Gear up for your hike with outdoor-friendly styles from Columbia, HOKA and more.
If you're looking to hit the trails, you'll need good pair of hiking shoes or boots to keep you comfortably moving. Fall is an especially beautiful time for hiking. The weather begins to get mild again, and whether you're gearing up for a camping trip, prepping to trek out on a big hike or will be spending more time on some of your local pathways, a solid hiking boot can really go a long way. And luckily, there are plenty of durable shoes on the market that are as practical as they are affordable.
