Hiking Boots

When it came to Hiking Boots, it was impossible to find a man's boot with over a 4.6 rating out of 5 covering over 100 reviews. As a matter of fact, there were only two boots that got a 4.7 and a 4.8 and they were both women's boots. So we're entering these two and the top  two we found for men and one for the youth. Overall, most of the top bands came in at 4.2 to a 4.5 rating over thousands of reviews.
