What height boot do guys prefer for long hikes? I know a lot of people on here like the Kenetrek Mountain Extremes, but I also see some lower 6" to 8" boots being favored. I have a pair of Crispi Mountain Hunters that are 10 or 11" that i love, but I see the Hanwags and Lowas are almost all 6 or 8". Does the lower height have a benefit, or is it just personal preference?
