Why We Like The Wildfire Edge GTX Mid Hiking Boot

Some of the best climbs are the hardest to get to. So, when scree-fields, technical traverses, and steep mountain terrain are on the docket, we turn to the Wildfire Edge GTX Mid Hiking Boots. Their unique design lets us adjust them to a more precise climbing fit when scrambling and climbing, while still maintaining the comfort and flex we need for long hikes. Plus, the GORE-TEX membrane keeps your feet dry should unexpected weather interrupt the adventure.

I'd give 4* for the discounted price

I got it for $110 and for that price it's pretty good. GORE-TEX works as good as expected, the sole grip is trustworthy but the shoes themselves are not that comfortable. Velcro's placement is far from being perfect, I almost always get my socks stuck with it first unless I specifically put it aside when putting boots on. Also the upper part of the heel is very rigid, often feels uncomfortable during the steep ascent. Not sure what is the season for these boots - definitely not for summer hikes, but in 0 Celsius fall hikes it's still a bit too warm, socks and feet are a bit moist after the hike. In lower temps, like -5-10 feet get cold almost instantly the moment you stop moving. Pretty controversial boots, for this price I kept it, but for the next ones I'll look into Merrel or something. By the way, my $50 Qeuchua boots are also much more comfortable, but they unfortunately lack membrane that's any good. My regular size is 10-10.5, I got these in 11

One of my favorites for speedy hikes. The gaiter system is only reason not a 10/10. I feel that could be better.

Capable and Durable.

Awesome product, seriously durable and capable gear. I'm extremely hard on my equipment and use these boots for work and outdoor recreation. I have a pair of Mid Alp Trainers that I've had for the past three years and wear them almost every day. The only thing I've had to replace were the laces. I won't wear anything else as far as these boots go.

Awesome durability.

Awesome product. I put my gear through serious abusive conditions in mountainous terrain. Your product has always held up great. I have a pair of Mid Alp Trainers going on three years and have a lot of miles on them. They're still going strong. I've only had to switch out the laces.

Fits tight first few wears but loosens after that.

Comfortable out of the box

Use them almost daily as duty field boots. Comfortable and durable. Fits great for those with narrow feet.

Absolutely Phenomenal

Worn them for over 2 years now. Worn them casually but mostly as a police duty boot. They are light but offer great protection. Been in downpours and puddles and stayed bone dry. With a good pair of socks they'll do great in the snow as long as you're moving a bit. After 2 years they are holding up wonderfully. They do run small.

Phenomenal Boots

I've had these boots for a little over a year at this point and only wore them intermittently for short periods of time. That was until I took a trip to Iceland a month ago and got ALOT of hiking in. These boots saved my feet from the rough terrain out there and always stayed comfy and dry. I took them through waterfalls, slippery rocks and glaciers and had dry feet the whole time and not a single slip. I would highly recommend a pair of these to anyone looking for a solid boot.

👍

Love the boots. They are comfortable, especially in the toe box and ankle. I like the lacing system as well. I wear them all day, on every shift that I’m on patrol. I’ll even choose them when I’m off of work Frequently. I’m heavy, especially with my 35lbs of extra gear on so the soles are worn out from prolonged use. I’m about to buy another pair now.
