I am in need of a decent hiking boot that is low to mid height for ankle support.

I don't need high boots as I already have a couple pairs for hunting. But I am planning on a couple backpacking trips next season with the scouts as well as some buddies and need to find a new pair soon so that I can start breaking them in.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Ps: budget will prob be $200 or less.

Bax, in that price range if they really for hiking and not so much hunting I would strongly consider the Kenetrek Bridger Ridge High. I think they are running about $170 at Sportsman's. I love the Kenetreks.

I'm not really sure what counts as a low boot and what counts as a high boot, but I love my Danner High Ground boots. There are several different options for insulation, color, etc.

I think they ask $150-$170 a pair at places like Sportsman's Warehouse or Cabelas, but you can find some better online deals if you shop around. I'm not quite sure how they set prices on amazon, but you can find some good deals there on certain sizes.

Thanks for the suggestions fellas!

I've needed a pair for a while and have mostly hiked in sneakers. They work fine but ankle support would be helpful for sure.

Well... I ended up being given some Adidas AX2 (Camo) hiker / trail shoes for Christmas. So I guess I will end up giving them a try this coming season.

They seem pretty comfortable, so now we gotta see if they are durable or not.

I would go to REI and try out everything they have.

Some of their stores also have this little mound that you can walk up and down to see how the boots feel on inclines.

I bought a pair of Lowa's and I have been happy with them ever since.

They are not high tops so I also wear snake gaiters with them as well.

You guys do realize this thread is nearly a year old, right? Of course your information is good, just probably no longer applicable to the OP. Hopefully it helps someone else along the way.

Resurrected threads are tricky about that.

I wonder how Bax liked his Adidas?
