Lowa Renegade GTX Mid

MSRP: $220


It’s easy to see why the Renegade is Lowa’s most popular boot; we appreciated the lighter, sleeker profile and loved the support provided. They are comfortable enough for everyday wear, while just what you need for a weekend backpacking trip into the bush.


Muck Boots Woody EX Pro

MSRP: $239.95


Offering comfort, support and stability, along with being waterproof and providing great traction, these boots were dragged along all over the state last year, as they’re the perfect companions for everything from barbecuing in the backyard to weekend ATV jaunts to a remote float trip in western Alaska.



Kamik Cody Boot

MSRP: $160


With a waterproof top-grain leather upper and 1000 denier nylon underlay were just right for our winter ice-fishing excursions. The moisture-wicking lining was an especially favored touch, particularly on more active days.


Korkers Snow Jack Boot

MSRP: $169.99


A comfortable, quality boot that we found perfect for ice fishing, as they’re rated to -35 degrees plus feature an interchangeable studded sole, which seemed a far better option than the traditional slip-on cleats.


Vasque Talus UltraDry Boot

MSRP: $149.95


These boots are lightweight at only 2.9 ounces, completely waterproof and feature a sole that offers good traction. It did not take much to break in these boots, making them an everyday option right out of the box.


Vasque Velocity 2.0 GTX

MSRP: $119.95


The second-generation Velocity was made to do it all, and we certainly didn’t find anything to dispute that claim. We tested the classic trail-running shoe and found it to have great stability, traction and all-day comfort.


Bogs Men’s Classic Mid Boots

MSRP: $96


A classic becomes a classic for a reason, and we loved having these easy-on/easy-off boots around camp this year. Versatile and waterproof, they’re good for any occasion in the Alaska outdoors.


Muck Boots Terrain

MSRP: $244.95-$254.95


Billed as the first rubber boot for all-terrain enthusiasts, the Terrain is cradled in a micro-fleece liner that absorbs moisture, keeping ATV riders and snowmachiners warm and dry through temperatures beginning with the sub-zero. Additionally, the boot features a durable and lightweight rubber outsole, protective rubber overlays and a reinforced ankle area.


Keen Bailey Slip-On

MSRP: $110


Slide-on shoes that are stable, comfortable, waterproof and practical. Fly in them for your lodge trip and use to run from your cabin to the main lodge or wear them to the fishing grounds before you change into waders. We recommend sizing a half-size larger because of a snug fit.
