Wolverine Sentinel Hiking Boots

The Sentinel hiking boots were provided by Wolverine for review purposes.

The Sentinel are made in USA, with Horween leather uppers, Vibram outsoles, and Gore-Tex waterproof membrane lining.  The Sentinel comes in widths EW and M in men’s sizes 7 to 12 in half sizes and 13 and 14.  The available color is: Brown.  In my experience, being able to pick a width for any shoe has become the exception.  To read more.

 

Ready for Some Hiking?

I recently received a pair of Wolverine Sierra mid-cut trail hikers for review purposes.  These hikers have some very interesting features, that I’ve never seen before.  Do you walk on the inside or outside of your foot?   They have you covered!  Need a little extra cushion?   Got it!  How about a firmer feel?  Got it!  How do they do that all in one hiker?  Well, read the review and find out!

Wolverine Compass Boot

I would consider the Wolverine Compass a mid-weight hiking boot.  They are lighter and more flexible than full on hiking boots but offer more support than a trail runner type shoe.  The uppers are a mixture of nubuck leather and some kind of synthetic materiel listed as mesh in the specifications.  The boots feature a GORE-TEX membrane for wet conditions. Of course with the top of the boots at only 5.5 inches high, I will still need to be careful not to get water over the tops of the boots. To read the rest of the review click here.

Recently I spent a week in the Franconia Notch area of New Hampshire. The weather was great with rain only for half a day. I wore the boots whenever I went hiking and they provided excellent traction on the rocks. I encountered wet and muddy areas which also were not a problem. To read more.

KEEN Trailhead Pyrenees Boots

Review by Arnie P

The Keen Pyrenees boot is part of the Keen Trailhead family. At first glance I thought I was looking at a boot from my childhood when all boots were leather. The leather is the only aspect that is the same. The leather is brown and has a very soft feel and is pliable to the touch. The foot bed is removable. The toes area is well protected which I appreciate because I have had many toe nail blood blisters in the past.   To read more.
