I've hiked in both hiking boots and trail sneakers, and I definitely prefer trail sneakers. They're far more comfortable, and since I'm not hiking for days, the blisters from hiking boots far outweigh any ankle support a boot might give me. Plus, I like to feel flexible, like I can move or turn on a dime. That's why I love a trail sneaker. If you're running or hiking on a trail, having a shoe with the right sole and traction is critical, and I like these nine pairs.

Whether you like something breathable and flexible or sturdy and cushioned, these nine shoes are going to be your new best friend. Once you try them, you'll never want to go back to a classic running shoe. Keep on reading to shop our picks!
