What Should You Look for in a Walking Boot?
Walking boots, just like hiking boots or other footwear designed to get you around in comfort and with proper support, should offer a perfect fit for your feet. Make sure your toes aren’t too close or snug to the front of the shoe. Your foot should feel properly secure on your whole foot, and your toes should be able to move enough that they’re not cramped or have pressure put on them.
One way to check to see if your shoes/boots are the right length is by trying on the boot and placing a finger between the back of your ankle and the back of the shoe. If you’re able to do that, with your toes touching the front of the boot while attempting it, you should have a pair that fits properly.
You will also want to consider trying on a pair of walking boots later in the day. This is when your feet are at their largest from being used all day long. That way, you’ll know your new pair of shoes will fit, even when your feet change shape and size as you walk.
Other factors to consider when shopping for a new pair of walking boots include waterproofing, material type, cushioning, and the amount of traction on the sole. Synthetic materials are more breathable and may cost less, but a leather walking boot is rugged, durable, and keeps you dry.
It all comes down to your personal preference, as well as the types of terrain you’ll be traversing! Be sure to pick the right pair of boots for your individual walking needs!
One last thing to consider when shopping for hiking boots is the brand. If you’re loyal to one brand over others, then you’re likely to know which one is right for you! If you’re not sure, or are new to hiking, take a look at the variety of brands available and see which one offers the features you’re looking for in a boot. Brands like Columbia, Rocky, Nord Trail, and more feature a vast array of boot options, so be sure to check out all options available and see which fits your needs the best!
