Hiking on trails in Florida

Picking out new hiking boots can be a challenge because you want to make sure you get the right fit and look, while making sure they’re good quality. There are different hiking boots for different terrains, so it’s important to know what kind of trails you’ll be exploring.

Exploring Light Trails

You’ll be able to wear an ankle-high hiking boot or shoe when the trail is well maintained.  You’ll want to make sure the hiking shoe has a good support and durable sole. Many of these types of shoes are not waterproof, so you’ll need to keep that in mind. The Danner Trail 2650 and the Women’s Trail 2650 are perfect for long miles on light terrains and easier trails.  

Tougher Trails

If you’re serious about exploring the wilderness and want a book that you can put a good amount of miles on, the Danner Skyridge and the Women’s Danner X Timbers Jag are your best options. Both of these are 100% waterproof and are meant for a variety of terrains. You can wear these everyday out walking or on some long hiking trails.

For a Mountaineer

The mountains and rougher trails call for a more durable and rugged boot that can do some lifting in rough conditions. The Mountain 600 and the Women’s Mountain 600 are the best all-around hiking boots from Danner. These have awesome grip for any type of surface ensuring a successful hike up in the mountains or on a windy trail in the woods.
