Having hiking boots that fit right is key to being comfortable and preventing injury. But unlike shoes, you don't want boots with a flexible sole — keep this in mind when you shop.
If the soles bend too easily, your feet will move up and down a lot as you walk. You'll end up tiring your feet muscles out more quickly — not good if you plan to hike far! It may feel weird or uncomfortable when you're trying them on, but you'll be much happier once you get out on the trail. Check out the video above for more tips on buying hiking boots.
