Question by  Ricky87 (4)

Should I consider custom made hiking boots?

I hike a lot.

I would not recommend it. They will be very expensive and you can find boots that are just as good at any fine retailer. Go to someplace like Sportsman's Warehouse or Dick's Sporting Goods and you can find fantastic boots for more reasonable prices. However, if you want something that no one else has, you might consider customization.

There cannot really ever be anything wrong with some custom shoes or boots. Since every person's foot is different, no one shoe can fit perfectly. A custom shoe or boot would allow for the most support and comfort, which can be important when participating in physical activities.

I would only consider this if you have a difficult to fit foot. Try going to stores like REI or Hudson Trail, they have employees who can fit boots.
