The moment that temperatures creep up past 60 degrees, you can find us outside. And after a long winter, we’re more than ready to bid adieu to cold temperatures for good (or at least the foreseeable future) and spend the rest of our days basking in the glorious sunshine. Hiking is one of our favorite springtime activities because it allows us to get outside and away from our phones for a few hours, while also helping us to meet our daily step count (multitasking!). With warmer temperatures on the horizon and flowers finally beginning to bloom, now is the perfect time to invest in a quality pair of hiking boots so that you’re prepped and ready for the hiking season ahead.
