Hello - I am new to the group and need to buy hiking boots. Any recommendations for style and for store? Thanks!

Hi Dianne,
I've bought boots at both Mountain Equipment Coop and Camper's Village, mainly because they both have a small climbing ramp in their boot section, so you can see how they feel going uphill and downhill.
Style will depend on what is comfortable on your foot, and your budget. I personally like a day-hiking boot with some ankle support, but that is still light on my foot. Some people prefer a hiking shoe, others a heavier, multi-day boot. Talk to the staff about the hiking you plan to do, and get their suggestions.
