Hiking boots for men: walking well mile after mile

Hiking is the favourite activity of many people who enjoy being outdoors in the mountains or forests. If you also regularly go on multi-day hiking tours and walk on rough terrain, a pair of good hiking boots, trekking shoes, trekking boots or mountaineering boots should definitely be part of your equipment - depending on the terrain you are most likely to be walking on. The most important thing with hiking boots for men is that the shoe is waterproof, that the soles are suitable for the conditions of your tour and that cushioning elements are used to protect your joints. This means you can be out and about in your hiking boots for several days without getting sore feet and perhaps having to end your tour prematurely.

Hiking boots for men: comfortable, robust and easy on the joints

To ensure that your hiking boots can withstand the high heights of your activities, you should pay attention to the following things when choosing them.

You can recognise good hiking boots for men by the following features:

  • They are extremely robust and offer you a very good grip on almost any underground.
  • The soles are stable and vary in hardness depending on the requirements. Integrated midsoles provide additional damping, which is easy on your joints on long tours.
  • There are flat, medium-height and high hiking boots for men. This allows you to choose the right shoe model depending on the desired stability and season. A raised weather protection edge ensures stability and offers additional protection against moisture from the outside.
  • The outer material is weatherproof and can be protected again and again against penetrating moisture thanks to suitable impregnation. Some models are also equipped with a waterproof membrane, for example Gore-Tex.
  • The inner lining can be made of textile or leather, depending on the model. It is soft and comfortable to wear. Hiking boots for winter should have an inner lining that is as warm as possible.
  • The shape adapts flexibly to the shape of your foot when worn.
  • Some models are equipped with brake studs in the centre of the tread to give you even more grip on steep paths.
  • Hiking boots are quick-drying and easy to clean after use. Regular impregnation further increases their service life.
  • Additional features such as integrated ankle protection, roll-supporting, stabilising anti-supination and overpronation zones or a heel with shock-absorbing activity, a climbing zone at the front and the FreeFlex system for better flexion of the foot further increase comfort.

Hiking boots for alpine activities

If you like setting off on demanding alpine tours in the mountains, you should be particularly careful when choosing hiking boots or mountain boots. An ankle-high shaft is essential for mountain tours. This protects you from twisting your ankle on rough terrain and spraining your ankle. Mountain boots for men should also always be waterproof and breathable, as the weather can change quickly in the mountains. The soles should give you grip on demanding underground terrain and have good cushioning properties.

Don't forget to break them in before your first tour

If you've bought new hiking boots for men, don't forget to break them in well before setting off on a multi-day hiking tour. This gives the material time to adapt to your feet. This will prevent you from developing painful blisters from the still unworn material when hiking.
