What’s the difference between men’s hiking shoes and men’s hiking boots?
In general, men’s hiking shoes offer less support than men’s hiking boots, but at the same time they are lighter and more flexible. Hiking shoes for men tend to be the better option if you are not venturing away from the trails and you prefer shorter hikes.
Otherwise, men’s hiking boots are more suitable and the Scarpa hiking boots are a great addition to your hiking gear with high quality soles, plenty of ankle support and lots of durability. There are plenty of good men’s hiking shoes available online as well, it simply depends on your preference.
The best hiking boots are the ones that fit snugly and provide all the support you need, but if they are too heavy, then hiking shoes might be more suitable until you build up the strength in your legs. Although, if you intend to a serious amount of hiking, a pair of good quality men’s hiking boots might be more suitable than a pair of men’s hiking shoes, saving you money on an upgrade as you become more experienced.
