What are the best hiking boots? I hope this backpacking for beginners series continues to be helpful for those of you hiking for the first time. In this video I go over what I think is a good way to find the perfect boot for backpacking. I started by doing what everyone typically does and chose a Gore-tex hiking boot for ankle support. Then I transitioned to a lighter weight shoe with a low ankle cut because I hate when my foot feels restricted. Finally I’ve moved to using trail runners. The major benefit of these are that they are lightweight and breathe very well. Your feet can get wet but this style of shoe dries very quickly.
