Hey everyone, my girlfriend and I are looking to implement regular hiking into our lives. We have a massive interest in both hiking and exploring small creeks, but we want to be as efficient and frugal as possible (meaning we do not want to own a different pair of shoes for every conceivable ordeal we may encounter).
Does anyone know of boots that could fulfill both of those needs? Ones that are solid for hiking but waterproof enough to get us through knee-deep creeks without getting soaked? If no such boot exists, does anyone have a pants/boots combo to recommend? Breathable/cool waterproof pants for hot summer days.
