I am also looking for the same, any feedback appreciated.

Size 10-11 (depends on brands)
Budget : 100$ (Up to 150$, if quality is awesome and good warranty and people say they last 5+ years...)
Use : 2-3 days hiking trips during 3-seasons (No need for -40C boots, I'll get winter ones later if needed)

I checked brands (Merell, MEC, Salomon), as well as most of the websites, it's so hard to get consistent reviews from websites and buyers.
I don't know which ones are good brands, and also what kind of waterproof? Any is good or should I aim for gore tex?
I have shoes already, looking for boots for ankle protection.
Also good if you find online deals, but since size is very important for hiking boots, I would try in other shop first before buying online.

Is my budget too cheap?

try atmosphere/sportscheck as they have alot of boot sales in store (same as online). the type of hiking boots would depends on your needs (types of hiking) and feet type. if you have wide feet, i recommend Keens as they are very roomy even in regular size. there are however some complains about Keen traction rubber on some models aren't as good as other similar brand models. there are usually some sale on decent hiking boots.

Last Hunt has a bunch of waterproof hiking boots on sale, but final sale so if it doesn't fit then you can't return it. In your size they only have this model left

I recently bought the Sorel Madison hiker based on their size chart (without trying it on at any store) and it fits way too big. When I pulled out the sole to measure it with a ruler, it was a full cm longer than their chart listing. I have to email Sorel about it to see what they have to say.

I have one really good pair of Salomon gore tex boots that are a few years old and still wearing great in the snow and a bit of rain.

Check out Eddie Bauer's canadian website as well.
