Hey guys! I went on some epic hikes in Zion National Park in Utah. This video has footage of Angels Landing, probably the most beautiful hike I've ever been on. In the video I review the boots my girlfriend and I wore on our hiking vacation in Utah. Lowas aren't cheap, but they performed well and were very comfortable. It's hard finding women's hiking boots that come in wide sizes, but Lowa offers it. We hiked for days and had no issues.

+Gore-Tex, waterproof and breathable
+wide sizes
+stability
+good traction
+comfortable

-some people mentioned they don't last long. Through my personal experience, if you take care of your gear it'll take care of you. I never leave boots in the car to bake in the hot sun. I clean dirt and mud off them after use because the bud could dry the leather. I pick out the pebbles that get logged in between the lugs on the out sole. Just some real basic stuff and haven't had issues with any quality boots.

I'm on my second pair of Lowa Renegades and I thought the first pair wore well. I hike about 60 or 70 days a year and they lasted several years before they had small de-laminataions and the soles began to slip on steep on steeper descents. They are the only boots I have ever owned that don't scream "take me off" at the end of a hike. Sometimes I forget and drive home in them, they are that comfortable. I'm size 10.5 standard width.
And.... yes, I very much enjoyed Angel's landing, especially the parts where they have a metal cable to grab on the narrow parts of the trail.
