Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a hiking shoe and a hiking boot?
Generally speaking, a hiking shoe is softer and more flexible than a hiking boot. Hiking shoes also don't have as much ankle support, which can be a negative if you are backpacking long distances with a heavy pack. Hiking shoes are best used as single-day adventure shoes or for a quick overnight adventure. Hiking boots are larger, sturdier and able to handle more abuse. Hiking shoes also tend to be a little cheaper than hiking boots.
Are Hiking Boots necessary?
The answer, of course, depends on where you are going. A short hike on an established trail doesn't necessarily require hiking boots. However, the support, especially if you have foot pronation, or flat feet, can provide a nice break for your knees. Hiking footwear is also beneficial if you're carrying a large amount of weight because they help stabilize the lateral rotating motion of your feet. Waterproof boots are especially useful if you’re dealing with wet weather or crossing snowfields.
