1. Is the brand or the type of boot more important for women's hiking?
Whether the brand is Ugg, Merrell, Salomon, Patagonia or Columbia, the type of boot is more important than wearing a fashionable brand when you go hiking.
2. If I have a limited budget, what hiking equipment should I buy?
Injuries can occur frequently unless you purchase footwear specifically designed for the sport of hiking. They are the most important hiking equipment since they impact a hiker's ability to move farther, more quickly and with safety.
3. What should I check for when buying hiking boots?
Often hiking boots are waterproof but not always. You should make sure that your hiking boots are waterproof if you might encounter water, mud, rocks, and other wilderness obstacles.
Stiff hiking boots that have high-tops to support the ankle are the best for the foot and can allow a hiker to walk for miles over the most difficult terrain.
