As Backpacker Month on TFG comes to an end, I’m reaching out to you with a personal travel gear challenge: hiking boots for women.

I’ve started planning my travels for 2015 and I’ve decided to challenge myself with an epic trek! While I can’t disclose details at this point I do find myself in unknown territory. My travels take me to beaches (lots of them), cities, small towns, and mountains…but not like this.


Help Me Choose the Best Hiking Boots for Women


I’ve checked out a few outdoor shops here in England and asked for their recommendations on what they think are the best hiking boots for women. My requirements are that they are light, durable, have ankle support, and are made for difficult cold conditions. I think stylish hiking boots for women are a bit of a push but hey, that’s always a major bonus!




These are two styles from UK brands that I found to be good options:



Style wise, leather hiking boots appeal to me the most because it’s the closest in appearance to actually wearing boots. I’ve seriously got to research more leather options like these and try to find ones that don’t look as clunky.




These are the more traditional look and are a lightweight but sturdy. The colors are neutral and they were more on the narrow side in comparison to other hiking boots for women.

But now I leave it up to you fellow travel fashion girls. I’ve put together a list of some of the best hiking boots for women that I’ve found and hope that YOU can help me pick the one that will make it into my 2015 packing list! Are you familiar with any of these?
