Review: Ahnu Sequoia II Hiking Shoes

October 27, 2012

As winter draws near, I am getting ready to put away my hiking shoes for the year. Luckily, I don’t have to do that quite yet because I am going to Boulder to visit my brother at the beginning of November and I am hoping to get in some hiking with ma mum!

I was recently sent* a pair of Ahnu Hiking Boots, Sequoia II to try on and test out. Read on to learn all about my experience with them so far.

Short and Sweet

These extremely comfortable hiking shoes fit true to size and help support your feet during a hike or just a busy day of walking around. The Vibram bottoms complete the shoes grip to the ground. It’s amazing, no slipage! If you are looking for a solid ladies hiking shoe, check it out!

Ahnu Sequoia II Review

I must admit, my hiking isn’t hardcore. I don’t tend to go to large mountains and just start climbing (I would love to do that but I am limited by the lack of Mountains in Minnesota). So my experience with these shoes are not taken to the “max.” However, when walking with these shoes I noticed how extremely comfortable they were. I was able to go further because of the¬†cushioning. And, to be honest, I feel like I could just wear these everyday (though I doubt they are professional enough).

As I walked through our local hiking area, I noticed how much grip or “gription” I had. I never once felt like I was wearing regular tennis shoes. I loved the feeling and the confidence they brought me.

I would recommend anyone try these shoes as they are very comfortable and that is one of my upmost concerns when hiking. Here or in the mountain regions of Colorado!

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Vibram Outsole
  • True to Size
  • Easy to put on

Cons

  • Cost
  • Color Options

Overall Feelings

If you are looking for a lightweight, comfortable hiking boot this one is for you. Ahnu markets this shoe towards a “lightweight hiker” and I couldn’t agree more. If you are a looking for something a little more “hardcore,” check out their website!
