Vasque Talus WP sneakers The Best Hiking Shoe

For off-road walkers or day hikers

Winner: Vasque Talus WP

These "great" lightweight hiking boots had one tester raving that the waterproof Nubuck leather "keeps your feet dry and warm, even when they're fully submerged in water." The Vibram outsole offers "excellent grip" and "a sufficient amount of traction for all types of trails," and its women's-specific upper "hugs your feet nicely." ($150, vasque.com for stores)
