        Comments about SCARPA Women's Kailash GTX Backpacking Boots:

        I needed a boot to wear on a 7-day backcountry backpacking trip. After trying on seven different pair of boots, all of which would come right off my feet while walking up an incline, I was excited to finally find this pair. It's comfortable, has plenty of room in the toe box, and is narrow enough in the heel to keep my feet in place. It could be a bit narrower for me, but at least my feet don't slip right out of these boots. So far, I've put about three miles on them, and they have been wonderful. They're a bit stiff right out of the box, but not so stiff that they cause hot spots or blisters. Although I wear a size 8 athletic shoe, I ordered a 7.5 in this shoe (which is the size I wear in dress shoes) and they are just a smidge on the large side. With thick socks, at the end of a day on my feet, they fit perfectly. They appear to be sturdy and well-made, and I'm looking forward to putting a couple hundred miles on them in the near future.

          Comments about SCARPA Women's Kailash GTX Backpacking Boots:

          After the soles on my 12yr old EMS brand boots eventually crumbled, a helpful EMS employee told me that my boots had actually been made by SCARPA. After trying a bunch of boots on, these SCARPA boots fit my narrow feet the best and (not suprisingly) had the most similar fit to my old boots. I was only able to wear them for a few days in the city to try to break them in a bit before taking them on a trip to Sequoia and Yosemite. Despite this, I put them through their paces in both parks and they performed beyond expectations. Even after an initial 12 mile hike, my feet felt great - no blisters, no hotspots! I felt like I had a lot of grip, even downhill on loose ground, and the boots provided great ankle support. They kept my feet dry while hiking in light rain, and hopefully they will do the same when I experience heavier rain and snow. My only negative is that I have the grey/yellow boots and they do tend to show the dirt more than my old brown leather boots, but really this is a minor point given how well they fit and how well they perform.

            Comments about SCARPA Women's Kailash GTX Backpacking Boots:

            I loved them right out of the box and was a bit afraid that they might be too small due to the fact that they were 7 1/3 not 7 1/2. I do not have dainty feet but had no issues and have been really happy with them. When I got caught in deep black mud on one of my first hiking trips I cried because my beautiful new boots looked terrible. They did not leak, however. When I got home I let them dry and then simply brushed the mud off without a problem.

                    I have put this pair of boots through the tests and have to say that they are amazing! They fit super well, have a nice small heal cup so that my heal doesn't lift and move around (like a dance floor on a Saturday night). I don't get hot spots or blisters, there is enough room in the toe box so that my piggies have room to wiggle. Because they're Gore-tex, they don't leak. I know this because I spent 3 days trudging through the mud. The outers are super easy to clean too. They are a rugged stable boot that can take the punishment of a 4 day trip out carrying extra weight because I didn't know where I would find water next. they are well cushioned on the top and every time I wear them it feels like I'm walking in a pair of Cadillac's. Every time I wear them I say that these are the Cadillac's of hiking boots. Best purchase I've made in a long, long time!

                    I wore these for a hike up and down Mt. Washington, NH right out of the box. Comfortable and good ankle support and traction. Just bought a second pair.
                    Laces a bit long, but better than short Hard to clean the fabric, but that's not a major issue.
