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 would travel anywhere with my Keene hiking boots and they are bulky with ankle coverage but they are also like wearing bedroom slippers . I own a lighter weight pair of Keenes for the not so serious terrain
