Hiking hunting shoes should have insulation and increased moisture resistance. Choosing a pair you need to select the one for the most extreme conditions that can meet along the way. For example, if you plan to cross the river, it makes a sense to pay for shoes that can withstand immersion in water for a few seconds. Such shoes should provide a soft fixation (if the leg turns up in mud or on wet grass, the joint will be not turned out). They are light but yet firm. Hiking boots have more flexible sole. This allows hunter to feel the surface better and walk with less fatigue. And the stiffness of the boot generally well protects the ankle from dislocations.
