When it comes to outdoor adventures, your footwear should be first and foremost on your packing list. Having the right equipment for a long hike enables you to get the most out of your experience, without having to worry about comfort.

Comfort and safety are two of the most important attributes that your hiking boot must offer. Finding just the right boot for you may sound like a time-consuming and unnecessary expense, but your feet will surely thank you later for making the investment.

Lucky Shoes, with locations throughout Northeast and Central Ohio, carries a wide variety of hiking shoes and boots that are perfect for your trip to the trails.

The Ecco Aspina showcases an outdoorsy yet feminine look. Pair them with your favorite thermal leggings and a quarter-zip pullover for a comfortable and warm hike through the trails. With the use of Yak leathers and light-weight technology, these trendy hikers can be worn all season long.


The Keen Terradora Mid boot is a great option for that deep foliage that may come your way during a day on the trails. This hiker includes a waterproof outsole and cushioning panels that keep pressure off the Achilles. With all of these 
features, this style is still very feminine and trendy, giving you the best 
of both worlds.


The Dansko Paisley is a great option for the woman who prefers a lower-cut hiker. The Paisley features waterproof uppers and is also slip resistant, which is a must on icy surfaces. This durable shoe can still be paired with jeans or leggings on the weekend for a casual outfit, but don’t be afraid to wear it on the trail.


The Merrell 1Six8 Moc is a hybrid hiking shoe that can double as your fall athleisure option as well. On a warmer fall day, sport this with your favorite leggings and a T-shirt on the trail. You can even wear this shoe with jeans and a hoodie while running your weekend errands. This style adds to the athleisure trend that will still be going strong this fall.


The New Balance 1300 is a hiker that includes the Roll Bar stability feature showcased in many New Balance shoes.


The roll bar offers superior stability allowing you to hike even rocky terrain in comfort. Double this as your durable casual option in the fall and the winter. With its waterproof capabilities, it will keep your feet warm and dry.
