To me, the boots I wear hiking or backpacking are the most important piece of my gear. Since I do not carry a spare pair of boots, I depend on the boots I am wearing to complete each hike. I have been partial to natural materials like leather and wool, but I have to admit that the synthetic Lowa Innox Ice GTX Mid hiking boots have changed my mind.  During this period, I was doing the same activities as the last period, except the temperatures experienced were as low as 0 F. I have worn these boots everyday with few exceptions.  To read more please click here.

I have been wearing the Keen Liberty Ridge boots several times a week for the past month. I mention the weather because it has been unusual. A mix of temperatures and no snow. Some nights down to 20 F and some daytime temperatures in the 60’s. Since I rise before 5 am, I am on the ground when it is still frozen. Then, as the temperature rises, the ground surfaces tend to be slippery. These are the conditions I encountered while using the Liberty Ridge boots. More on the results later. I think the short break-in period, was a result of my hiking in warmer temperatures.  To read more please click here.
