Lightweight Hiking Boots/Shoes

If day hikes and short backpacking trips are the highlight of your summer plans, reviewers say the Merrell Moab Ventilator is the best lightweight hiking shoe. Its mesh and leather body is highly breathable, but not waterproof. The Ventilator is extremely comfortable and supportive for a shoe, providing great traction on all surfaces.

Women's Hiking Boots

The Asolo Stynger GTX's last is designed to fit a woman's relatively long arch and narrow heel; high points include a roomy forefoot and lacing system that locks your foot into the boot. These waterproof boots get top marks for comfort, traction and support. They're also surprisingly breathable, break in easily and weigh just over 1 pound each.

Heavy-Duty Hiking, Backpacking Boots

The Asolo TPS 520 GV's no lightweight, but reviewers say it's very comfortable after a short break-in period. Its stiff yet walkable sole provides excellent support without feeling clunky underfoot, and you can reasonably expect about a decade -- or at least 1,000 miles -- of use from these durable leather boots.
