You'll want to match your hiking boot to the type of terrain you'll be encountering. Are you going on a week-long backpacking excursion up giant rocky mountains or just a light day-hike through on a local trail? Are you going to be treading through water? Then you might want to pick waterproof hiking shoes. Wherever you plan to roam, your shoe should be chosen accordingly.

Good hiking shoes are essential for making sure you stay safe, dry, and ready to tackle any type of obstacle. Women's hiking shoes and men's hiking shoes offer different types of support, but the brands on this list have great options for hikers of the female and male variety.
