>>1066709 New balance, vans slip one, sperry topsiders, red wing if you want to wear boots, maybe some sort of trail running shoe if you are going to do some light hiking. No need to bring constructions boots, dress shoes, full on running shoes etc
>>1066709 no. you might as well wear a GOD BLESS AMERICA t-shirt and carry around an automatic rifle in one hand and a hamburger in another. You will just look like a dumb unfashionable redneck and people will snicker. You think any club is going to let you in wearing work boots? GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER BETA
Look up Common Projects Achilles Low as a good starting point if you have $500 to spend on shoes, if you are a poorfag at least spring $150 or so for something that looks half civilised. Here's a good place to start.
I have both. tim's are 4.1lbs. merrells are 2.1lbs. A pound per foot is very very significant if you're doing any significant amount of walking/trekking.
work boots are designed to protect your feet from work hazards/OSHA (steel toe, etc). the have virtually no padding. hikers are designed to protect your feet, and in turn, your entire posterior chain while you walk considerable distance.
they do have mountaineering boots that are bulky, but that's very different than your average hiker.
this is just advice. DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANNA DO
I personally wouldn't. Depending how much you're gonna be walking in them, they WILL feel heavy after awhile. Go for Lowas they're around the same price range as timbs, light,comfortable, waterproof, and durable. Had them while I was deployed in Afghanistan and never had any blisters. Timbs, if not really broken in, will fuck up your feet. Again, depends how much you'll be hiking and walking in them.
