For an impending thru-hike of the PCT, I am debating between three different pairs of hiking shoes that will need to be appropriate for sections of the trail which will inevitably range from scalding to frigid, if all my research done up to now serves me well. That being said, I have narrowed down my choices to either these, the Salewa Alp Trainer GTX Hiking Shoe, or the Salomon X Ultra GTX Hiking Shoe.
Anyone recommend one over the others, and if so, why? Any input, suggestions, or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!
