In order to help you with your backpacking gear, we will present some of the best boots for backpacking. Besides the backpack, boots are probably one of the most important parts of your gear. They need to be comfortable, stable and to make you want to move faster.
Salomon has built hiking boots that will keep you comfortable whilst backpacking or hiking, and, most importantly they will guarantee the ankle stability that hikers and backpackers expect from a boot. This is a high performance boot, prepared to satisfy your needs while running or even when you are going through harsh terrain. The Contagrip provides excellent traction across many surfaces on and off the trail. Salomon Quest 4D 2 GTX has been a top pick for three years in a row and one of the best selling backpacking gears in many countries. The Quest 4D 2 is the footwear that you must posses if you are planning to go backpacking or to sprinting through rough terrain.
What makes this boot the ideal current overhaul of the hiking boot? This model was designed and developed to make it extremely light. The St. Elias is stable and supportive, durable, and water resistant. Most boots make more compromises in these ranges for weight savings than Vasque does with the St. Elias GTX. These qualities are what for quite a long time characterized a decent boot. Your feet and ankles will get top treatment and on long backpacking trips but during shorter day hikes.
These boots are good quality and well made. They feature a beefy structure and extend over the ankle. The armored uppers are a combination of rubber, leather and artificial textile, lined with what Oboz calls “BDRY”; these boots provide great traction both for hiking and backpacking. The lacing system comprises four pairs of riveted metal lace guides across the forefoot, the BFit instep strap anchored to the heel counter using metal D-rings, and two pairs of metal speed-lace hooks on top. The boot opens fairly wide to ease dress and removing. Hence this waterproof hiking boot will suit all those who like to take a real plunge into the water – but without getting their feet wet!
This is a tall shafted backpacking boot that is a perfect work boot for hot dry summers, and a favorite among backcountry wildlands fire groups. It is leather lined for an incredible fit and unmatched moisture leaking prevention. The boots lace up comfortably, and when you are walking across the rocks and roots you will still feel like walking on the street. There is no need for more details after you watch the video below!
