I'm looking for a women's winter hiking boot / trail shoe. Specifications inside..
I've searched previous AskMes but found only questions regarding women's stylish winter footwear
or snow boots
, neither of which I'm looking for (although there were some good suggestions in those threads.)
I wore these very comfortable but too-breathable-for-winter Merrells
on a short hike yesterday and my toes were freezing, despite my smartwool socks. I live in a place where it gets much colder than yesterday's 25 degrees, so I need something warmer.
1. I'm looking for something more like a trail shoe, just amped up for winter. I don't need
ankle support but I'm not opposed to an ankle boot, especially as I'll probably be using cramp-ons with them sometimes.
2. They need to be very warm. I have knee-high Sorrels for sledding and super-snowy activities, and I would love if these were comparable in warmth.
3. They do not need to be pretty. I'll be wearing them outside with my my dogs, mostly.
4. Waterproof would be ideal.
5. Under $200.
Thank you so much!
