I work as a professional guide in the state of Idaho. Most of my time is spent doing six to eight day white water trips. Most of the time I take a size 8, 2E boots. Often I have problems, due to narrow heels, high arches, and a high instep. I am looking for a rugged hiking/work shoe. Any recommendations? When I have to extend heavy work with horses involved I switch to my White’s Packers, but these are a bit much around camp and on the river.

Hi, Dan,

Thank you for your message. You may want to consider the Lems Boulder Boot (www.naturalfootgear.com/pages/lems-boulder-boots) for around camp and on the river. It’s a lightweight, minimalist boot with foot-healthy attributes, including a wide toe box that encourages natural toe splay. It’s a versatile piece of footwear that might make an excellent companion for your time in the Idaho wilds.

Kind regards,
