The Best Hiking Boots For Men 2019

If you’ve ever been on the 14 mile round trip all day hike of Long’s Peak in Colorado, you know the value of good hiking boots. That boulder field before you get to the keyhole can be BRUTAL on the feet and ankles.

Then on the back side at the last approach, you need traction, as trickling water one day can be a sheet of ice on the next, even in Summer. You need something waterproof and you need something impervious to the cold, but not smothering while at the warmer lower altitudes.

Here are the five best hiking boot picks on my list.

All of these boots are high-cut varieties except for the Salewa, as this would give the hiker the best support on the ankle. I included the Salewa mid-cut because any post about best hiking boots better include Salewa. I have positioned them lowest to highest in price, but higher price does not necessarily mean higher quality, as you will discover.
