THE BEST HIKING AND TRAIL SHOES
Here are our top picks for what shoes to wear on your next adventure:
If you are going on a multi-day hike and carrying a heavy pack or walking on challenging terrain you may want a full boot with ankle support and a stiff sole to protect your feet from sticks and rocks below. Make sure to size up a little bit in your hiking boots, to allow your toes wiggle room when hiking downhill!
