I am taking my girlfriend to Alaska next summer, for about three weeks. She is not been to Alaska and is not particularly outdoorsy. None the less there will be a bunch of day trips where I want her to be comfortable. Thus, I am looking for recommendations for a woman's boot that is waterproof and light in weight, yet can handle what we find in Alaska. Of course, I want to get this for her now so she is not breaking it in as the trip gets close, in time.
She like hiking shoes but for this trip, I think a boot is a good idea. I am thinking about something like a Lowa Renegade, Salomon Quest 4d or Keen Targhee. Thought? Thanks for the input.
