Sometimes a really great hike is just the right pair of walking boots away.
To the non-specialist or newbie, the world of hiking can be daunting, and buying good boots – and wading through all the nerdy technical talk that comes with them – can put you off for life.
Thankfully, we’ve done that wading for you and chosen the best boots on the market, perfect for beginners, experts, and everyone in-between.
Danner FP Movement Adrika
Danner are low-key icons of boot-making. And, unlike some other brands, their shoes are perfectly suited to normal daily life, we well as adventure.
The FP Movement Adrika is no different, and in fact perfects that balance.
With a funky colour scheme and a classic design, this is the perfect shoe for the walker who likes to drop everything and run to the hills.
Regatta Women’s Samaris II Waterproof Mid Walking Boots
This is a modern classic. Sturdy, comfy and full waterproofed for all weathers, you can’t really go wrong with Regatta.
The moulded EVA footbed keeps things comfortable and there’s a hardwearing XLT sole unit to keep feet steady in tough terrain.
Danner FP Movement Trail 2650
Modern hiking is about keeping moving. That means you don’t want hefty, industrial working boots weighing you down and picking up mud.
Keep things light and groovy with the Danner FP Movement Trail 2650. And with this colour scheme, you’re unlikely to get lost in the countryside.
North Face Men’s Vectiv Fastpack Futurelight Mid Boots
