks goofy.

if I was dropping that kind of cash I'd probably go with Nick's, maybe JK (another White's spinoff, very small, good rep). Or custom Limmers if I wanted to hike in the damn things, though the wait list is killer and I'd want to talk to them about suitability for fire use.

dey aite. comfy out of the box, but they didn't last long for me. soles peeled off partway through a trip and I had to duct tape them back on to make it back to the trailhead. for the money, I'd hope for better.

>>1253572
that was pretty much my experience with pic related. particularly since these guys use some weird sizing--I can only assume that they all use the same lasts that otto white brought to spokane in 1903 or whenever--so if you don't get them fitted by the manufacturer they'll probably be too narrow.

having said that, the heel digs in very nicely on steep, loose slopes and when walking on and through slash piles, especially if you have a vibram lug sole rather than whatever goofy fashion shit >>1252627 wants to get. but if you're not in that kind of country, no thanks jeff.

They aren't fashion boots, I need them since I'm in the conservation corps and all leather construction is required for wildland fire. I'll be getting the fire resistant lug sole, the picture was more just for the color. Whites got bought out. I need to look into jk and nicks more since I'm getting custom fit and fire shit anyways, just really don't like the look of roughout and it doesn't do as well in the wet in my experience.

These aee my absolute favourite for hiking and day to day wear. Theyre waterproof comfy nimble and quiet. Non vibram so no slipping over tree roots mossy rocks or sumbmerged ones. Ive happily done 30km hikes in them without discomfort. Theyre cheap also.

Main con though, is if your stationary on a sunny day, the rubber absorbs the heat and turns them into little ovens.

Is anyone ITT autistic enough about boots to identify what model the these Merrells are? I got them as a gift from my father 15 years ago when I took outdoor ed in high school and since then they've been so perfect that they've survived 5 pairs of potential replacement boots. Now they're on their last legs and I'd overpay to have another pair if I could find them.

that would work really well actually for ankle support and shit.

its almost a jack, and those are comfortable when broken in, I mean they are literally GI's with a reinforced shin plate. those are fine, stop being an asshole, even if anon just wanted them for ascetics, if it makes him happy, and protects him from roots and falls, then why bother railing him over it?

Belmont-anon, these will serve you better though. there's a cheaper hard leather variant if you prefer.

Ordering was great, i went with J.K Boots because when i called them, the guy making my boot answered and not a receptionist, real genuine family owned business. I just sent in my fit sheet, and about 2 weeks later they sent me a try-on test pair (which is really cool they do that) i called them and told them what needed to be fixed on the try on pair, and then 4 weeks later my boots came in. lemme tell ya, having a boot that fits so well to the exact contours of your feet to the point that air suction occurs is an unforgettable experience.

Break in was great, ill admit, the first 2 weeks sucked, because i was working in PIC RELATED in wyoming for the first 2 weeks i had them, going up and down steep mountains with a chainsaw, yeah it felt like i was standing barefoot on a linoleum floor for 2 weeks. Then after that the foot mold started setting in and now these boots are the most comfortable pair of shoes ill ever own, im not joking i could sleep in these puppies.

another plus i didnt expect was how well these things air out, i have REALLY sweaty feet that eat away at socks and ive yet to even heavily sweat in these things once.

J.K is the real deal, im serious you should consider them, tell them Trevor sent ya if you ever do

I haven’t but I want to try the vivobarefoot boot. 230 is a little pricey, maybe they go on sale?

I’m so tired of footwear not designed for the human foot.
>>
>>1253436
Warning, these boots reach about 6,000,000 degrees after 15 minutes of use. Super comfy once you get used to that though

Going on my first real "hike" in Sedona in a couple of weeks. Don't know shit about hiking boots. Want to get a good pair that I can use at home (Virginia) and out there. I go to parks and trails a lot, but I want to take this to the next stage.

I see a ton of $200+ price point hiking boots ans I've tried to research this but I feel kinda overwhelmed. I am having trouble justifying spending hundreds on shoes when I can't even understand the difference between their functions.

What do you guys recommend?
>>
>>1256760
Thats why I'm looking at the Mini Mil. Its normally around $130
>>
>>1256854
I recommend not thinking to hard about it. Find a good deal online if you're patient as you can usually just return something doesn't for well or go to a store and try something on. The benefit to spending money on boots is how long they last. Also, don't feel like you need boots.

Woah those are awesome, exactly what I am looking for in boot. Price is high but not unreasonable for what they are.

I put these through the ringer this weekend and they exceeded all expectations. Absolutly recommend. Only issue is they did not perform as well on slick rocks as well as my brothers llbean hiking boots. I wouldn’t have noticed if my brother was not sprinting up slick smooth rock hills.

Got these faggots months ago.

Every trip I've taken where I hike more than 5 miles I get terrible blisters on the tops of my toes and have to break out moleskin. Any advice? Worn them with those thicker Kirkland wool blend socks and a thinner double-layer wool blend but same shit happened. It seems like the top of the boot is just too damn stiff.

Real shame because the boots feel super sturdy and actually fit really well for flat walking.
>>
>>1257083

blisters mean your foot is pressing up against the shoe too much.

You're probably wearing shoes that are too tight at the tip (causing your toes to squeeze up against the tops).

I can't stand wearing wool socks because they usually have a large weaving pattern. To avoid blisters I try to use thin, sleek socks.
>>
I need some ankle boots or trainers so I can fit my puttees in and walk in mostly urban areas (and not so urban areas ofc).

Under £60 would be preferred but I can expand my price range if I have to.
>>
>>1257088
bummer. when I tried them on the larger size had too much heel slip.

any sock brands you prefer?

Maybe it's because I've historically used really shitty boots, but these are top tier comfy.
>>

The problem I have with stores is I feel pressured to make a fast decision and buy something. That is really bad for buying shoes. And online is worse since it's a lottery and you don't know if the size will be right.

Then buy salolamodingdongs or RAHLowas or HanSolos or David Earle Keenes, something higher end, or go to a store that sells hiking boots and have the shoeboy help fit you or harden up your feet by making an effort to walk more, but for cryin out loud don’t go posting fashion boots that are going to get you hurt.
>>
>>1257083
probably wrong size, or just the wrong last for your foot shape
you can lace for more room in the toebox by not crossing eyelets; it'll feel too loose at first. never tried this with boots, but works great with running shoes

>>1257312
how flat do you need and what have you tried? if you're looking for a leather work boot, drew's klamath, drew's forest trail, maybe nick's FT last (you have to click through the pictures a bit) or danner super rain forest. there's also leather heavy hikers like the asolos people have been posting, various danner hiking boots, lowa tibet/baffin, merrell wilderness, etc.

but are you sure you need boots, because it sounds like altra trail runners might be just your thing.
>>
>>1257312
oh, and if you're down to try some odder shit there's russell moccasin co or the ll bean maine hunter boots. technically fulfill a lot of ppe requirements but nevertheless quite flat and flexible. there's a guy on the mtbr forums who uses them for trail work.
>>
>>1257331
I couldn't wear Merrell Moabs for more than 30 minutes around the house. I couldn't stand Salomon Quest 4D GTX /k/-meme editions for more than 5 minutes. The heel cup was INSANE on those things.

I have a pair of Merrell Capra Rise sneakers that are OK. They have a little arch, but that's fine.

Forced myself to wear an expensive pair of Chippewa Apache boots for about a year with foam insoles that I modified to flatten out the extreme slope to the toebox.

The boots I've had the best luck with are "duty" style boots like Bates and Magnum brand stuff. I guess something like that with a little less "mall cop" A E S T H E T I C would be ideal/
>>
>>1257341
yeah, try altras imo. I like the superior (also available as a "boot" of sorts) and the olympus.

They were the Rhodesian forces boots, you could get them with conventional soles or the smooth no track left behind sole that it was originally designed with. They were like $250 and you had to preorder them. Nugget enterprises said that they might do it again. I didn't get them cause I didn't know quality. So if anon that has them, are they worth the 250
>>
>>1258677
They're pretty good quality, runs a bit big but that's ok as I can fit a nice insole in them. They were less than 150 but if you say 250 then 250 is what I'll sell them for

Price point is anywhere up to around $200.

It's usually a goretex layer under the leather. I've had good luck with boots that have it and I spray herbicide for a living. Though if you fully submerge your boot in water, it will take forever to dry, but it will keep it out as long as it doesn't go over the top of the boot.
>>
>>1259370
Still too large in the evening/after a couple hours hiking? Things swell after a while, so it's actually good if they're a bit too large in the morning

I'd say they're very close to "just right" after hiking or working a few hours, still if you know what I mean, I find myself banging my toe on the ground to get a tighter fit. Not sure if that made sense, or if I'm the only one who does that, but yeah I'll try some thicker insoles.

For soles I can recommend those, bit pricey but really comfy: https://www.amazon.de/FootActive-SPORT-Einlegesohlen-Sport-Freizeit/dp/B00FY34X9M

They're reliable enough but not really field repairable so you wouldn't catch me in the backcountry with any boa stuff. On boots they're kind of gimmicky. Get some boots with D ring eyelets or pulley eyelets instead and you'll get that same uniform tightness across the foot. Examples would be the vasque sundowners or the asolo tps series.
>>
>>1266835
from the inside out: foot powder, thin wicking inner sock (silk or polypro/coolmax), possibly more powder, thick outer sock, boot. Worked fine for me.

I have the finnish army leather boots and i can say they are amazing. The only drawback is that they are slippery on ice (at least the pair i bought. there are many variants of the sole but i dont know how the others do on ice). If you buy unused ones they will last forever. I think the varusteleka ones are used so they might not last that long. In finland there is this "sa kauppa" (SA=suomen armeija=finnish army, kauppa=store. There you can get unused great quality boots but only if you live in finland.

Just to clarify that "they last forever" if you maintain them properly. The used ones are usually fucked, not stored properly and not maintained properly.

so i know this isn't boot related but this is the only footwear thread i see so i was wondering if you guys could help.
i love running barefoot and have been doing it for a few years but due to some health issues with the bottoms of my feet, i need a pair of shoes. but i want something as minimalist as possible so i can still feel as free as i once was.
have some booty for the trouble.

>TL;DR:
what would the best brand of sandal shoe be for a guy that hates actual shoes.

By the way i have $150 to blow and they can't be vibrams because i am missing a toe.

What would be a good outdoor/hiking/combat boot to buy?

I used to sell Caterpillar branded stuff, it was just a cheap boot that was favored by a lot of mexican dayworkers. You're better off with really anything else mentioned in this thread.

why are tracking boots better than cheap military leather boots? Why should i waste so much money? Everywhere i hear it, buy some goretex,tracking, wunderwaffel super expensive boots, dont go to Altay with ordinary military boots. What should i buy if i have 100$?

(Old style) combat boots have almost non-existent padding, thus will take ages to break in, you can't just buy new ones and go on a long hike straight away.
Also usually quite heavy if that's a worry to you

Got myself some old British army pattern boots (assault boots?), the full leather ones with polyurethane soles. Turns out that shit hydrolyses and falls apart after 15 or so years and the ones I got must have been waiting around that long since they looked pristine but the sole lasted a month.

Would a cobbler have a sole compatible with it if I just drop it off with him or should I buy some vibram soles myself and get them attached professionally?

Bought these years ago and have gone hundreds of miles over all kinds of terrain. Only issue ever is that one of the laces is wearing out.

>ordered a pair of Lowa Renegade LL (the leather version without Goretex) almost 2 weeks ago as a warm season boot
>still haven't received them, and now upon re-checking the site I ordered from says "available again by Aug 20", while when I ordered it had said "3-4 work days"
REEE they were the only seller supposedly having them on stock in my size (EU48.5/UK13), now it's either phoning them to cancel my order or waiting until summer is almost over. Goddamit, this world is made for ants

I'd much rather have a zipper in the front, but beggers cant be choosers.

Hey guys, I'm looking for some good recommendations on boots.
I'm mainly looking for all-terrain, all-weather preferably in mid-top length and black in color, and they need to be durable as hell.
My limit is no more more than $70 since money is tight.
Any good recommendations?
>>
could some UK (or EU) bros recc me some good boots for hiking pls
preferably no more than £100-120 or less
>>
>>1266297
you did fine, anon.
>>
>>1273741
>$70
Hit up the local thrift store or craigslist and hope you find something in your size. Any boot that cheap will be some fragile Walmart-tier shit.

Bought a pair over Christmas, they feel weird but they're pretty rugged and really grippy, not as flexible as other barefoot shoes but you can get used to them easy.

Anyone know decent boots for flat feet and for maximum comfiness?
>>
>>1253406
I've had a bunch of Timberlands, comfy and work well enough, but they wear out in a year or two for me. I'm pretty rough on boots though and end up being in rough as fuck terrain lots of jagged rock and cacti though.

I keep buying them though cause they're cheap and I know they fit my giant odd shaped feet, what's $70 every year or three?

Last year I went for a two week hike in the Scotish Uplands. A whole lot of bogland soaked my shoes and I had to give up after only three days and 60 miles.

The next couple of weeks my feet completely lost all skin and I pretty much couldn't walk.

> pic related, the kind of shoe i took

What kind of shoe would I need for this? I met a lady who was wearing gaiters and she had the exact same problem.

I really want to finish the hike (Southern Upland Way) but I am scared I get the same problem? What shoes do I need?

A compareable shoe, also Meindl.
