Form Fitting Traction

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Treksta Mid's hug my feet more than any hiking shoes/boots I've worn during my 25+ years hiking & backpacking. When I first put these on I thought I'd have to return them because I felt some discomfort at the back of the heel where the harder material of the heel cup meets the softer material of the upper. However, this became less of an issue as I walked around in them, and I put them to the test in some pretty rugged terrain in the Linville Gorge & Wilson Creek wilderness areas in the mountains of North Carolina. I bought these as dayhikers but ended up using them on overnighters with a 30 pound pack, and my feet (as well as the shoes) held up just fine. I wear size 12 and my feet are average width & volume. My arches are down a little, but I don't pronate. A couple years ago I had pain from plantar fasciitis and have since worn Superfeet in my heavier backpacking boots, but not in the Trekstas.

These shoes aren't comfy for lounging around in due to the form-fitting "nest fit" technology (I could always feel them "on" even moreso than my leather backpacking boots) but the snug (not cramped) fit gave me plenty of traction & confidence on the trail and a little extra spring in my step (I'm 55 and about 30 lbs heavier than I should be).

There's a little extra room at the front of the big toe, which is better than not enough. The waterproof membrane is still intact after a week of hard hiking in sometimes wet condtions. One quibble is the loop provided at the top of the heel for pulling the shoes on, and this is something I've encountered with other footwear: why do they make the loop too small for a man to put his finger through it?

Awesome shoe

I purchased my boots 6 months ago and have nothing but praise for them. I have hiked 20 miles in the whites and 12 in Vermont plus 90 in the Rockies on them. The boots did not give me a single blister. The only issue was minor foot fatigue after a full day in 90 plus temps. My solution was to change my socks. A great cross between a heavy boot and a trail runner.

Hype

I bought these boots based mostly on the Backpacker Mag hype but I would like send a cautionary message to anyone looking at these boots. The fit is unbeatable, glove-like and very comfortable out of the box. After my first hike my heels were a bloody mess. There is a vertical row of stitching right in the center of the inside of the heel pocket of the boots and it wrecked havoc on my heels. I contacted TrekSta and they advised punching out the heels, which I did, but to no avail. The shredding continued. On my tenth or so hike in these, the material on the outside above my two smallest toes (which had been showing signs of tearing on both boots) blew out leaving a one inch rent across the fabric and the rubberish material of the rand. I have contacted TrekSta again and we will see how they respond. Proceed with caution my friends...

Responded on

Initially I too had been worried by the stitching at the back of the heel and also by the ankle collar which at first had been irritating. For my first few short hikes I used a few wraps of an ace bandage to avoid discomfort and thereafter had no problems. Last summer, the boots performed remarkably on my 200+-mile John Muir Trail hike although both boots were punctured by rocks on the sides of the toes. Treksta replaced the boots without fuss and without charge. A few days ago, I completed the Yosemite-Tahoe Trail with the replacement boots the toe-ends of which I had pretreated with Freesole. Again, wearing only very thin polyester socks, the boots performed remarkably and this time were not punctured. Since beginning to use large-volume custom-made orthotics several years ago, these are the first boots I've been able to wear comfortably.
