Scarpa Women's Baltoro Lady GTX
Fit for purpose!
These boots are excellent. There are loads on the market to choose from so I did wonder whether it was worth buying top of the range, to get good quality. I hadn't bought any walking boots before, but have been delighted with my choice and the fact that they were the most reasonable in price. I've just come back from the Isle of Skye on a walking holiday and wore them everyday so needed comfort. They feel stout but are surprisingly lightweight to wear, waterproof when they need to be, but most importantly, have a bit of pink on them to add a bit of bling......

My first boot
This is my first boot and I was looking primarily for a water proof and comfortable shoe. It's certainly water proof although after six good walks on northumberland I am getting a blister.
Fairly easy to clean, good tread and I love the colour stripes. I like the ankle support and laces smart - they don't undo and I do t even need to double knot.

Great support yet as comfortable as slippers!
I bought these ladies Baltoro GTX Scarpa walking boots, as my husband has been walking since the summer in the men's Baltoro Scarpa boots and has been very impressed with their comfort and performance.
I needed a supportive walking boot for the Yorkshire Moors and Lakeland Fells, which are comfortable, yet strong and, of course, waterproof!
If my husband's boots are anything to go by, I will not be disappointed.
Also, the colour of the women's boot, is fortunately different from the men's boot, so there will not be a 'mix-up'!
I have already recommended these boots to a few of our friends.

I bought these boots just before doing the 3 peaks challenge. I didn't have much time to break them in before we left and probably only wore them for a couple of hours before heading to the first mountain. I was a bit worried I would have blisters etc from not wearing them in properly but they fit like a glove and not one blister. No sore feet, kept my feet bone dry and absolutely no rubbing. These were absolutely amazing boots and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Comfortable and pink!
I did what you are not supposed to do and tried these out for the first time on three days of tough mountain hikes in Snowdonia. They stood up to the job very well and were very comfortable, even though I hadn't broken them in. I like the nice solid feel and the pink trim. They did feel rather hot, though, in the very hot weather.
