Which men's hiking boots are best for me? 

Quality men's walking boots will see you through each new adventure.

When you choose the right pair and look after them carefully, they should serve you well. And to keep walking in your boots for years to come, it's worth knowing which type might be best suited to your lifestyle and interests. You can choose between:

  • Lightweight walking boots

For shorter walks or quick day trips into the countryside, lightweight walking boots could make the best choice. They're designed for lighter use on easy terrain, so they might not be supportive enough for longer treks or expeditions.

  • Midweight and backpacking boots

When you're carrying a rucksack all day, it's important to choose sturdy boots that help you step up to the task. Backpacking walking boots for men are supportive and hard-wearing enough for tricky terrain. They're designed for shorter cross-country expeditions and adventures.

  • Mountaineering boots

These high-end boots are designed for specialist activities or longer trips on challenging terrain. Mountaineering boots are generally heavier, more rigid and offer more enhanced ankle, heel and toe support than any other walking boots for men.

Which socks should I wear with men's walking boots?

The pair of socks you wear could make an enormous difference to how comfortable you find your new men's hiking boots. But since there are several types and brands to choose from, it might feel tricky to know where to start.

We've written a handy walking socks buying guide to demonstrate the importance of this often-overlooked but vital accessory. Knowing which features to look out for could determine the success of your next adventure, especially if your feet need extra support.

How should walking boots fit?

Men's walking boots should be snug but not too tight.

You need to aim for all-day comfort but also think about other factors like the thickness of your socks and the natural swelling of your feet. When you come to try on some walking boots in-store, we'll focus on four areas:

  • The insole: Take the insole out of the boot. With your foot placed on the insole, you should see a gap that's as wide as one or two of your fingers above your big toe. This little bit of wiggle room will go a long way when it comes to keeping you comfortable on steep descents.
  • The heel: Your heel should fit snugly but naturally into your shoe, a bit like an egg in an egg cup. If it's not secure, the movement will generate heat; unfortunately, that heat could give you blisters.
  • The width: You should never choose a men's hiking boot that causes a pinching sensation in any area. The fit needs to be snug, but you'll quickly know if your shoes are too tight by walking for just a few minutes indoors.
  • The depth: Everyone has a different foot size, so you'll need to think about the width and depth of your shoe. Try to strike a balance; if your new men's walking boots fit perfectly for length and width but it feels like there's too much space above your foot, we might recommend trying another insole.

How to clean walking boots

Taking care of your boots is a guaranteed way to keep them in good condition for longer.

Men's walking boots are available in many different types of material, including leather, full-grain leather and synthetic fabrics like nylon. Knowing how to clean your boots will therefore depend on the specific brand, type, and fabric.

We know that when you get back from a long day out, the last thing you want to think about is cleaning your boots. But leaving them caked in mud will shorten their lifespan, so the most important thing you can do is give them a rinse straight away.

In our care and repair guide, we've explained more about how to look after your technical clothing in the most suitable way. So, whether it's a new waterproof jacket or a pair of men's walking boots, you can keep your kit looking pristine.
