    I have a pair of Vasque that served me well and kept me nice and dry very far north in the Canadian wilderness.

    I recently picked up a set of Salomon GTX 4Dís that are comfy but still too early to write a verdict on them.

    So far so good on the Solomon boots.

    I've gotten mostly Merrell's, still have a pair of Moabs, and also had good luck a couple years ago with a pair of Lowa Renegades.

    Currently wearing Keen mid Durand--I ended up liking these better than the Lowas for mountain hiking and trail hiking in the wet PNW. Because they are mid and waterproof, which is good in in my area, they might be a bit overkill and hot for the OP in FL. For that, I guess I'd find a pair of waterproof regular-height Merrells that you like.

    They had a quality problem and then they changed some things and the quality has improved.

    While I think it could be a little better they are not falling apart from stepping on a rock a couple of times.

    For lightweight, more shoe style hiking footwear, I like Salomon. I have the X-Ultras IIRC. Good quality, lightweight nice and knobby tread.

    For heavy boots, though not cheap and not heavy but they are super tough are my Asolos 200 GVs. Goretex, have ability to hook crampons on. Tough sole. They feel great. I would spend the money again when (if) my current pair wears out.

    This. I love my Salomons. I also use the x-ultras for light hiking and the Quests for backpacking/difficult terrain hiking. They're both the gortex versions. I've been very happy with the comfort and durability of both. I used to just rock a single pair of the x-ultra mids, which were great as well, but I finally wore them out.
