In this diversity of products that try to reach the customer, to get inside his heart and mind, creating the perfect hiking boots, some brands managed to find the key, the secret to sell the most. They took good consideration of the hiker’s needs and likes and built their boots around that.
All of these manufacturers have some things in common. It’s obvious that they made boots that differ (in design, performance, price) from the mass, but it also becomes clear that they are similar on so many levels.
These manufacturers created hiking boots that are, more importantly than anything, waterproof. Either they feature Gore-Tex, or they’re built from a waterproof material like leather, the best selling hiking boots are water repellent.
As much as we all like the light, day hiking, it seems that some hikers want high performance on rough trails from their boots. So, good hiking boots should also act well on the heavy duty trail anytime.
When it comes to comfort from your hiking boots, the list is very clear: good hiking boots should provide good ankle, arch and heel support. There should be also comfort for the toes (the toe cap protection is a must), the foot bed and the padding need to be in the right places, in the right amount. Quite easy, right? However, that’s easier said than done, and that makes the difference.
Let’s not forget about the lacing system. Laces should help the hiker put the boots on easily and fast, and to take them off just as fast, and should give the boot a snug fit. Not too tight, not too loose.
Any good hiking boot should have an outsole with good grip that gives good traction and stability no matter how slippery, wet, snowy or icy the trails might get.
The best sold hiking boots also look great. They catch the eye of the customer by their design and color combination. It depends on the buyer’s taste, as some people like the modern designs, others prefer a more classic appearance. To each his own – the market is rich in all models.
All of these features come at a price, though. And, the lower this is, the more a manufacturer typically sells. There’s a sweet spot for most buyers, where a level of required quality and desired price meet. Again, the standards vary – what’s quality enough for some may not cut it for others. But again, there’s a boot out there waiting for each of us.
