These hiking boots are the best for any kind of weather! You can wear them on slippery waterfalls or in the snow. The bottoms of the shoes have amazing grips that keep you from slipping. And did I mention that they're waterproof? That's right, you can walk right through a creak with these babies and your socks will not get wet! They also do well on dry rocks, sand, mud, grass, really any type terrain nature throws at us. Comfort wise, these are great as well. They fit like a glove and are true to size. I have never gotten any blisters from these and didn't even feel the need to break them in when I first got them. If you're outdoors in most of your free time, you need to go get yourself a pair!
