I agree 100% with oweng = yowies are the way to go.

You can even run in them with 20kg pack & walk up slopes beyond x country ski gradient. They come in 2 sizes one for up to 80 to 100Kg and one for 120 kg load. The Aust CSIRO guys use them in the Antarctic. Make sure your boots fit snuggly = if loose @ heel as lots of friction on upwards movement at back = after 10km + = can chafe. The "spring loaded" version = is a little better in the forward direction but costs more & doesn't have the "walk in any direction" freedom.
