The Most Comfortable and Durable Hiking Shoes for Men
These are the best hiking shoes for men looking for a lightweight shoe that won’t compromise support or traction.
Finding hiking shoes for men that stay comfortable even on the most rugged terrain is a challenge. If your vacations usually revolve around hiking—or even just have a hiking component—you want a pair that is lightweight but still seasonally appropriate. A lot of the heavy-duty but quick-drying materials allow a good pair of shoes to work for multiple seasons. The ventilated mesh works for summer, but they are snug and insulated enough to still be appropriate for late fall hiking. The best hiking shoes are the ones that you turn to for a quick trip or a long-haul.
In terms of men’s style, lumberjack aesthetics are no longer a requirement for men’s hiking shoes. Instead, no-lace, durable, light climbing shoes are the name of the game these days. They still have plenty of traction, with most leading options offering 5mm lug soles, but you’re not carrying nearly as much weight on your feet anymore. (And of course, some of the best hiking shoes still offer mountain man vibes if that’s your style.)
We've put together a list of the best hiking shoes for men this fall.
