Princesses wear hiking boots, as can every other person, according to children's author Carmela LaVigna Coyle. Wearing hiking boots is a choice that can express personal style and help someone feel more comfortable.
Any girl can feel like a princess no matter where she comes from, according to Coyle, author of the children's book "Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?" Connecting hiking boots, which are rarely seen as feminine and royal, to princesses helps young girls feel more comfortable with themselves and what they wear. Any girl can wear whatever she wants if it makes her feel good about herself. Although it may seem like an oxymoron, some princesses wear hiking boots, some wear sneakers and others wear glass slippers.
