Whats your budget?
The most comfortable hiking boot I've bought are a pair of Vasque Wasatch hiking boots at REI. They are $175.00, but the best money I've spent. I used them on a hike to the top of Mount Lassen a couple of years ago and they weren't broken in before I went. Not one hot spot or blister.

I know this is out of your budget, but I'd give you my .02

For a $50.00 boot, go to big 5 and try a pair of Hitec's on sale that usually sell for $60.00-$70.00 a pair. I've had good luck with them in a less expensive boot.
