How to find your ideal pair of men's hiking shoes

When out on long walks, either light backpacking trips for just a day, a long weekend, or perhaps even an extensive hiking holiday, you will need the right kind of hiking footwear that matches the unique shape of your feet. We quickly walk you through key considerations you need to account for when you are choosing between different trail shoes and hiking boots for men:

For casual trail or hiking in the rough trail? - Types of hiking footwear include hiking shoes, hiking boots, and backpacking boots. Each choice comes with its own benefits. Hiking shoes deliver a light and low-cut shoe, which is ideal for a normal day hike. Hiking boots offer a great alternative for day hiking and shorter hiking trips. Backpacking boots are defined by their robust high-cut look, which offers optimal ankle support ideal for hiking with heavy loads.

What climate? - When choosing between hiking boots and shoes, you will also need to account for the climate and temperature of the area, in which you wish to embark on an outdoor adventure. Perhaps you need a particular light and breathable pair of men’s trail and hiking shoes that are suitable for hot and dry conditions? Maybe a warmer and more robust pair of hiking boots is the better option? Be sure to consider your need for weather protection when making your choice.

For multipurpose use? - It might be worth considering if you need a pair of men’s hiking boots and shoes that can be worn on other occasions or if you simply want a pair with leading performance and durability. Perhaps you are looking for street-ready designs or styles that are suited for trail running? No matter what you are looking for, we provide you with the best hiking footwear to fit any purpose.

What is the shape of your feet? - Every individual is different. Some people’s feet tend to bend outward, while others bend more inward. Some may just have a natural foot position. If you find yourself having a particularly high or low arch, you might have to account for either overpronation or supination. To reduce the risk of injuries, you may want to look for shoes with motion control, if your feet overpronate, and extra cushioning and flexibility, if your feet supinate.

These are some of the key considerations you need to know about when choosing the right pair of men’s hiking boots for your needs. It is also important to find an ideal fit to keep your feet secure and comfortable inside the boots. Whether you wish to go for lighter boots or thicker boots for long distances, it is also worth noting that a lighter pair may more easily get wet inside versus higher-cut and thicker boots; on the other hand, they are also much quicker to dry as opposed to your hiking boots if water enters.
