Trekking or hiking boots are designed for long hikes through the mountainous or sparsely populated environment that includes rocky mountain trails, forests, moss, snow or glaciers. Footwear must be comfortable, breathable and waterproof (membrane). Trekking shoes are designed with a pretty solid soles; they are strong and durable for safe movements on rough terrain and slippery slopes.
When looking for and comparing hiking boots, it is important to know the features hiking boots can have and understand how they work. One of the features is weight - the lighter your boots, the easier your walking will be. Moisture is one of your biggest enemies when it comes to hiking. Moisture causes blisters. Breathable and watertight materials will allow moisture to leave the inner parts of your boots but will not let water enter. Fully gusseted tongues cover the openings of your uppers.
Trekking boots will support your feet and ankles from twisting on uneven surfaces. Higher boots with stiff ankle supports provide a big part of the lateral rigidity. Also they support your feet from over-bending when placing too much weight on the toe or heel side of your foot. At the same time, trekking boots have enough longitudinal flexibility to support the arches' natural spring action.
Trekking boot soles give the needed friction on all expected surfaces. To achieve this goal, hiking boots have deep-lugged soles of tough rubber. The soles absorb and redirect shocks and cushion the soles of your feet. They are stiff enough to give enough support while at the same time are flexible enough to facilitate the natural walking motion of your feet.
