What do you need from your boots?
Your boots are arguably the most important component of outdoor wear. It is important that you have a good idea of what you hope to use your boots for before purchasing, as this will dictate which pair of boots is right for you.
Ask yourself questions like: what temperature and weather conditions will I encounter? How many miles will I cover typically? What sort of terrain will I be traversing? Will I be using the boots every now and then, or day after day for an extended period? Once you’ve answered these questions you should be able to form a pretty good idea of what you need from your walking / hiking boots.
If you will be using your boots for relaxed to semi-challenging walking or family walks every so often then you have a huge range of suitable boots available to you. If this is the case then it is not necessary for you to spend extra money on the latest and greatest boot technologies.
If you are planning on undertaking challenging / advanced walking, hiking or hill walking day after day in variable conditions then you should look to be spending more money to make sure your boots have the technologies you need.
A quick outline
Having a lower weight boot generally means compromising sturdiness, and vice versa. However, basic low weight boots are great for flatter or lowland walking when you are sticking to the trails. Heavier boots are typically more durable and sturdy, offering increased protection and stability on more rugged terrain like rock.
Level of support
Typically linked very closely with the weight of your boot, different levels of support can be provided by things such as: varying ankle heights, internal and external shanks, flexibility of the sole.
The out material of your boot isn’t just for aesthetics. Different materials offer different levels of waterproofing, breathability, flexibility, and require individual methods of care. The outer materials are most commonly split by the differentiation between leather and synthetic. Loads of subcategories fall within these two main categories. Take a look at our buyer’s guide to see which may suit you best.
Inner / liner
The lining of your boot works in coalition with the outer layer to provide different levels of comfort, waterproofing and breathability.
Sole and tread
Just like the rest of the boot, what you need from the sole depends on what you will be doing. For ultimate support, durability and longevity Vibram soles are world renowned. You will find that boots have varying levels and designs of tread to perform best on certain terrains, from grassy lowlands to scree covered summit approaches.
