    I'm buying hiking boots tomorrow. Leather? Any particular brand?

    I'm normal 5'10" 170 lbs, size nine feet, no special foot needs but regarding Mount Washington, Jewell Trail, I assume I need something sturdy and with built-in ankle protection for the strewn rock portion near the summit (so I presume leather)

    Thanks everyone.

    Rick and Heather

    We both wear Asolos. Tim's are the "Fugitive" (I think) and mine are the "Stynger".

    We like them a lot, but you really need to go into the store and try on a few different brands. Each brand fits so differently, you need to see what works for you.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for all the help, everyone who posted. After I get back, I'll post a summary and pics.
