    This thread will hopefully be filled with info, tips and good advice from our members on caring for your feet. I’m not an expert but as I get older I am noticing more issues with my feet and went searching through this section and didn’t find much info on proper foot care for problems people...

    So I'm thinking about replacing my hiking shoes, but I'm on the fence on what to try out this time around. I'm currently wearing Keen Voyageurs, which I've loved so far, and I've previously worn through several pairs of Merrells. Not opposed to mid-height, but I want to stay as far under $100...

    I posted a question awhile back about hiking boots, and got some good advice. Does anyone have recommendation for, not really hiking, but more just everyday boots, something pretty tough, comfortable for walking around property, etc. etc., standing and walking for long periods. I'm kind of...

    I work about 20 miles from home. Both home and work are about 60 miles from BOL. I am male, 5'-11", 220 lbs (btw that is changing for the lesser) in good health. I need recommendations for some high-quality hiking boots to get me home, and to my BOL if need be. I would wear these daily (office...

    I'm shopping for pair of replacement hiking boots and would like something that might last longer than a year. I've tried the Solomon Quest GTX and Merrill Mid Moab and found them to feel good but was unhappy that they both only last about a year before the tread pattern is worn down...

    Hey All! I only own one pair of combat boots and some mud boots. I've tried to run in my combat boots, but they're awful for that. It's almost as exhausting to sprint in my boots as it is with my BOB or my Lv.III plate carrier. I'm a smallish guy, and I like to be light on my feet. Could...

    2 years ago my husbands boss gave him a new pair of casual boots for Christmas that he just loves. They are so worn out now, I can't even find a brand name. I asked him once if he knew what they were and he said he couldn't remember. I have been searching the web for weeks, trying to find them...

    I'm looking for a boot that will bridge the gap between my running shoes and my steel toes. Something that's all leather with a gore tex membrane. Something under 8 inches but high enough to protect my ankles. My budget is 150 but i may go to 200. Also who makes good gore tex gaiters

    Just wanted to throw everyone a bone about this sweet deal. I stumbled on to these, and am so glad I did. LA Police Gear is selling these at the closeout price of $39.99, plus shipping. They are rated as seconds because of minor scuffs or imperfections. The boots I recieved are in amazing...

    Ive been looking for a good pair of hot/warm weather boots. I like in south central wisconsin, and already have a pair of insulated muck boots for the colder months, but as far as the summer months i have nothing. I was thinking more along the line of a pair of desert combat boots or some type...

    I bought these boots for hiking and I thought I would share. I love, love, love, them! They feel amazing. I was worried about them being to hot because they have a thin insulation in them to keep you warm in the winter, but my feet has not gotten hot yet. (I live in Texas) What she doesn't say...

    Hi, all. I recently bought a pair of Harley Davidson Will Boots, and thought I'd give a review on them for everyone here. I'm going to use mine as bug out boots, every day wear, airsoft, and hunting. This is my own measure of their ruggedness. First off, these things are TOUGH. Thick leather...

    I picked these up in june or july on sale at a local Target for $25: DuPont ThermoLite? :confused: Took 'em out earlier this morning to break 'em in to see if they're really waterproof or merely water-resistant, and check for fitment issues that may lead to blisters from an extended hike. The...

    What would you choose for winter clothes in SHTF? I been thinking on something that would be durable, keep you dry when wet, light weight, and not cost an arm and leg. In a city environment I don't think military clothes would be a good choice because you would stand out too much, unless it is...
