Most hikes don’t need a big, heavy, technical hiking boot. And most hiking boots don’t let your foot bend, move, flex and feel the world… until the DayLite Hiker EV.
"EV" is short for "EVolution" because this version of the DayLite Hiker is a new and improved version of the original. Plus it’s designed to let your foot move and function the way it’s supposed to. Perfect for day hikes and casual wear, the DayLite Hiker EV is built with our foot-first design and natural movement philosophy.
Note that the DayLite Hiker EV is NOT a fully waterproof boot.
Why you’ll love the DayLite Hiker EV
Natural FIT - a wide, anatomically correct toe boxes let your toes spread and relax, plus a non-elevated, "zero-drop" heel for proper posture.
Natural MOTION - your feet are supposed to bend and flex and move. The DayLite Hiker EV is super flexible to let them do that. The low-to-the-ground design is perfect for balance and agility.

To help reduce the chance of getting an incorrect size, we HIGHLY recommend you follow these instructions.
Step 1 - Measure your foot
- Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper).
- Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall.
- Make a mark on the paper at the furthest point away from the wall… this will either be just in front of your big toe or second toe.
- Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.
Here’s a video showing the process...
Step 2 - Check your measurement against the sizing chart
NOTE... - For the most reliable fit, we recommend you use the foot length sizing info in the table below. - If you think you’re "between sizes" we recommend you go up to the larger size. - Our sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback and we provide advice on a best efforts basis, however we cannot 100% guarantee a proper fit.
