We totally agree: finding some great hiking boots under 100$, some things got to give. From all the qualities a good boot should have, you need to choose some that are most important to you and to care less about others.
If you plan to hike all year long, no matter how cold, rainy, snowy, it gets, it’s not impossible to find the boots that are, above all things, waterproof. It’s almost sure, though, that getting a long life span for the waterproof boots priced under 100$ is nearly beyond reality…
When you like to challenge yourself and try a new type of trail every time you hike, no matter how rocky or edgy that might be, it’s obvious that your perfect hiking boot should have a grippy, sturdy outsole, great cushioning for comfort and great shock absorbency just as well. Tough, but not impossible to get that for less than a 100 bucks.
Some like to mix hiking with walking, running errands around town…which translates into them looking for the most versatile hiking boots that can take hiking but also a lunch at times. We talk about the boots that look pretty to get up in town, but are sturdy and able to take on day hiking the same weekend.
The market gives all kinds of options when it comes to women’s hiking boots. Some are lightweight and go great on a day hike, some are heavy weight and perform amazingly well when heavily backpacked for a weekend’s hiking trip. Every feature, every single ability of the boot counts in terms of price. You get the looks, but you can’t get the performance in the mud. You get the breathability, but you lose the complete waterproofness and warmth the boot could give.
In the end, after a good look in your pocket, you need to know exactly what you want from your boots. The market takes in consideration most of your needs and likes, and you’re sure to find something in the price range you’ve set.
Priced at $ (hover to see the current price), the Timberland Women’s White Ledge Hiking Boots fit very well, are very sturdy and do a great job when hiking.
