My feet tend to sweat quite a bit and I do most of my backpacking in the Sierras which is pretty dry. My average trips are in the 30-50 mile range and I carry between 30-40lbs. Definitely not looking to use a day hiker like the Merrell Ventilator. Does anyone have a recommendation for a non gore-tex backpacking boot?

I thought maybe the Ganda could be used as a backpacking boot but not sure if anyone has used it primarily that way. Any advice is hugely appreciated!

I've used these on multiday hikes with loads in the Sierra and they were as stable and supportive as many hiking boots I've used in the past but they were significantly lighter and more versatile.
