My Morrell boots had another couple hundred miles put on them this summer from practice hikes, campouts, and two weeks backpacking in Wyoming.
There's a wide range of boot brands to choose from and it can be challenging to find the best one for you. The best thing to do is go to a store and try on a wide range of brands. I especially like the Rocky boots and am thinking of adding those to my birthday list.
My current boots have a real nice Philmont brand on them, but since I'll be going there again next summer, maybe I can brand a fresh pair of hiking boots.
If you do need new boots, be sure to purchase them well before your hike so you have plenty of time to get your feet used to them. Many boots don't really need much breaking-in time these days, but your feet do need to get used to the fit and extra weight.
