Hiking boot recommendations for muddy trails in Kauai

I am looking for boots that will be good for muddy hiking trails and getting wet near the waterfalls slippery rocks.  Any recommendations?

@Jennifish775 thanks for reaching out! We have lots of great options for muddy hiking trails and slippery rocks, however it's hard to recommend specific models without knowing anything about your feet! A few thoughts:

  • If you are able, we recommend going to your closest REI store for a boot fit appointment
  • You can read some advice on how to select a hiking boot or a trail running shoe. It's a pretty personal preference if you choose a hiking boot, trail runner or even a grippy sandal for wet and muddy trails - there are pros and cons to each choice...
  • You can reply here with a few details about your feet (wide/narrow, other brands you like) and we can provide a few specific suggestions!

Hope you have a great trip to Kauai!
