Looking for hiking boot recommendations

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

  • Ahnu Montara Waterproof Hiking Boots - Women's
    I wear these lightweight Ahnu hiking boots everywhere with black pants or jeans, the navy blue goes perfectly. I wear them on pavement and in the dirt, in the forest and tidepools at the beach, also at lighting conventions, construction sites, and in business meetings. They are waterproof. They have excellent arch supports - a deal-breaker for me. I will be buying my 4th pair in another two years.
