1. Nike ACG Hiking Shoes
You can’t go wrong with gifting your forest-walker with one of the heavy-duty shoes in this line. Built from materials that are as lightweight as they are tough, these shoes can help your hiker go as long, far, and high as they desire.
Air Zoom Gaiadom GORE-TEX shoe boasts large lugs along the outsole (also known as traction-giving bumps), which will help your hiker pal scale steep inclines. And a three-pronged traction pattern will enable them to scramble safely along unmarked territory. These boots also provide extra protective padding along the ankle, offering extra comfort and support to those muscles and tendons as they traverse across rough terrain.
- Nike Air technology absorbs impact and adds cushion for comfort
- Extra padding around the ankle aids in descent support
- Reflective laces for nighttime visibility
