Hunting is a sport that demands a lot of dexterity, endurance, and patience. But to get through the day, you'll also require top-notch boots. The Ridgeline line of hunting camo boots is now available.
What distinguishes hiking boots from hunting camo boots is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive. We're here to support you. When selecting hunting camo boots, keep the following in mind:
Mid To High-Cut Tops
The lowdown is that camo boots are available in low, mid, and high cuts.
- Low-cut clothing is lighter, more breathable, and cooler.
- Mid-cut: more protective, medium-weight, and ankle support.
- High cut: more supportive and protective
As you might expect, hunters should avoid wearing low-cut boots. They are less protective, less encouraging, and more likely to let water splash in. A mid or high-cut camo boot is unquestionably what you want for hunting. This will keep your feet much drier, prevent your ankles from rolling, and—best of all—help shield your skin from bites and scratches.

Since walking without stopping is the main objective, you'll find that hiking camo boots place a special emphasis on ventilation and coolness. Conversely, hunting camo boots place a lot more emphasis on durability. The types of uppers you want are as follows:
Leather is created by tanning a hide's exterior (the grain), then shaving off its hair and buffing it to a smooth, glossy finish. Split-grain, top-grain, and full-grain leather are the three quality levels available. Choose full-grain or top-grain leather over split-grain for longer-lasting results because the lower the quality of the leather, the more processing, sanding, and buffing were required to remove its flaws.
This is your typical smooth, shiny leather, or traditional leather. It is typically made of full-grain leather, which increases its resistance to damage and extended moisture exposure. It is extremely durable. The outside hide is also used to create nubuck leather, which has a napped finish for a softer feel. Nubuck is more comfortable right out of the box and is still very resilient. If you want premium, full-grain nubuck leather camo boots, look no further than the Ridgeline Apache or Warrior.
There are frequently waterproof and non-waterproof hiking camo boots available. However, since prey is known to frequent and pause near water sources, you need a waterproof boot when hunting. You will consequently frequently have to travel through soggy terrain. Jacquii Ferling, a Ridgeline ambassador, comments on her waterproof camo boots as follows:
I look for three qualities in a hunting boot: they must be lightweight, waterproof, and most importantly, pleasant to wear. I have finally discovered a boot that satisfies every need.
- Treated leather – During the tanning process, the majority of leather is given a DWR (Durable Water Repellency) treatment. This prevents water from penetrating the surface of the camo boots and causes it to bead and drip instead.
- Anti-wicking laminate: To make their own version of DWR, synthetic uppers can be coated with a hydrophobic material like polyurethane (PU).
- Waterproof membranes: These membranes keep any moisture from your socks and feet that manages to get through the upper materials. and HydroGuard
Two excellent examples are GORE-TEX (GTX). These membranes are covered in billions of microscopic pores that do allow small water vapor molecules to escape, preventing you from drowning in your own sweat. However, water droplets are too large to pass through these membranes.
Nobody enjoys having cold toes! Hunting boots should have an insulated lining to keep your feet warm, unlike hiking boots, which typically aim to vent heat. This is crucial when it's cold outside and you're spending hours waiting in a tree stand or ground blind.
Our hunting boots have 200gsm Thinsulate linings for the perfect balance of comfort, warmth, and breathability. Thinsulate offers a lot of warmth for its relatively low bulk and weight, making it a great insulating lining. An ideal quantity of insulation for active hunting is 200gsm, which is just warm enough for warm weather while still keeping the shivers at bay on chilly days.
Camo boots used for hiking and hunting both require sticky, long-lasting rubber bottoms. The best rubber available is produced by Vibram, which is known for its superior quality, sturdiness, and traction. Vibram capsules with hunting-specific tread designs, such as the anti-slip and shock-absorbing "wheel gear" that cushions the ankle from jarring, are included on all Ridgeline hunting camo boots.
