Looking for hiking boot recommendations

Are beefy hiking boots worth the extra weight or are trail running shoes good enough? Which do you prefer?

  • I bought strong leather WOLVERINE padded, ankle support boots for an archaeology tour to Egypt. They served me well as we trekked into the hills in the Valley of the Kings and at Aswan- also for field work. Wolverine has women's boots, but expect to pay $100 or more and be sure to break in any boots you buy. Walk in them for at least two weeks before your trip.
