A good walking boot is a necessity for the outdoor enthusiast. General outdoor shoes don't provide the same required features as a walking boot. Serious walkers or hikers need a boot with a higher cuff for better ankle support when traversing rugged terrain. They also need a boot that incorporates moisture wicking technology with other waterproofing features. Walkers want a boot that provides comfort, extra support, protection from the elements and reliable durability.
