Hiking boots - Comfort and durability

I'm a male looking for new hiking boots for treking the great West.  My last set of boots from REI were Oboz.  While I like the comfort they dont appear to be very durable as boots I've owned in the past.  Since I'm not able to visit a retail store, any recommendations of brands that provide similar comfort with perhaps beter durability.  Thx.

@gDan Thanks for reaching out!

Is there any chance you'd be interested in chatting with one of our footwear experts in the next day or so to help you pick new boots? We're working in new ways, and connecting our community members directly with an employee (over the phone, of course) is one of those ways, so let us know! And if not, we'll certainly aim to help you through messages here in the community!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

I’m also interested in chatting with a footwear expert on a pair of hiking boots for myself and my son. What are next steps?
