Along with the Summer, we also said goodbye to those sweaty palms and sweaty feet. We’re now prepping for the long winter ahead of us. While this holiday season is the season of merry and cheer, it’s also just about the right time to invest in some trusted pair of winter lightweight hiking boots for men. But choosing the best lightweight hiking boots can be quite the ordeal if one doesn’t know how to pick the right waterproof hiking boots.
Not just that, the best hiking boots generally tend to be bulky and heavy, taking up a lot of unnecessary space. While many travellers wear travel sneakers on their escapades and prefer hiking boots just for hiking, there are the few of us whose love for lightweight hiking boots knows no bounds, and we would go as far as to fashion them as our daily go-to footwear choice.
But for the adventurous few who enjoy a good old trek uphill, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to picking the best hiking boots for men. At Urban Shepherd, we understand that it is both comfort, durability and style that make our lightweight hiking boots a winter must-have.
Step 1 - Picking The Right Hiking Boots
From finding your size to finding the right kind of lightweight hiking boots for daily wear, there are a lot of factors to consider before making that big purchase. Firstly, if you’re going to be using your lightweight hiking boots as daily wear, you’ve got to keep in mind functionality, ensure it’s lightweight, and make sure that it is not too over-sized such that it inhibits your movement. The whole idea behind boots is that they are functional and sturdy footwear designed to withstand even the stormiest of weather conditions. Not just that, with the boot fashion on-point these days, you get to choose from a wide range of fashionable lightweight boots styles for men, even if you don’t plan on going hiking any time soon. So while you’re considering purchasing a pair of men’s lightweight hiking boots, don’t just think functionality - think both functionality and timeless fashion for all seasons of the year.
Step 2 – Wearing The Right Hiking Boots the Right Way
Choose the style of boot that best compliments your own individual sense of style. Once you’ve done that, narrow down on the color you wish to pick. Browns and blacks are the safest bet, considering they won’t be a hassle when trying to pair the right boots with the right clothing. Once you’ve narrowed down on color, consider the material of the boot. When it comes to picking the right pair of lightweight winter boots for men, you’ve got to pick one that can stand rough and tough weather and usage conditions. Preferably, opt for leather lightweight hiking boots. Leather promises to last a long time, is comfortable, and blends into the wearer’s feet seamlessly.
