Am I right in thinking that "mid" and "high" in the name of a hiking boot refer to the height of the upper on the ankle? And if the name of the boot contains neither adjective, then I'll just need to look at the picture?

Hi @Fred1 - Thanks for reaching out! This is a great question.
While different vendors do use different naming conventions, you are correct that the "mid" and "high" in boots is describing the boot's height.
If you would like to search a specific height boot, you can also type that directly into the search bar on REI.com. Examples to use include "over the ankle hiking boots" or "high ankle boots". If you are looking for a low height option, those are generally described as "hiking shoes" rather than boots.
The photo is a great way to check the height of the boots you are looking at. You can also check the Footwear Height line listed under a product's technical specs.
Hopefully this helps!
