+1 on the Kennentrek's. Great boot. There a little tight for stirrups, but I know guys that where them every day they are so comfortable.

I have tried alot of boots in the field and so far the best boot i have found to date are the Zamberlands. I own both the tall pair and the short pair and love them both. Previously I owned the kenetreks and actually gave them to a friend because they were so uncomfortable. Before that I bought a pair of lowas but they fell apart within 6 months. I have had these zamberlands for a year and a half so far and I put them to use every weeknd cant beat these boots.

Lowa sheep hunter gtx. I have used them on two dall sheep hunts in Alaska. Best boot I have used while carrying a heavy pack. I think the type of boot is relative to the amount of weight you will carry and the type of mountain terrain. These things are designed to support you with heavy weight and in some nasty steep country.

I love me and will use em until they fall apart. Of course, with the current price tag, you have to!!!

A number of good brands listed above. People's feet are unique enough that what may be a great boot for one might not be so for another. The best I've found for my feet are Vasque's. Comfortable, easily broke in, and durable.
