Looking for Good hiking boots.

I bought some Merrill's, as I have always enjoyed the way they fit. Well, after hiking in them for a week and putting in close to 50 miles, I have decided that I need something a little more flexible. The shoes I bought are very stiff. Anyone hike in Keen's? What's better above or below the ankle? I have no ankle issues-

  • I don't know. Do you have an REI or a local store that specializes in hiking in your area?? I imagine they can make recommendations much like running stores make recommendations on running shoes!

  • I agree, REI might be the way to go. Let them help you out, and test them as much as you can.

  • My first thought was REI, but I am vacationing right now, and there is no REI on the Island :(
