The Ahnu Sugarpine II WP is the lightest and most "street-styled" model in our hiking shoe review. There is a fair amount of cushioning in both the heel and the forefoot, making for a comfortable stride; however, the shoe is lacking in arch support, and the lacing system doesn't extend very far down the front. Combined with the soft sole makes this shoe great for light hikes and around town wear, but not rugged enough for longer excursions or for wearing with a pack. Look to our Editors' Choice winner, the Oboz Sawtooth Low BDry - Women's, for a burly shoe that can handle a variety of terrain and an overnight hike with a heavier pack.
