Let’s face it. Hiking shoes right now are evolving, and the trends of what people like will be changing constantly. You’re either comfortable wearing a traditional boot, or your looking to go a little more sporty with a trail runner. In this post see which are the top men’s hiking shoes for 2019.
Either way, once you find a style you like- stick with it. Your feet are one of your most important tools while hiking, so make sure you feel comfortable in them.
Here are some of the top men’s hiking shoes for 2019:
You really can’t beat a classic Moab. They’re tried and true and tested by many. They come in a variety of colors. Have plenty of great grip from the Vibram sole. (You’ll see that as a common theme). Most importantly, they boast ‘out of the box comfort’. Meaning you don’t need to break these in.
The Keen Targhee 2 Hiking shoe features a rubber sole that are designed to last. These don’t feature the Vibram on the bottom, but the lugs are 4mm, so there’s plenty of depth there for grip.
Trail runners offer the grip of a traditional hiking shoe, but the added comfort of a running shoe. If you’re not expecting to be on super difficult terrain, trail runners are highly recommended. With Salomon you’re going to get the best of those worlds. You also get close-to-foot fit and 30mm lugs on the bottom.
Saucony are highly rated when it comes to running shoes, so when they started making trail runners they grabbed a lot of attention. The mesh on these shoes is specific to the trail-line, so breathability is upgraded. You’ll have plenty of grip and comfort in these even for a traditional running shoe name like Saucony.
