- Walking boot recommendations…
I’m not a fan of Goretex lined boots. It’s not an application where goretex is needed, it is too prone to failure in my own direct experience. I had two pairs of goretex lined boots fail in a row. When that happens the boot gets wet, and by some magic procedure the water gets in but not out. Plus once wet they take longer to dry out – a problem on multiday trips when you can’t carry wads of newspaper to dry them out etc. (drying boots with direct heat is always a bad idea).
I go with plain leather boots, I’ve got a pair of Zamberlans for three season use at the moment. Well cared for, dried slowly and treated with G-wax my feet are nearly always dry unless the boot is over topped. Goretex is a barrier to breathability compared to traditional materials – boots without a membrane are always more comfortable.Posted 7 years ago
