Our Top 5 Women's Walking Boots
With our editor Andrew White reviewing outdoor kit for the Independent newspaper, we get to see a large selection of walking gear - and here are our selection of the Top 5 Women's Walking Boots available now.
As we get to see new kit, we'll be updating this page, so keep popping back to stay up-to-date with our selection.
Berghaus Women’s Explorer Trail Plus GTX
With the Explorer Trail Plus GTX, Berghaus have another sturdy, well-made boot suitable for most walking conditions.
The “GTX” signifies the presence of Gore-Tex, so totally waterproof here, and the specially designed inners provide comfort and anti-odour properties. An outer sole which will grip to anything completes the package.
Plus, they are one of the few women’s boots available in half sizes too.

A pretty stylish pair of boots which don’t necessarily scream out “walker”. These are the “mid” version, meaning they have more ankle support than the Kimtah Event Low, which makes them boot more suitable for hill and fell walking.
Waterproof leather uppers and an outer sole with a surprising amount of grip makes for a great package.

The North Face Hedgehog Fastpack Lite
If you’d prefer a more running shoe feel than a traditional walking boot but still have grip and be waterproof, then the Hedgehog Fastpack Lite are for you.
Without doubt one of the lightest boots around, and possibly the most colourful too, these trainer-type boots still pack in Gore-Tex waterproofing and a Vibram sole.

Regatta Lady Northstar Winter Boot
They might be classed as a winter boot, and yes the Northstar has a fleece lining, but they’re not too warm it can’t be worn in spring or autumn – which is great because they are very good boots.
Stylish, but practical are the buzz words here… waterproof thanks to Isotex and the coating designed to make them easy to clean works well - and they have decent grip too.
At the moment they are seriously reduced too…

Asolo Futura GTX
Perhaps not a name well-known in the UK – but that’s sure to change.
These are serious walking boots for serious walkers. The one-piece 1.8mm suede leather upper and the waterproof Gore-Tex lining won’t let anything in and the hard rubber toe cap is added protection.
The sole is stunning; great grip and a self-cleaning system which adds to the grip. Good looking too.
