It’s not often a boot this sturdy goes on sale for a price this low. The Wind River III’s nubuck-and-textile upper and TPU toecap offer superb protection in rough terrain (“You feel like you can kick down a door,” one tester says), but it strides well, too. Thick, high-cut ankle padding and a thick EVA midsole offer comfort for long miles and under multiday loads. Get the Wind River III for $120 (42 percent off) in both men’s and women’s versions at REI.
