Anybody have any suggestions as to light hiking boots/sneakers? Mine are getting worn out & they are rather heavy and klunky. Any suggestions for womens hiking boots or sneakers? Thanks a bunch. :)

There was a thread back in April on this that might give you some ideas; there were quite a few links referenced (I have not gone to any of them). Also, check the gear reviews; I reviewed my boots a while back, and I still love them. While not shoe specific, I suggest shopping (or at least trying on) in a store with a ramp designed for testing hiking shoes--LLBean and EMS stand out. There were boots I liked at EMS until I hiked up the ramp.

At McKenzies Gear Store in Lincoln Square on Main St, Lincoln, yesterday I saw a lot of m & w Lowa's on sale for 50 - 70% off list. In the $60 range for a $150+ great quality boots... and a big selection of everything else!

I have had trouble with soar feet myself. The main problem is I have narrow feet w/a high arch. Recently, my all leather boots had begun to kill the ball of my feet. So naturally I bought new boots while it rained in the whites. I found that the Asolo Stynger GTX were just absolutely the most comfortable women's boot I have tried yet. I have only taken them on a 6 mile fairly low incline hike, but they were almost like wearing sneakers w/ extra support and waterproof capabilities. I read on some site that backpacker magazine named this boot in their top buys for 2005, but don't know if this is true. Hope this helps. :D
