Oboz Beartooth

BEST FOR: Backpacking. THE TEST: If you’ve got big plans and a fancy new multi-day backpack, you’d be wise to complete the package with a burly, high-cut, waterproof-breathable boot like the Beartooth. With reinforced nubuck uppers, stainless-steel hardware for the laces, and a meaty, self-cleaning lugged sole, the Beartooth is a monster truck of a boot. Our favorite feature was the webbing strap that connects the heel cup to the laces, which cinched our heels into the back of the boot for a locked-in feel and zero blisters. THE VERDICT: It’s hard to imagine needing beefier boots than these. Likewise, it’s hard to imagine them ever wearing out. 2 lbs
