OBOZ Beartooth BDRY Women's Backpacking boot. Sturdy plastic shank for great support. Comfy leather liner with just the right padding in the tongue. For this much boot, the weight is superb: a pair of size 7 weighs only 25 oz! Nice high instep, if you need it! Rigid crampons??

Very comfortable and a great price point (Amy's recommendation).

I absolutely love these Smartwool Trekking Heavy Crew Socks for hiking! They have just enough cushion to be comfortable but don’t take up too much room in my boots. Even after wearing them on two Kilimanjaro treks and throughout four New England winters, they are still in great shape and have a few more years in them! Absolutely worth the investment. (Katie's recommendation but everyone in our office loves these too!)
These are my trekking boots. They were very sturdy, but also very comfortable and kept my feet warm and dry the whole time on Kili. I still have them and use them all the time. Even today since it’s raining! (Michael's recommendation)
