The Best Minimalist Hiking Boots

News / August 22, 2021

If you are a lover of hiking in the great outdoors, footwear is of the upmost importance. You will need comfortable boots to endure long treks through rugged terrain. And if you are looking to have a better connection to the ground beneath you, you will want to look at minimalist boots that will allow you to do that.

Minimalist boots (also known as barefoot or zero-drop) have a thin sole that have excellent ground feel that can help you be more sure-footed on uneven terrain.

Here are some characteristics you will want to look for when searching for the best minimalist boot.

  1. Comfortable

Obviously the first thing you’ll want to find is a boot that provides maximum comfort. When your feet feel great, you’ll have a much more enjoyable experience! A zero-drop minimalist boot puts your body in a more neutral alignment and allows for better posture. This can create less stress on the joints from your feet up to your back.

  1. Durable

You will encounter many obstacles in the wilderness. Boots must be well made to handle walking, climbing, jumping, and traversing. Look for quality stitching, durable material and a sole that will last.

  1. Non-Slip

Look for a boot with a non-slip sole. You never know what kind of terrain you will encounter on your hike. You will want a boot with good grip to get through dirt, mud, streams, snow, slush and more.

  1. Protective Sole

A good hiking boot should have a durable sole to protect your feet from sharp objects such as rocks, glass and sticks.

  1. Lightweight

Who wants to lug around big heavy boots on an all-day hike? A lightweight boot is much more comfortable to wear for long periods of time and there may also be less stress on the ankles and feet.

The extremely durable boot is ultra-lightweight and handmade in Germany with great attention to detail. The sole of the boot and the upper material is so flexible that they can be rolled into a ball for easy packing. Not only great for hiking, but the boot is also so fashionable that it can be worn for everyday wear. Available in neutral grey and taupe, these boots will go with any outfit.
