hi, i am heading to the USA this summer and Will be doing plenty of hikes around the desert areas of Moab. anyone have any suggestions for hiking boots for trail hiking.

atm i have some pretty heavy brasher goretex boots, perfect for wet British winters but worried about 35 degree desert heat.

was looking at the merrell moab boots. any have any good suggestions.

i am looking more for lightweight, breathable, comfort than waterproof sturdy boots. does this sound reasonable?

thanks for any advice.

When I lived out there we just used old trail running shoes. Or sandals if on known ground. But approach shoes are designed for those, not UK conditions.

Enjoy

In reply to phja: I think Inov-8 have a sort of skeleton upper shoe that would be ideal. Heavy boots would be a pain. I remember I climbed HalfDome in Yosemite in fell running shoes. And that was in September. Certainly anything with a gtx membrane would be very uncomfortable.
