GOHUNT Stiffness Scale Mountain Guide Non-Insulated - Flex 4
Flex 1 Built for light and fast trekking. Think of your favorite trail running shoes, but capable of rocky demanding terrain.
Flex 2 Flexible enough that they offer out-of-the-box comfort but can handle miles of rocky terrain. Perfectly suited for mild to moderate mule deer, elk, and antelope country.
Flex 3 Ideally suited for mountain hunts with moderate to steep technical terrain where more rigidity is required. Some break-in time required but will likely become your favorite do everything hunting boots.
Flex 4 Best suited for hunts at or above timberline where the terrain gets steep. Flexible enough that it can handle miles of comfortable climbing but stiff enough to offer support and rigidity with a heavy pack.
Flex 5 The stiffest boot options, best for alpine hunting and mountaineering. Sheep hunting, mountain goat, and the toughest of elk and deer terrain.


  • Start by collecting a few things from around your house, including a yardstick or ruler, a soft tailor’s tape or paper tape, a piece of cardboard or printer paper, and a pen.

  • Draw a 90° angle on the cardboard or paper using the yardstick or ruler. The lines should be long enough so that your longest toe touches the horizontal line and the widest point of your foot touches the vertical line.

  • Ensure that you’re wearing your hunting socks while taking these measurements. Stand on the paper or cardboard with your feet shoulder-width apart and place your full weight on both feet.

  • Have a second person mark where your heel and the widest part of your foot lands on the cardboard or paper. Ensure that you’re keeping the pen vertical when making your marks. Leaning the pen inward or outward against your foot will skew your measurements.

  • Place the edge of the tailor’s tape on the straight line and measure the widest and longest point of each foot down to 1/10th of a centimeter.

  • Add both length measurements together and divide them by two. This is your length measurement.

  • Add both width measurements together and divide them by two. This is your width measurement.

  • Record your measurements and refer to the GOHUNT Sizing Guide and Staff Reviews to find the right boot size for your foot profile.


  • Measure your feet with the socks you intend to wear in the field.

  • Measure your feet later in the day. Your feet tend to swell slightly as the day progresses.

  • The arch and heel of your foot should feel snug but not tight. Your heel should feel secure in the heel pocket. If your heel lifts up when you step, make sure the lacing is not too loose.

  • Your toes should not touch the front of the boot. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes. When you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is without your toes hitting.

  • If you're unable to cinch the boot tight enough to prevent heel slip or it allows your toes to touch the end of the boot, you will have a hard time with a heavy pack on steep downhill descents and you’ll want to size up.

  • Proper boot care can significantly extend the lifespan of your boots. Leather boots, in particular, need to be cared for after heavy use. If your boots are wet and covered in dirt, we recommend cleaning them. If you’re not going to clean your boots, you should still allow your boots to air dry after each use.

  • Remove your insoles and laces after each use. This will open up your boots and allow them to air out. Even if your boots don’t get wet, they will naturally absorb moisture from your feet, especially on multi-day trips. Insoles and laces can be hand-washed in cold water and set out to air dry.

  • Using a boot brush and warm water, remove the dirt from your boots. The warm water will open up the pores of the boot and allow you to thoroughly clean them.

  • For leather boots, you’ll want to recondition the leather after cleaning them with warm water in order for them to remain water-repellant. Applying a waterproofing agent to the damp leather will reclose the pores that were opened up during cleaning. Once you’ve reconditioned your boots, water should bead up when gently poured over the leather.

  • Allow your boots to air dry. Do not use a heat source to dry your boots. The heat could cause the leather to shrink or become brittle, increasing the chances of irreparable rips or creases.

  • Store your boots in a cool and dry place to prevent mildew. We recommend packing a newspaper in the toe box of wet boots to help absorb the moisture and maintain the boots’ shape during the drying process.

  • Take your boots to a knowledgeable cobbler for repairs.


  • For a general-purpose waterproofing product, the GOHUNT staff has found that Granger or Nikwax Waterproofing performs the best.

  • Re-apply this product as necessary or after every use in severe conditions.

  • Please refrain from using beeswax, animal fats, or petroleum-based products on your boots, as these products will void some manufacturer warranties.

  • *Please note that these products may darken the color of any leather.


  • We recommend treating the leather on your Gore-Tex® boots the same as you would on any other leather boot.

  • The Gore-Tex® lining creates a waterproof/breathable membrane on the inside of the boot, but leather uppers still need to be cared for.

  • The durable waterproofness of the Gore-Tex® membrane is not affected by leather conditioners, silicone, oil, or shoe polish.

Didn’t want to write a review until I had the boots for a while and put some miles on them. Wore them for work for a month or so hiking and they were comfortable and supportive I actually really liked them, but then the rubber rand and soles started to seperate. I emailed kenetrek and they said I would have to ship them out and they would evaluate them so see if they were under warranty. They emailed back said they’d fix them and it would take 6-8 weeks. Six weeks went by and I received my boots back to find that the repairs that took 6 weeks was a shitty glue job. They didn’t resole the boots, didn’t tell me the problem just shipped them back with some sort of glue they tried to stick the rubber back together, as if that wasn’t bad enough they didn’t even try to clean the mess they made. Extremely disappointed since I paid so much for these boots I don’t expect them to last as the problem was never solved specially since I’ve only wore them a total of a month. Save your money my crispis have made it through a few hunting seasons and still going strong.

Kenetrek Mountain Guide NI Boots

It's been almost a month ago I purchased these boots. Almost too early to write a good review. I have 15 hounds that I run almost every day in the steep 45 degree mountain slopes of Southwest Virginia. I really like the taller heel and the thread on the sole for the traction that it gives me,not to mention the ankle support the boot provides. I did replace the insoles with a pair of Superfeet Green because of their coolness during the summer months. This is a carry over from my mountain bike racing and trail running days. I will replace the originals when cold weather returns. The waterproof membrane doesn't sweat your feet like gortex does. Presently, I have to give these boots 5 stars and thumbs-up. The other popular name brand boots only last me about 1 year, so why not spend a little more for a pair that are supposed to last longer. I will submit a follow up review a little later in v the season.

The Cadilac of boots

This has, admittedly, been my first real pair of hunting boots. I have worn some type of leather boot since working construction in high school (1996), to the Army, and now as a Deputy Sheriff. From the first day I put these bad boys on I knew I had been missing out on quality I never knew existed. I always saw there were high dollar boots out there, but never pulled the trigger on them thinking it was just hype.

These boots, even during break in, felt comfortable and seemed to help propel me forward. They were just the right amount of stiffness in the sole and the ankle support is great which was the main reason for buying this specific model. I hunt central California, so it's been a hot one and the boots let my feet breath a lot better than I thought they would. I cannot say enough good about these boots. I would even feel comfortable using these as an every day hiking boot. You definitely get your money's worth!

Awesome boots.

I love my Kenetrek boots. I just used them all weekend hunting elk. My ankles were supported and the boots are light and comfortable. If you want great boots, get you some Kenetrek boots.
