Fit footware to the conditions of your hike. On city streets and groomed trails I like low cut "hikers". Move it up a notch to a more "wilderness" location and it's mid cut boots. The suede and cordura type fit in here.
Finally up to wilderness travel with rough trails, rocks, including scree, talus, boulder hopping and snow and it's a full grain leather boot, preferably with a Norwegian welt.
