Nobody really enjoys the slick conditions that are a part of getting around during winter, but with Icebug’s Read more >>
Stabil Stabilicers Run
Mike England
Around here, running season never ends—at least not for fanatics, and those of us who want to stave off winter flab. But hikers don’t quit, either, and the trails get hard and slick, making cleats a necessity. Read more >>
Schnee's Mission Boot
Chris McCarthy

Lowa, Zephyr, Outside Bozeman, footwear, lowa boots

Hi-Tec Waimea Falls
Melissa Doar
Rarely does a product come along whereby I find myself secretly hoping for the end of ski season in exchange for warmer temps. The super-comfy Hi-Tec Waimea Falls casual sandals actually had me contemplating such nonsense. Read more >>
Rockport Trail Technique

I walk a lot—around town and in the mountains—and I have struggled for years to find durable and practical shoes that fit my wide foot and also fit a modest budget. Thanks to the Rockport Trail Technique, I have to look no further. Read more >>
Oboz Madison Boots
Stoops, Kira
These comfy-cute snow boots belie a beastly survival instinct. I jumped into ankle-deep half-frozen puddles, and watched the water just roll off. Trekking up snowy, wet trails, I couldn’t keep them dirty. Icy concrete? No slipping. Read more >>
Howlett, David

LOWA Phoenix
Sipes, Terri
Having spent most of the past decade hiking in sandals, I was a bit skeptical of a trekking shoe. I thought they’d be heavy, stiff, and cause damage to my feet. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised, as the Phoenix GTX Lo from LOWA definitely are not my mother’s hiking shoes. Read more >>

England, Mike
