Here's what other sites are saying:

The women's Vasque Monolith Mid WP hiking boots feature EVA footbeds and midsoles that cushion your feet on rocky trails, while waterproof UltraDry keeps you dry all the way back to the trailhead.


The feeling of looking back on the peak you just conquered is indescribably awesome, and Vasque's Monolith UltraDry Women's Hiking Boot is built to make that feeling of indefatigable accomplishment that much easier to achieve. The Vasque Monolith rubber sole makes short work of all types of trails, while the EVA footbed and molded midsole keep your feet comfortable through everything from easy early morning trail jaunts to calf-melting 20 milers. Vasque also included a TPU stabilizer shank for a solid feel on uneven terrain and added a mid-height ankle to balance stability, flexibility, and weight. Topping off the whole package is Vasque's UltraDry waterproof and breathable membrane, which protects against afternoon thunderstorms and morning mud puddles with style and grace.
