Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyHiker Looking for a Hiker that Doesn't Slip in the Heel?
As you age, your shoe requirements become more important. I need plenty of room in the toe box, but have found that most low cut hikers slip up and down on my heel. I've worn Oboz boots and decided to try these low cuts. They are perfect! They are sturdy and waterproof, just right for easy trail walking with no slipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatJ61 Best hiking shoes ever-- seriously, buy these!
A blogger I follow recommended these shoes for pilgrimages with lots of walking. Since my favorite activity is hiking, I decided to try them. Wow. These are the most comfortable hiking shoes EVER. They are supportive, keep my feet elevated and dry, and are just plain comfortable. I can wear a generous B or even a wide width. These shoes in B width accommodate my feet just fine. I ordered a half size up to account for the normal swelling of feet on long hikes. If you've been hiking in athletic shoes-- stop now and consider buying Oboz Sawtooth. These shoes were the best investment I've ever made regarding footwear.
