Editors' Choice Backpacker Magazine 2008. Whether you take the Scarpa Women's Kailash GTX Hiking Boot on a day hike or a weeklong backpacking trip, it ensures you have the support and durability you need for every step. The Gore-Tex membrane creates a waterproof breathable barrier between your foot and a muddy stretch of trail. Scarpa used a Vibram Hi-Trail Lite sole to give you the traction you need and the long-lasting performance you expect. The suede upper and rubberized toe cap make the Kalish GTX Hiking Boot as burly as you could want without the feel of a heavy waffle stomper. Ideal for trail hiking and rugged day hikes regardless of weather, Scarpa's Kailash GTX hiking boots keep feet dry with maximum comfort.
