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 prefer trail shoes - but for long down hill days I like a higher shoe that keeps my foot from creeping forward with each downhill step. I also buy hiking shoes 1/2 size larger than usual to prevent toe chafing. Any extra space in the heel etc can be padded.
