Get the boot!
I don’t rave often about shoes (hiking boots for that matter)… but I love this boot: Vasque Women’s Breeze 2.0 Mid GTX Hiking Boots. The highlight wheel: super comfortable, light, breathable, waterproof leather, rubber toe bumpers, reflective piping and tough. They keep my piggies warm and add at least an inch to my height! LOL
Highly recommend. I bought mine at REI.
