Best Hiking Boots for Travelers

Hiking boots are the hardest thing to pack. We’ve often opted to bring running shoes on our travels because our old hiking boots took up so much room in our suitcases. So we flipped out when we saw a rolled-up pair of Lems Shoes. Yes, these ankle high boots are completely collapsible.

We took ours out to Death Valley to see how they held up to desert adventuring. ▲

    Across the street from the bitter-cold waters in Monterey Bay is the only hotel we've ever stayed at twice. In fact, we've made Lover's Point Inn our home-base for our annual new year's trips for the past 4 years. It's 80 bucks a night, overlooks the ocean and, most importantly, is in one of our favorite places in the world: Monterey, California.

    We were no less giddy the third time we took the pontoon out onto the Atchafalaya River. It was after dark. The best view of the milky way was up the river, away from the light of the wedding reception...

    Ok, sorry I’m going through all of your archives and basically stalking you guys (haha). How do you like these? I’m currently in the market for some good hiking boots.

    • Ha! Always glad to meet a fellow adventurer. These boots are great. We like our hiking shoes to be as a thin as possible so you can actually feel the ground with your feet. These are thin but durable and are great for packing b/c you can roll the boots up! They aren’t great for hot weather though b/c your feet get overheated. I think Lems makes a summer weight version of these too. We haven’t checked those out yet.
