Looking for hiking boot recommendations

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

  • Me too, though I've had good luck with Vasque too. Not so much with Merrell in recent years. Note that the Renegade may run a bit wide but they also come in a narrow width, both men's & women's. You may have to order the narrow ones online.

    There seems to be some variation in the shape of the footbed between brands. Try several of the better brands.
