There are a number of reasons why you might have sore toes after a day hike. The first thing to check is that you are wearing proper hiking socks with at least a medium cushion. You should also make sure you are using proper lacing technique to ensure your heel stays firmly seated in the heel cup of the boot and your toes don't slide forward and jam the front of the boot. We suggest looking up hiking boot lacing technique tutorials. Finally, if you still find the boots are causing pressure points and soreness, then you may want to try a different width or size.
