View Full Version : What Boots For Use With Packs?

What types of boots do folks here use when carrying backpacks?
Do you need or suggest a full leather model in order to give your feet support when carrying a backpack?
Anyone here have any idea on who is the U.S. distributor for RAICHLE (Swiss) boots in U.S.A.?

I use Lowa Trekkers, which are a full leather boot. I have a set of lightweight Montrail hikers as well. The Lowas are by far the best boots I've ever owned. I could walk for weeks in the Lowas with Pointman. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

try here (http://www.life-link.com/) Raichle lists them as their US distributer

Thanks Jesse!
I checked with them..no longer.
Now Raichle says that U.S. distributor is CLIMB HIGH..no pics of Raichle on their site yet though!
