Deacent Hiking Boots?
I decided to take a girl I just started dating on a hike to Escondido Falls for valentines day and have a picnic there. However I don't have a pair of hiking shoes / boots and would like to get a pair so I don't ruin my shoes. I anticipate having to walk though a stream so the shoes will be fully submerged in water and would like a pair that can holdup to that type of abuse and provide good traction.
The last pair of boots I had I destroyed in the river hiking up to The Bridge to Nowhere.
