Men's Hiking Shoes

These days, many hikers are abandoning traditional mid-cut leather hiking boots in favor of lightweight, low-cut hiking shoes. It depends on how much you're carrying in your pack, and the ruggedness of the terrain, but hiking in light hiking shoes can be much more comfortable than wearing heavy hiking boots. It is said that every pound of weight on your feet is equivalent to five pounds in your pack, and a good pair of hiking shoes will keep you moving fast and light for miles and miles of trail. Along with improved comfort and lighter weight, hiking shoes don't typically require a break-in period like hiking boots, and are less prone to causing blisters. However, if you need the extra ankle support and stability -- or you're planning to carry a scout troop's worth of gear in your backpack -- don't be shy about going old-school with a pair of leather hiking boots! Indeed, hiking and multi-sport shoes aren't just for day hikes; most ultralight backpackers (and many thru-hikers) use them almost exclusively on long trips, for the same reasons that they provide a benefit on short hikes. After all, these hiking shoes have the same features as the heavier hiking boots do, including Gore-Tex linings for waterproof/breathable performance, and Vibram rubber soles for great traction on all kinds of surfaces. We have a broad selection fo hiking shoes available, from brands like Asolo, Vasque, Keen, Merrell, The North Face, Salomon, Five Ten and more. When choosing a pair of hiking shoes, fit should be one of your primary concerns... at Rock/Creek, our staff is highly trained in helping customers find shoes with the proper fit, and we love hearing your stories when you return from the backcountry!
