    Runners unless you're gonna bushwack. I did the Uinta highline trail (about 100 miles) last year in some Saucony peregrines. Rocky exposed trail and lots of mountainous ascent. Runners did great. Actually, Saucony makes boots too. They aren't brought up as much in the hiking world as altra, topo or merrell but they're really good quality and come in wides, even the cheap ones.

          high boots are good for off-trail, or poorly maintained trails
          high boots are good for mud
          high boots are good when you can't see the ground you're walking on (like at night, or when obscured by foliage)
          high boots are good for walking steeply downhill
          high boots generally dry slower
          high boots are generally suited for colder weather
          high boots prevent ingress of debris (including parasites)
          sneakers are good for well-maintained trails
          sneakers are good for walking steeply uphill
          sneakers generally dry faster
          sneakers are generally suited for warmer weather
          sneakers permit the ingress of debris (again including parasites)

          take all of that into consideration. also consider that there are many hybrid types of footwear. you can get 8 inch tall jungle boots with trail runner type soles (nike SFB, rocky s2v). you can wear ankle boots and augment them with gaiters. your weight and height also play a role. tall men have longer legs and a higher center of gravity, and so are more likely to favor tall boots. short men conversely tend to favor shorter boots, and shoes. some people have defective ankles and "roll" them all the time - and they need to wear tall boots.

          another thing to consider is durability. I have had some leather walking boots for 5 years now. they need resoling but are still in great condition and will probably last another 5 with regular use. trail runners and synthetic boots just won't hang together that long. so of course you'll save some money and there's also satisfaction in having the same sturdy gear year after year.

            Yeah the durability part is important to me since I'm not swimming in money, then again decent boots cost at least twice as much as trail runners.
            For me the biggest advantage of trail runners is how light, nimble and responsive they feel when compared to boots, at least compared to the work type ones I wear, maybe proper hiking boots feel different.

              The kinda boots that are good for hiking aren't really designed to be resoled or anything like a traditionally made boot, they're gonna wear in a similar way to a trail runner.
              Now in the case of boots that are designed for repair-
              I've got some logger work boots I've taken hunting and resoled once in 10 years, really awesome pair. But they're like 2lbs a boot. Even hiking ten miles in a day with them sucked serious breasts. I wear them any time I gotta do anything I might drop something on my foot or really beat the shit out of them. But I would not have been able to do a 400 mile through hike with them in anywhere near the kind of time I could do it in some nice trail runners. If you're looking for long term durability and not going to burn rubber on trail that's a reasonable choice. You wanna go hard on trail and replacing shoes every year isn't a huge factor get some runners.

        Shoes don't matter except for ankle protection. Not so much against rolling (boots that are stiff enough to do that are to stiff to walk with, like ski boots), but against thorns, rocks etc.
        Just make sure whatever shoes you buy have a hard sole with as little padding as possible to reduce the strain on your legs from keeping balance.
        I've used feiyue (cheap chinese sneakers) before to carry a 20kg alice in the tropics and light (non-capped) work boots to carry a number of packs in temperate zones, and both worked just fine, the only downside being that both wore out rather quickly. Now I'm using heavy combat boots that can be properly resoled, but other than them being a little warmer from the extra ankle and toe protection, I haven't seen much difference.

          you have no fricking idea, I used to work in a shipyard and tried wearing normal shoes but I kept rolling my ankles all the time. Millitary boots actually prevents rolling, but you need to tie it properly.

        I dunno what you’re seething about here. It’s a brute fact that in the Alps shit gets technical and dangerous at far lower altitudes than in the US.
        So yeah, European scenic walking routes like Tour du Mont Blanc go around the mountains, as you might be able to infer from the name, while similar routes in western US go over mountain peaks.
        All your coping is mitigated by the fact that I buckbroke a 4 km peak in New Mexico at a ripe old age of nine.

                You've literally never left your home state lardarse, let alone your country. European trails are harder than American trails mainly for the fact that Amerisharts are so much more unhealthy as a result of driving everywhere and slurping HFCS, that they'd be constantly dying and/or trying to sue the state/national park etc. that manages the trail.

      OP is probably doing the Colorado Trail. It is literally the most bougie hiking trail ever.

      You do 100 miles from Denver to the mountains. Then you get to the resort playground area where there is a hostel every 20 miles, and they’re basically multi millions luxury mountain homes with bunk beds and a common kitchen and a hot tub and a Whole Foods right down the road. I think that there are more cannabis dispensaries and micro-breweries along the trail than there are official campsites and mountain shelter lean to’s.

      Then you do the last 150 miles, with a small section that goes through a wilderness area. And it ends in Durango which is basically a small city with a college, it’s akin to an upper middle class Seattle satellite suburb

    Okay so I am in a need for a new pair of hiking boots or combat boots. How should I go size wise? Should I buy a pair that allows me to have boot socks in conhunction with regural socks on or just the regural socks? They will be used during spring, summer and autumn. For winters I have a pair of M77 combat boots that allow me to wear double thick wool socks.

      With boots, I wear double pure wool socks all year round in any weather, even +30°C, a thin one against the skin, medium or heavy over it.
      I recommend you buy boots in person. Wear the socks you'll use on your trips while trying them on, push your foot all the way to the front: there should be about one finger worth of space behind your heel.

        Well I need boots that I can use in both reservist activities and hiking. So either combat boots or black colour hiking boots that would be okay to be worn with field uniform.
        >buy boots in person
        That's sadly a no go because the stores within reasonable range from my home don't sell boots that would be acceptable for the reservist tasks. And why I'd want to have boots that could do both? That is so that I could get the most bang out of my buck. Also, are there any hiking boots without the goretex? Goretex seems to always let the water in sooner or later and then it takes forever to dry when they do so.

            Well the pair I own is so large that I will have to wear two pairs of thick wool socks. I accidentally got the M77 a size too large, but for winter use they are perfect when it is really cold. Therefore, they are too warm for other than winter use.

      OP literally this. I normally wear my Altras with gaiters for trailed stuff because I like to run but I will gladly wear my boots (Garmont NFS, I wear them in uniform for work anyways) for wetter, muddier, rougher, and colder stuff. I do both offtrail and trailed stuff and the correct answer is that it really depends.

      For your situation, I would recommend trail runners if you don't expect snow but you are going in spring at high altitudes. The most important thing is that you've broken in whatever footwear you choose and then you are comfortable with it. I've done boot runs and they aren't that bad and I've done rough hikes in trail runners and been fine. If you do do trail runners, gaiters are an absolute must.

                dude. I have made 3 posts in this thread. I simply pointed out that walking up avi fallout is like walking on rocks and would be easy to do in just about any shoe.

                Please take the voices and demons in your head and shove them up your ass.

      If thats the case I'll advice that you wear high boots. The downsides of wearing boots are not that big of a problem

      Either or. That's not enough scrub that it's hard to avoid. But boots would allow you to tramp on through. I'd probably just toss on some gaiters and use runners though since that's rocky enough terrain that I wouldn't worry about getting bogged down in any mud.

      My Speedgoat 5's are clown, Ronald McDonald red. Truly hideous.

      But I've got huge feet. You take what's available in your size when your parameters are rare. Love my Hoka's regardless. Excellent performers and very comfy shoes.

      Just got some brand new all black trail runners. I really like that I don’t have to clean them when I get back home. All black is the way to, except maybe it’s not the best for detecting ticks that might be crawling up towards your legs.

    Do any anons have recommendations for someone whose feet sweat a ton? I'm looking for something airy and am considering the the Salomon S/LAB ultra 3's but don't know if trail runners are the way. For context I hike quite often for my job in the military and get a ton of blisters from sweat feet in my boots.

      Apply Gold Bond powder or equivalent. Consider affixing Leukotape where you're blistering as a preventative measure -- it breathes. Never put it on a blister, the adhesive will rip skin off. Wash your feet before bed every night when possible to keep them dry. Wear snug thin running socks under Darn Toughs.

      I sweat everywhere like the foul animal I am. After two hours movement my feet smell like expensive cheese.
