Looking for hiking boot recommendations

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

  • If you have not previously worn hiking boots, suggest that you check with your local outdoor store, REI online, or similar and talk to someone who is an experienced boot fitter. Not all stores, even sporting goods stores, have sales folks who know how to fit hiking and outdoor shoes. Happy trails/sidewalks/etc.
