Take on miles of ups and downs in stride as you hike your way to the next horizon with the Merrell Women's Crestbound GTX Backpacking Boots. Waterproof, breathable, and super durable, these full leather boots are backed by a Gore Tex membrane to keep your feet dry when the trail turns wet and muddy. Their full grain leather upper is both durable and supportive making them great for backpacking. In addition to their supportive upper, they also feature an external instep and heel stability arm to protect against rolled ankles. The UniFly midsole makes for an intuitive trail feel without compromising the cushioning needed to navigate rocky terrain. Additional cushioning through the TrailProtect pad keeps your feet feeling lively at the end of high mileage days, and a Vibram sole ensures excellent traction that won't wear out anytime soon.
