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 hiked the Alps in low cut Oboz and LOVED them. I never had a blister. They are neither heavy nor are they trail running shoes. I would suggest getting real hiking shoes or boots, not running shoes. Make sure you get them with enough room for your toes and tie them tight. You don't want your feet slamming against the front of the shoe when hiking downhill. Quality socks are a must also.
