I have been using Garmont T8's for a while & really like them. They work straight from the box & do exactly what they say they do. http://www.kitbag.com.au/products/T8-Garmont-Multi-Terrain-Combat-Boot.html
I've leather boots made for walking and light climbing.
It's in Europe a fameous brand, made in Germany and called Meindl Borneo.
They got Vibram shock absorbing soles and are really great in warm and also cold conditions.
Walked twice in Australia with those boots, also using them in European winter.

while out 4wdriving shooting and camping i wear my trusty oliver AT's steel cap work boots they are super comfortable
with lots of support and my feet are very used to them (that happens when you wear em all day everyday) they are also quite water proof
and my socks (explorers) never get wet until the water comes in the top of the boot. having said all that a good pair of hunting boots
is high on the list for hiking general hunting and backpack hunting.
