Jane be nimble. Jane be quick.
Supportive boots are essential when hiking in rugged, rocky, and steep mountain environments, especially with the weight of a heavy pack on your back. But the extra weight and bulk of full-leather boots can also be cumbersome. Enter the La Sportiva's Trango TRK GTX Women's Boots. Weighing in at just over a pound, these boots are light, supportive, and super breathable to keep feet cool and comfortable during peak-of-summer hikes.
La Sportiva built the Trangos around a breathable and light polyester mesh material, then applied TPU overlays for protection against the rocks and logs you'll encounter on the trail. Rubber toe and heel rands ensure the boots don't break down when you're spending most of your time off trail. Since rain and mud is almost always a threat, La Sportiva was sure to put a Gore-Tex membrane behind the ultra-breathable mesh upper, and it even threw in AirMesh tongue inserts to increase the overall breathability of the uppers.

Great Hiking Boot
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have only used these for hiking in snow so far, but so far, so good! I have tried lots of hiking boots & typically get hot spots or other issues. i have not put serious miles on them yet, but did not notice any rubbing issues. The Gore-Tex membrane is great for snow as it keeps your feet nice & dry.
She loves these shoes!!
Got these for my girlfriend, she likes the fit and the gortex is a great way to keep her feet dry. She is very happy she can basically stand in a small stream and have no water coming through.
