Trekking shoes

Hi guys,
So, I am going for trekking, this is my first experience, so really excited. Going with my friends, and they all have trekking shoes, and caps as well. They have asked me to get one as well. I have been looking online, but really confused among these, . Can someone suggest me the best choice ?? looking forward to your suggestions.

not sure what you mean by trekking
does that refer to a specific type of hiking?
if tekking is a specific term i just dont know about it
if its just a general term and you mean a hike
then would want more details on the trek
those rubber boots you posted are good snow /wet boots
but not very good for extended distances, at least none that i have used
for winter hiking recommend good hiking boots, waterproof, more insulation, at least 800gr
along with gaitors and some sli[p on traction devices
gaitors will keep snow from going down your boots, and keep bottom of pants dry,
slip on traction come in handy on icy terrain,

if you do go with rubber boots, i have never owned a $100-$200 pair of such
ones i have are usually $50
look at these for under $50 with liner, and have cinch closure on top to keep snow out
i use kamik made in canada
