Footwear & Poles

These are the best brands for hiking footwear and trekking poles, as well as our top picks for each category.

Hiking boots, hiking shoes, hiking sandals, trekking poles, and a few other footwear essentials do more than protect your feet. Hiking footwear is one of the most important items because it provides stability on uneven trails, giving you traction when navigating slippery terrain or rocky paths. Benefits of trekking poles help alleviate some of the weight on your knees, back, hips, and ankles when carrying heavy packs hiking downhill. Here are our reviews and top picks from the most durable to the ultralight models on what you should bring with you out in nature! Hiking footwear and trekking sticks must be comfortable, lightweight, sturdy, and ergonomic so you can take them from a plane or car to the backcountry. To make it easy, we’ve included comparison tables and shopping advice to provide you with all the information and where to buy.
