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!
