Hiking boots are footwear specifically designed for the sport of hiking. They are boots that rise up the ankle and usually are laced up. They are very important shoe to use when hiking since their quality and durability can determine a hiker’s ability to move faster and more safely. Hiking boots are constructed to provide comfort for miles walking over rough terrains and protect the hiker’s feet against water, mud and rocks. Most hiking boots are also designed for other outdoor activities such as backpacking, climbing, mountaineering, trail running, hunting and casual outdoor wear. Hiking boots are stiff to support the foot. They are made out of leather, rubber and other materials.
