Whether you're looking for a lightweight, highly water resistant day hiking boot for the trail or just something rugged and dependable that you can wear around the backyard for general utility work and play, Timberland's White Ledge Waterproof Mid Hiking Boot for women is a step up from ordinary sneakers and boots–with the benefits associated with both types of footwear. Beneath the Women's White Ledge Waterproof Mid Hiking Boot is Timberland's B.S.F.P. active lug outsole. This acronym stands for “Braking, Supporting, Flexing and Propelling.” What it all means is that Timberland aligned the sole lugs to optimize support, traction and ergonomic flex, so you enjoy increased comfort and agility compared to most general boot designs. One more important note: If you read Timberland's customer reviews, you might find a few people taking issue with the word waterproof in the White Ledge product name. While the boot's seam-sealed construction is ideal for hiking through dew-kissed meadows or camping in the rain, like the waterproof light hiking boots made by other companies, Timberland's White Ledge not a perfect choice for sloshing around in water deep enough to seep into the tongue gussets. If you prefer wet outdoor weather in moderation, you'll be satisfied with the comfort, traction and stability offered by the White Ledge Waterproof Mid Hiking Boot for women.
