Eclipse on the sun.

New England weather has a propensity for changing in the blink of an eye, so when you're thru-hiking part of the Appalachian Trail, it's important to prepare for anything under the sun and maintain a sense of happy feet with the Salomon Women's Ellipse 2 Mid Leather GTX Hiking Boot. Built with an ultra rugged leather, suede, and mesh upper, the Ellipse 2 features a waterproof yet breathable Gore-Tex membrane that keeps your foot's microclimate extra jubilant while a rugged toe and heel cap protects your feet from loose rocks, wayward roots, and the occasional, diabolic trail bunny. In addition to its waterproof qualities, this hiking boot is equipped with a rugged Contagrip sole that keeps you on your feet, as well as a injected EVA midsole and Ortholite sockliner that provides ample comfort and support throughout the course of your hike.

I bought these for my wife. She really like them for wt. The size in foot length was good but after wearing them in the house for a day she felt that they were too narrow and would cause problems as the day progressed if doing a lot of hiking. So we had to return them.
