Moving from winter to spring may mean mucky weather, rainy days or cold weather. While you might not need a warm winter boot, the right footwear is essential to navigating the day and the unpredictable weather.
Spring is a time of new starts and new adventures, and as most adventurers know, comfortable footwear is a must for the changing season. Whether you are relaxing in the garden, meeting friends for drinks or hiking the backcountry, you need boots that are stylish, functional and above all, comfortable.
In this post, we’ve rounded up the top five orthotic-friendly boots for men this spring, for those looking for comfort and style in their wardrobe. Take a look.
1. Oregon - Ecco
Are you an active person who loves to hike or take long nature walks as soon as the first signs of spring show? Our first pick for men’s orthotic-friendly boots this spring is this Oregon hiking boot by Ecco.
Ecco makes this boot with metal and leather details for a rugged, sporty look. The boot is extra light and gives lots of support. So whether hiking the trails or walking miles in the city, the rubber sole won’t slip on wet rocks or concrete and has a shock-absorbing foam insole.
If needed, Orthotics Direct can outfit this boot with a custom orthotic insole for maximum support. If you have wider feet, you can remove the inner sole to give yourself more space inside.
2. Oakridge Mid WP - Keen
The Oakridge Mid WP by Keen is another all-purpose hiking boot built for all weather and every condition. You can splash through puddles or take a walk on the beach and still come home with dry, comfortable feet. A signature feature from Keen, these boots have a waterproof membrane and mesh lining that keeps your feet dry and lets them breathe.
They also feature Cleansport NXT technology that provides odour control and a non-marking rubber outsole that offers excellent traction for wet conditions or slippery surfaces. Keen creates a boot that genuinely provides stability for your foot. It even includes a built-in stability shank and a removable moulded footbed for extra support.
The Radford 6” WP is a new take on Timberland’s classic style with extra comfort features. They kept the same full-grain leather upper of their signature boot but added a comfortable SensorFLex outsole. Timberland makes the boot stylish, supportive and flexible - comfortable to wear all day; an excellent boot for spring, as the weather warms.
4. Biltmore Chelsea - Ugg

As expected from a trusted brand like Ugg, this shoe provides an elegant look to this classic Australian boot, with an all-weather design to keep your feet dry in any condition. This boot goes well with a casual look like jeans and or moves easily to more formal attire. So you can meet your friends for dinner, catch a band or wear them the next day to the office.
Whatever you do, your feet will feel and look great in these boots.
Other features include waterproof leather upper, an enerG comfort system insole, internal EVA midsole and rubber outsoles for excellent traction.
