Black Girls Hike - Best Hiking Boots

Hiking boots are critical to your comfort and performance on the trail.









They are often fit with essential features that will save you a lot of pain and heartache while out hiking that regular sports performance shoes don’t have. These features include:


· Toe caps – added protection to keep your toes and toenails safe when/if you hit your toes on rocks while navigating outdoor terrain.

· Traction – hiking boots have special soles for increased traction. Traction keeps you from slipping while walking up or down hills.

· Waterproof Material – because most hiking boots are waterproof, you won’t have to worry about wet socks when walking across a stream or river.
