After trying on several pairs of hiking boots, I finally purchasing a pair -- North Face Tyndall Mid WP.
I chose this pair for a number of reasons. The first being that they are lightweight. A number of the boots I tried on were very heavy and clunky.
The second thing I like about these boots is that they feel very much like high-top sneakers. They're very comfortable.
They're waterproof. I wanted the waterproof style, just in case,.
I also like the removable inserts. I could exchange them for my own orthotics. Truthfully, I do not think I'll need them. I'm going to try walking with and without them and see what I think.
Finally, I like the mesh zones for ventillation.
I'm going to go a 4-mile walk tomorrow to break them in. I plan to wear them when I walk to get used to them.
