Re: Hiking Boots/Shoes
For hiking on paved trails for exercise, I use hiking athletic shoes. For warm weather in the woods , I have some military desert boots. I saved some boots from waders for hunting in warmer weather.
Never found a pair of insulated leather boots for the South, so I finally bought some winter gaiters. Will work good for my hiking partner this winter. She doesn't have winter hiking boots, so the gaiter will provide some lower leg and ankle protection. Will be good as backup on any winter trips north.
I have two pair of rubber winter insulated boots for hunting.
