Boot Height

There's a couple reasons why hunting boots are higher–one of the main being that since hunters are almost by definition off-trail, they are going to be in brush and there are a lot of critters that bite at the ankles–so extra protection is a big plus.

  • Hiking boots have greater flexibility to allow you to move around unhindered. However, because hunting trips are less about movement, you don’t need the flexibility of hunting boots, which is why the latter often extend beyond the ankles.
