    Time for new hiking boots - what brand/model would you recommend?

    My old Merrell ones are coming apart, but they lasted ages and went through hell with me.
    Based on that, I thought of getting another pair of Merrells, but discovered that recent online reviews reveal that Merrell's standards have dropped drastically.
    Any advice?

    I really like Five Tens.  They have a wide toe box, which I need and they last quite a long time.  I hike often and have probably put 150 hard miles on the pair I got this spring, other than wear on the laces they look pretty good.  My brother swears by Vasques, so you might check those out too.

    I have some called Trezeta (Italian). I bought these for a trip to Scotland but now have worn them daily for the last 6 years in Brazil. They handle the slopes on sand dunes without any problems. I always feel sure footed in them. They also provide great ankle support as well. Although our temperature is 30 degrees (87F) year round, my feet are always dry and comfortable.
