Industry Reviews

  • Men's Health - Full Review 
    • 'Best Backpacking Boot'
    • 'This is the best outdoor gear to give (or receive) this holiday season'
    • 'these boots are ready for any terrain'
  • Kelsea Krawetz, BackPackGearTest - Full Review
    • 'I am very satisfied with the ankle support.  There were numerous times I was stepping on roots to avoid mud pits and my ankles failed me.  I would slip right into the muddy mess, but luckily my boots would not allow full rotation of my ankles, so I never got a sprain!' 
    • 'These boots also did a great job on the scramble.  Although they are not mountaineering boot and don’t have a climbing shoe sole, they gripped the rock well through the chimney feature.  The chimney was a little snowy and icy, so foot placement was key to staying safe.  These shoes made me feel secure and stable in these conditions.'
  • Marina Batzke, BackPackGearTest - Full Review 
    • 'I received the Mishmi Takin Kameng hiking boots on a Thursday, and hiked up steep 5620 ft (1713 m) over 5 miles (8 km) on Saturday. I never got a blister despite the steep, relentlessly climbing trail.'
    • 'I have really enjoyed wearing the Mishmi Takin Kameng Mid hiking boots: they are my primary pair of boots right now.'
    • 'The boots provided good stability and foot support.'
  • Theresa Lawrence, BackPackGearTest - Full Review
      • 'I have found the tread on these boots to grip really well. I hiked on a lot of ice, slush, and snow and did not slip at all. At one point on an ice coated trail, I thought about putting on my trail spikes, but just didn't need to as I wasn't slipping.'
      • 'What I have found to be noticeable is how light they are on my feet, which makes me feel more agile without losing out on ankle support'
      • 'Conditions were sufficiently wet to test out the water-proofness of the eVent material. The results were confidently water-proof. At no point on any trip did I have wet feet. My feet stayed warm even on the-16 C (3 F), sub-freezing day.'
    • Sanjay Rawal, Fit Wild 
      • 'These boots are now my favorite pair of footwear.'
      • 'They weren’t exactly boat-wear, but were so comfortable for mixed terrain: from rocky riverbanks to muddy redwood forests, they allowed me to move seamlessly between environments.'
