Hey

Do You Need Waterproof Hiking Boots?

No one would be in comfort having wet feet throughout a hike. This is when waterproof hiking boots come to the rescue. But what have you known about waterproof boots so far? Let us take you through some important information about this wonderful type of hiking boots.

What makes it waterproof?

Basically, waterproof shoes feature a high-tech membrane. This is an advanced technology to ensure your feet keep dry under wet and raining conditions through an innovative breathing method. The membrane, or waterproof lining, typically made of ePTFE, has holes that are small enough not to let water in, yet big enough to allow the moisture escape. This factor makes the best hiking boots of all time both waterproof and breathable. For example, the water from the pouring rain can’t get in your shoes, while the moister from sweats inside the hiking boots will still evaporate.

The most well-known and widely used in this field is the Gore-Tex lining, which the “GTX” term in many waterproof hiking boots are named after.

Are waterproof hiking boots really waterproof?


Let’s be realistic about this. Obviously, you can’t just take your waterproof shoes underwater. Waterproof hiking boots are made water resistant to keep the water off your shoes at every angle, but they can’t deal with total submersion. In other words, you cannot just completely dunk your foot in the water and expect your hiking boots to stay dry.

Nevertheless, good hiking boots with excellent waterproof factor will ensure you comfortable hikes without wet feet.

Do I need waterproof hiking boots?

It all goes down to where you hike, how the weather, and terrains are in that area. For example, if you often go hiking in tropical regions, where the weather is unexpected with rains and puddles, you probably need a waterproof hiking boot.

In fact, having waterproof hiking boots will offer more advantages than you’d think. Here are some reasons why you should get a pair of this type of boots.

Combat against any weather condition

First of all, waterproof boots will keep your feet safe and dry at all times. Comfort and safety are the two most important factors when it comes to hiking. You can get blisters from hiking in wet feet. Especially in winter, you might even get frostbite, which is even worse since it can pose a potential danger to your feet.

Thus, having waterproof boots will allow you to comfortably hike in any conditions, as long as the pair is breathable.


Cope with any hiking terrains

Besides the weather conditions, the terrain is crucial in deciding what kind of shoes you should wear to the hike. There are different types of hiking boots made for different terrains. With waterproof hiking boots, you can confidently and pleasantly trek on trails full of shallow streams or swamps.

Waterproof boots, as long as the water is shallow enough to not go over the top of it, will certainly keep the feet dry crossing the streams or hiking under the rains.

Final words

To wrap it up, hiking boots, which are both waterproof and breathable, will offer you a pleasant hiking experience. You will be able to stay present to enjoy the hike without worrying about clammy feet or soggy shoes.

We hope this article will help you know more about waterproof boots and get yourself the Top Rated Hiking Boots for your next hikes.
