13 Of The Best Hiking Shoes So You Can Hit The Ground Running

Promising review: “I bought these specifically for a four-day trek on the Inca Trail in Peru. Very rugged terrain, long hours in the boots, a true test of comfort. With only a week of prior break in, I had no blisters, no soreness, and zero complaints about these boots. They are now a favorite part of my arsenal for hikes and outdoor adventures.” —Leslie

“I am absolutely in love with these hiking boots! They are legitimately waterproof, not ‘water-resistant’ where it superficially keeps the wet out. I used these boots in Costa Rica in the rainy season and never once had to deal with wet feet. Now back in the states, they get daily hard use for my summer internship as a naturalist. I have stepped in puddles and in the lake with water almost to my ankles and still I have had dry feet. Also, the soles of the shoes are naturally super comfortable and fit my feet perfectly. I have not had to buy other insoles for them. The only thing I am disappointed in is that these shoes weren’t in my life four years ago.” —TShim
