    My daughter and son-in-law go hiking all the time, and I can say that they would not want to wear their heavy hiking shoes on the day-to-day. Like you pointed out, they aren’t great for exercising, and they are much too heavy for running. I would highly suggest that if someone really loves hiking that he or she take the time to save up for a pair of hiking shoes and use a quality pair of sneakers for everything else.

    Great article going over the pros and cons of hiking shoes for day to day walking. It has always been my understanding that you would want hiking shoes and walking shoes to be different most of the time. However, there are more flexible, low cut hiking shoes that can be tolerated throughout the day as walking shoes, but they also won’t be very good for hardcore hiking either.

    Great points. And recommendations when you are looking to purchase hiking shoes. I just went through this process last month when I replaced my North Face hiking shoes. I was amazed at all the new materials used in hiking shoes and the large selections to choose from. Instead of going with North Face again, my son convinced me to try the Hoka SPEEDGOAT MID 2 GTX. It took me about two weeks to break them in, but I am so happy with them. They are lighter than my previous pair and provide the ankle support I need. If anyone is in the market for hiking shoes, I would definitely recommend your site and a great starting point. Great Job!
