The first time I wore these hiking boots, I kept saying, "These boots are comfortable!" "I am so steady on my feet!" "My ankles are totally supported!" "Look! I'm tromping through the water and I can't feel any water seeping in!"
It was kind of like I was in a commercial for The North Face. Except my hair was messy, I barely had any make-up on, and I was carrying a baby.
In all seriousness, the Syncline GTX boots ($150) are outstanding. I give them a solid five stars when it comes to construction, functionality, and...cuteness (they don't look huge and masculine like some boots do). Another plus is that these boots require almost no breaking in - I slipped them on and my feet were immediately at ease.
If you're considering a reputable pair of boots for light hiking and outdoor adventuring, I highly recommend the Syncline GTX.
