Hiking/Backing Boot recommendation for an Outward Bound trip.

My teenage son will be backpacking with N.C. Outward Bound this summer.  Five to 10 miles daily with 50lb packs.  7 day trip.  Do you have any recommendations for boots?

Hi there @Darlene !

Thanks for reaching out!  There are a lot of considerations when it comes to finding the perfect boot for each individual.  I would start by checking out the advice in this helpful article .

In addition we are offering virtual outfitting  appointments that are designed specifically around getting the best recommendations on fit, while our stores remain closed.

I hope this helps to get you going in the right direction!
