I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had trouble finding hiking boots with a mix of comfort and weight that works for fairly heavy duty walking such as off-trail backpacking, fourteener climbs and that sort of thing. The trail is calling now that my knee issue is fading to a distant memory, but what to use? After a bit of searching I’m picking these Scarpa ZG40s. They’re still a little hot due to the Gortex and plastic around the toe area, but they’re much more comfortable than the Charmoz GTX that I used last season. Recommended so far. Long term testing now in progress.
