Recommended Posts

Hey there! 
 

I’m new to hiking and living in Vancouver so my Wife and I have been hiking the north shore mountains and plan to explore more. 
 

I’m looking at these boots and would like some thoughts and advise:

-Salomon quest 4D 3 

-Salomon X Ultra Mid 3

-Merrill chameleon 8 leather mid

-Oboz Sawtooth mid B-dry

As a general rule, a brand that may work for me won't necessarily work for you.  This is due to every manufacturer cutting the shape of their boots slightly differently--called the "last" of the boot.  I would recommend finding a brand and model that fits you well and stick with it.  Boots are not something I would recommend ordering on line--find a good outdoor store and try them on, walk around for 20-30 minutes.  A good store will let you do this (in-store).  Good luck!
