Beginner Hiking Boots/Shoes

Recently started hiking and I need better footware. I'm not looking to spend a lot of money but anywhere from $100-130 preferred, also from REI if possible! Thank you!

I like Merrell. Can you go wrong with a cheap pair of Merrells? I don't think so. They have a ton of styles under $100. Probably wouldn't bother with boots. Go for it!

If you're aware of the benefits of barefoot/minimalist shoes and are willing to take the time to strengthen your feet the Vibram Five Fingers are excellent, and they have ones with thicker soles for more protection. I always do long hikes in Five Fingers.

I love the brand ON I just ordered a pair of trail shoes and I love them! They are lightweight and breathable and have an awesome tread for traction #onrunning #runonclouds

La Sportiva Hiking Boots for Women are great! I've hiked the Grand Canyon 3 times in mine and they have held up very well. I have a narrow foot with a slight high arch so they hug my foot and provide the support that I need for both long and short hikes.

I love my Hoka hiking boots. They are super light weight and comfortable.

Plus one for Salomon. I got mine from REI and went with the high top version for better protection from the wetness we experience in the PNW.

I'm a Keen Fan, wide toe box, good traction, and good ankle support without rubbing.

I love my Merrell Moab 2 boots. They are super comfortable straight out of the box! I picked mine up from REI.

I REALLY like my Vasque Breeze. Normally they're a little more spendy than you're looking for but I happen to see they are on 50% off sale right now at REI:
Heck, *I* should get an extra pair.

Wmns Pegasus Trail 2 Gore-Tex these are by far my favorite shoes I've ever ordered online. They fit perfectly (I'm 1 7.5).
