Without a comfortable pair of hiking boots with ample protection for your soles, the journey ahead will be unforgiving right from the start. One of the best go-to brands for hiking footwear is Merrell, and they’re back to equip you for the summer season. The Merrell Altalight Knit Hiking Boots are the company’s lightest pack hiker ever, providing you with a smooth ride regardless of the terrain.

These water-resistant boots feature tear-resistant athletic uppers with reliable, featherlight Stratafuse protection along with durable, sticky soles so you can keep chugging along even on wet terrain. You’ll benefit from a glove-like exoskeleton and removable Kinetic Fit BASE contoured insoles for superior flexibility, allowing you to maneuver around the obstacles in front of you. Merrell Air Cushion technology in the heels will absorb shock, adding stability, and lightweight FlexPlate technology imparts torsional rigidity so you can stay sure-footed throughout your entire journey. Top off the list of features with 5mm lugs and Vibram Megagrip, and you have an incredible pair of hiking boots that’s hard to overlook. There’s also a low variation of the hiking boots, in case you’re looking to cut down on more weight. The Altalight Knit Hiking Boots will drop in the spring of 2020, starting at $180.

Purchase: $180+
