Hiking Boots
    #3470804 - 12/09/04 03:48 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I'm hiking the Chicago Basin in Colorado (up above Durango) in June and am looking for some new hiking boots to get broken in. Wiccan- you mentioned your boots in another thread, so maybe you have a suggestion for me. Any suggestions for a good pair of hiking boots? Which ones should I stay away from?

Thanks.

I love my adidas trailrunners for regular hikes and for backpacking I :heart: my Vasques.

I have a pair of Columbia boots for hiking..they are not expensive, $60-100 for a decent pair, and they are just as good as any, in my opinion, as long as you aren't going to do any intense climbing or anything. Birkenstocks are always good too.

Cool. Thanks. Here's the area I'm going to. There are three peaks here that are over 14K. No, that's not me in the pic. No clue who it is.

Yeah, we'll be there for 5 days. Get dropped off of the Durango/Silverton train half way up and then you hike into the basin. I'll have some shrooms for one of the more laid back days.

I'll jump in on the Vasques bandwagon.  I wear these ones...

I've put hundreds of miles on mine, from the top of Mt. Whitney to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and many places inbetween.

Can't go wrong with a pair of Vasques IMHO! :thumbup:

Oh, and BTW, you can buy Vasques at Redwing Boot Stores.

Cool. I'm going shopping tomorrow. Have to get a new backpack to. I'm looking at the Osprey Crescent 90.

BTW, I hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim about 10 years ago. Great trip.

When I did Grand Canyon I went in and out on the South rim.  Took the Kaibab trail down, spent three days exploring at the bottom, and the Bright Angel trail back out.

Hiked out in the middle of the night under a full moon (left the river at 11PM and arrived at the rim just after sunrise).  It was probably one of the best hikes I've ever had! :thumbup:

I said rim to rim but i guess that isn't right. We took the two trials on the south rim. Same ones you took. We went out at about 3am though rather than late night. We were down at the bottom for 3 or 4 days. That was definitely one of my most memorable hikes. I'm told this hike I'm doing in Colorado is awesome. I've been jeeping in the mountains around this area and it is absolutely beautiful.

I ended up buying a pair of Chaco Beckwith hiking boots and an Osprey Crescent 110 backpack. The Beckwith's are highly priced, but I found a good deal online and grabbed them. I got the pack for 25% off. Another great deal. Now I've gotta break these boots in. Planning some shorter hikes for Feb and Mar then a longer one in May before the expedition in July. Plan is to hike into the basin on July 2 and stay there until the 7th. I can't wait!

REI has a nice pair that Merril is making for them.

nice and sturdy, good for packing, unified front so
good for fording and crossings (beeswax sealant).

I had a pair of Vasques that lasted me about 6 years
and hundreds of miles of backpacking and light trail
hiking.

Im a loser, unless I have a pack on my back I always hike in sandals (I don't want to hear any lectures.. I have been warned many many times by -ADK members)...
I have a pair of Bean Gore-Tex books that have lasted a few years. great for hiking in muddy conditions like indian pass in the adirondacks...

I wish I had an REI around here. Closest one is in Houston, about 3 hours from here. I just don't have time to go there. The reviews on the Chaco Beckwith's are great, so they better do me good. They regularly go for $239 a pair. I got them for $179. They sure as hell better perform!

sound pretty fancy.

I love REI.

it used to be that I had to go to seattle to go, but they've
started popping up all over cali.

that place is like home depot...I can roam the aisles for hours
with a semi.
