Pictured below are the Women’s Ahnu Montara Hiking Boot from REI. Regular price: $160 (on sale for $110)
IDEO side size: Women’s 11
non-IDEO side size: Women’s 9
Pros: fits true to size, comfortable, is not a men’s shoe (yay!), stylish, light-weight, fairly wide toe box, non-bulky/boxy, breathable, waterproof, & easy to get the IDEO inside (use a shoe-horn).
Cons: REI doesn’t let you split sizes so I had to purchase the pair in both 9 and in 11 to make it work. Oh well, I think these will last a long time so I consider this a good purchase!
Here is another picture of how the Ahnu boots look on as well as a Spring dress photo in my grey NB MT1210’s. Note: Though super cute, the black boots did not look good with the dress, so I think I will save the boots for jean outfits 🙂
