Carrying a pack filled with all your backcountry necessities is one of life's simple pleasures, but the longer your stay in the woods, the heavier your pack gets. That’s why the most important purchase you can make when planning your trip is a pair of stable hiking boots that will not just support the weight of your pack, but can also keep your ankles and feet protected.
Reduce your chances of injury, support your back and arches, and ensure good aeration with hiking boots designed for hardcore adventurers like you. Nothing is worse than developing blisters or slipping due to poor sole design, which is why we only carry the top brands in hiking boots and hiking accessories. Whether you want waterproof materials that will take you through river crossings, or advanced torsional stability that’s incorporated into the design, you’ll find it all here.
Finding the Perfect Pair of Hiking Boots
Choose from long-standing heritage boot manufacturers like Asolo, Vasque, and La Sportiva for your men's hiking boots so your time in the backcountry is spent in awe, not in pain. Look to options in Oboz, KEEN, and Scarpa for specialty women’s hiking boots, which provide lightweight materials and moisture management ideal for those long treks. Some of these companies have been in the industry of hiking footwear for decades, putting money into technology and research to enhance performance on all kinds of terrain.
