When you’re on the trail, the last thing you want to worry about is painful digging and rubbing due to too-tight toe boxes. And if you have wide feet, it’s especially important to invest in a pair of boots that will accommodate your foot shape in order to stay comfortable.
To help make your search a little easier, we’ve rounded up a range of sturdy looks — many of which are complete with a waterproof and breathable Gortex (GTX) liner — that are available in wide to extra-wide width sizes. Shop them all below.
1. Timberland White Ledge Mid Waterproof
While Timberland is best known for its street-ready 6-inch boot, the brand also carries a range of quality hiking boots. The White Ledge is one of them; it’s waterproof and features a leather upper and durable rubber outsole. And at $110, it’s one of the most affordable options on the market.
