First impressions

Hi-Tec Eurotrek Lite WP Womens boots are a rarity. You really don’t see too many decent leather boots with genuinely budget-friendly price tag available for women, but Eurotrek boots are exactly that – and if you shop around you can find them well south of their already very reasonable RRP.

These boots are also a rarity in another way – a leather hiking boot that is comfortable straight out of the box, that doesn’t require any breaking in.

On the trails

As already mentioned, on test we found these boots to be comfortable straight out of the box, which is a big tick for a leather boot. There’s good cushioning underfoot in the midsole, and this makes up for some of the heaviness.

Because, it has to be said, despite their name, the Eurotrek, really isn’t a barely-there boot. They weigh in at a fairly hefty 650g / 23oz, so your legs will fully notice that you are wearing these boots after a few hours of hiking.

The combination of leather and a waterproof membrane render the Eurotrek warm and waterproof enough to deal with tough wet ground, however, and that (along with the very wallet-friendly price) is one reason why it is recommended for youngsters doing the Duke of Edinburgh award in the UK. They’re also built to last.
