Reliable support, legendary toughness.
From the steep cirques of Utah's Wasatch Range to mossy, fern-lined trails of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, the Montrail Men's Sierravada Mid OutDry Hiking Boot delivers smooth-wearing stability for conquering rugged terrain and hiking trails. This mid-height hiker provides extra ankle support over standard hiking shoes, making it ideal for long-distance treks and backpacking trips deep into the wilderness. Breathable synthetic uppers feature leather reinforcements for added abrasion-resistance when you're bushwhacking through thick vegetation and blazing across rough, rock-strewn trails.
The OutDry waterproof, breathable membrane keeps your feet pleasantly dry as you cross shallow streams and trek through rain-soaked forests. FluidFoam midsole cushioning promotes responsive shock-absorption for crossing demanding stretches of trail. And because it's home on rugged terrain, the full-length rubber sole utilizes Montrail's TrailShield to protect your feet from abrasive ground and sharp stones without inhibiting flexibility or sacrificing overall grip.

I'll be honest this is my first pair of hiking boots because normally I buy hiking shoes since I'm not usually doing more than day hikes. When I made the purchase I really had three things in mind I needed out of this boot. The first was breathability. The main reason I avoid boots of any sort is because they don't allow my feet to breath, in which case my feet heat up while I'm out and about and I'm generally miserable until I can get home and rip them off. These boots however did a great job of keeping my feet cool, but with one caveat I noticed that you have to be moving for them to continually vent. The second, was support. They have this really nice feature in the heal that help give you leverage as you are walking and acts almost as a spring to help you push off, which at first feels a bit odd, but by 5 minutes in you don't even notice the awkward pressure on your heal. Third was grip, lets face it that any hiking boot that doesn't do this probably shouldn't be a hiking boot and this boot did not disappoint.
