    For short hikes and long slogs.

    Whether you lace up the Scarpa Women's Kailash GTX Hiking Boots for a quick day hike or a week-long backpacking trip, they'll ensure you have the support and durability you need every step of the way. The Gore-Tex membrane creates a waterproof breathable barrier between your foot and muddy stretches of trail. Scarpa used a Vibram Hi-Trail Lite sole to give you the traction you need and the long-lasting performance you expect. The suede uppers and rubberized toe casp make the Kailish as burly as you could want without the feel of a heavy waffle stomper.

    Long break in period

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 41.5
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    Footwear is an important gear item for me since I am a professional outdoor educator and guide. I needed something waterproof and able to cushion my feet when I am carrying heavy loads. Sometimes, my pack weighs 60 lbs. I hated this boot at first - I would always get blisters. I tried different lacing techniques, socks, and insoles. Nothing worked. Really, I just needed to let the boot break in. Finally, at the end of my guiding season, these boots gave in and delivered a comfy ride. I have used these for stream crossings, rugged volcanic terrain, easy glacier travel, difficult snow travel, and peak ascents. I put them through the gauntlet! The construction is holding up and the boots are molding to my feet. For a synthetic boot, this is a good deal if you can get them on sale. I expect these to last several years of heavy use.

    Love/hate relationship for me feet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 39.5

    I so want to love these boots but I have very mixed feelings about them. I wear a size 8 so the 39.5 size fits great but when hiking and surpassing about 6 miles I start to really dislike these boots. Where the back hits on my calf (about 2-3 inches above ankle height) I start to get a big ol' knot/bruise from where the boot hits and the soles of my feet start to lose that comfort plus feel and feel more like flat/solid ground in your shoes. They have great traction and do well hiking through puddles and streams but they really add some wear and tear to my body even with good tall bridgedale hiking socks on.

    Heavy but Great Boot

    I love these boots! I've had them for over a year now and used them for hikes in the Adirondacks during the spring and summer, as well as daily footwear in the winter around town. They are heavy, but worth it for the protection and performance they give back.

    The Adirondacks in the spring are wet and muddy, but these boots hold up great. They truly are waterproof. I've tromped through water up to ankle deep and except for the splashes my steps cause getting in over the ankle my feet were totally dry. The traction on the soles holds up on muddy and slippery grounds and any falls I've taken are due to my own lack of balance, not slippage from the boots.

    Summer hiking...ehh. I guess the awesome water-proofing makes them a bit hot for summer temperatures. I wear a lighter boot during the summer.

    Upstate New York gets cold and is super snowy in the winter. I'm not hardcore enough to go hiking during the winter so I use these boots for walking my dog on reasonably cold (10F and up) snowy days. Anything lower than that and I switch to my heavy-duty winter boots.

    Pros: Good support. Good grip on slippery surfaces. Awesomely water-proof. Good for colder weather.

    Cons: Pretty heavy. Too hot for summer temps.

    **Update** I completed an AT thru-hike last year and used these boots for the first 500 miles until winter was well and truly gone. I love these boots even more now than I did before. They were broken in before I began hiking and I got maybe 3 blisters the whole time I used them. I hiked on sunny days, on cold snowy days, and on miserably wet days. My toes were very cold in the snow but it never melted through and got my feet wet. The only time my feet got wet was when I'd give up and tromp through puddles on the totally rainy days. Near the end when I switched out for lighter summer boots, my feet were decidedly hot, but as I've said before, these aren't summer boots.

    After all this time, the boots still have NO wear and tear on them! Seeing other reviews I know these boots aren't for everyone, but for my feet they're just great.
