So one of the things I have been "encouraged" to do is walk. I am however a reluctant walker, but I am doing it. So far my pair of trainers/running shoes have been fine, but now that the weather is getting cooler and wetter, I need to "upgrade" the something more substantial and waterproof. So I am on the hunt for a pair of basic hiking boots. When I started to look for these I found that there are hundreds of different kinds. I have narrowed down my preference though. I am liking this type of boot/shoe:
I need it to be lightweight, waterproof and not too low and not too high up my ankle.
I am walking a little more each day, and even tackled a little hill today, but am not ready for an all day hike!!! Are there any do's or don'ts when it comes to hiking boots? I also don't want to spend a fortune, so any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
