Purchased these boots for a hunting trip to Kodiak. Way more than I normally would spend on a boot, but worth every penny. Required very little break-in time. These are heavy boots, but the great arch and ankle support make it worth it. We hiked up very steep terrain for 9 hours a day, for 5 days. This included deep, wet marshy areas where I was sinking up above my ankle. I did have on Kuiu gaiters to help keep out the water. My feet stayed dry, and the inside of the boots were completely dry. We were in a heated cabin at night so the outside of the boots were able to dry each night.

I live and work in 2 pairs (I alternate them) of 15 year old WESCO Firestormers. I have done quite a bit of backpacking and light mountaineering in a 20 year old pair of Gronells (6"). I do all the maintenance that is appropriate replace / repair soles, heels, hooks, eyelets, insoles, etc. My Gronells look like they were made by the same cobbler as my Kenetrek MEs. The Gronells are shorter and uninsulated but still outweigh the Kenetreks by several ounces. The main difference is the weight of the leather. The leather on the Mountain Extremes is much thinner than on any of the other boots mentioned. This results in a boot that is much easier to break in. It also results in a boot that is less supportive and less water resistant. Thicker leather holds more wax. I hunted pigs and deer at Fort Benning in 2015 wearing my WESCOs (one pair only) and the leather was dry after five days. I just returned from an eleven day Kodiak hunt where I wore my MEs where the leather was wet in four days. The were quite cold when wet. On both hunts my boots were more in the water than out. On the Kodiak hunt I wore Swiss army issue gaiters (the best); on the pig hunt I bloused my pants. On Kodiak I was usually under a moderately heavy pack. Both my WESCOs and my Gronells have served me better under a load.

My Kodiak hunting partner wore a 5 year old pair of Mountain Extremes. He also is an equipment maintenance stickler. He declared that his boots are in their last year of service. The leather is cracking in the flex areas and the rand is starting to separate. To gauge how much he's worn them, the original sole is about half gone.

In summary, this is not a bad boot if you are in the market for a very lightweight hunting boot and the extreme conditions you anticipate don't include a lot of water or a heavy pack. I would not expect theseto do heavy duty jobs as well as heavy duty boots. If I had the opportunity to trade my Mountain Extremes in for a pair of Mountain Guides, I'd do so.

Awesome boots

By 

from Albany Oregon

I went elk hunting in the High Cascades in Oregon and I hiked around thirty mile in wet and 12" of snow. They were great from day one dry and comfortable and worth every penny.

The most expensive hunting boot doesn't deliver

By 

from Divide, MT

Wore these boots a lot all over the world probably have around 200 miles in the cause blisters and cramping like you would not believe still have the problem after all the miles, and terrible customer service and warranty. It would be wise to find another boot I would expect more from the most expensive hunting boot.

They leak

By 

from Western washington

They leaked after 2 seasons. I sent them back and they insisted there was no problem. I put them on the shelf for a year then put them back on the following season. They leaked, again. I sent them back again and this time they found the leak. Kenetrek repaired them but we will see if it lasts. I'm into these things around $500 from all the shipping costs. If they leak again I'll burn them!!

I will say the ankle support, traction, and weight of the boot is 5-stars. But I need dry feet. Western Washington is wet.

Worst boots ever!

By 

from Las Vegas

The only thing good about these boots is they are built like Fort Knox. But they are heavy, cause horrific blisters. I have over 300 miles on these boots and they still cause blisters. Several friends bought them at the same boot sale and they quit wearing them, same problems. If you hunt in a blind, tree stand or flat terrain by them. But if you hunt in wicked steep terrain miles from your vehicle, look for another boot!

Kenetrek Mountain Extreme Hunting Boots

By 

from Poulsbo, WA

I purchased the Mountain extreme 400 they broke in easily for me. I used them all of 2014 in some hardscrabble very wet terrain and I liked them so much that I bought a non insulated pair for early season hunting. My conclusion is they are worth every penny I paid.

Kenetrek Mountain Extreme Hunting Boots

By 

from Sacramento, CA

Site Member

The first pair would produce blisters after about 1 mile, every time. Used plenty of moleskin. After speaking with Kenetrek I returned them for a pair 1/2" size smaller. This was after a year of use. Kenetrek exchanged for no charge. The new 1/2 " size smaller fit perfectly, no blisters. Best boot I have ever worn. Awesome customer service, they have a customer for life.

Kenetrek Mountain Extreme Hunting Boots

By 

from Silverdale, DC

Site Member

I picked these boots up after two years of debating the purchase. Until I started walking around in them, I had no idea what I was missing out on for so long. They fit like a glove and the break-in is going extremely well. Got 5 miles on them already and only had them a week. The support is second to none, I am not even sure I will need a performance insole. If you have been on the fence, just go for it you won't regret it.
