Ahnu Women’s Sugarpine Hiking Boot Review

Ahnu Women’s Sugarpine Hiking Boot Review
It seems unbelievable, but light weight may give comfort, support, space to the foot and... be also colored prettily. These boots mold to the feet, give good traction even in the mud and may be used in all outdoor hobbies! They also give warmth and... attract compliments for the owner, since they make the foot look smaller 🙂

PROS:

  • these boots feel very light weight!
  • they give plenty of support
  • it’s very comfortable to wear them

CONS:

  • I think the sizes run small and it’s helpful to go ½ size up
  • they rub the ankle (it’s definitely because of how they’re built)
  • I never lace the boots up to the top since they rub my ankles if I do


 

Finding the right hiking boots for me is a little bit difficult since I really care about nature and I prefer to not wear any animal products.

So, when a friend of mine told me about these vegan boots I got pretty excited. They got to me pretty fast and nicely wrapped, that is the first thing to mention.

There are so many things that made a good impression on me when it comes to these boots and I’m gonna run a tour through my list of “pros”:

  • these boots feel very light weight!
  • the boots give plenty of support
  • it’s very comfortable to wear these (even for many hours) since they are pretty roomy
  • I take these boots in 90% of my hikes and they give me no blisters
  • I also take these boots around town
  • I really like the color combinations (actually it was pretty hard for me to decide which colors to go with)
  • the boots really mold to your feet
  • the traction is great with these boots, even in the mud. Actually, I spent once 3 hours in the mud and I didn’t fall once
  • now that we talked “mud”, it was very easy for me to clean the boots afterward
  • I use these boots for almost all my outdoor hobbies (canoeing, 4 wheel driving, kayaking and even hunting!)
  • your feet surely feel warm in these boots
  • I got complimented for these boots…”Your feet look smaller!” and I guess all women (big sized in shoes…) feel nice when they hear that
  • the Vibram sole is great since even on my heavy duty trails my feet feel comfortable!

There are some things that I think should be improved with these boots, though…

Let’s give it a go to my “cons” list also:

  • I think the sizes run small and it’s helpful to go ½ size up
  • they rub the ankle (it’s definitely because of how they’re built)
  • I never lace the boots up to the top since they rub my ankles if I do
  • they… look better in the pictures. Don’t get me wrong, they also look amazing in real life (this is why I fell in love with them), but…reality differs from the pictures
  • they give no arch support
  • they lack the rugged-original Timberland boot look
  • they do feel a little bit chunky
  • I would have liked for them not to need a break in period
  • the boots are too roomy in the toe box (you can even wear 2 pairs of thick socks)

In the end however, I will buy them again (different color combination, of course). They come at a good price, I really love the way my feet feel and look in them and they give a great deal of comfort on my long-hours hikes. The not very pronounced sole helps with the comfort and the main problem remains the slight discomfort for my ankles. But they still make a great buy since the blisters don’t happen that often, anyway. Maybe I just need other socks 🙂
