Women's shoes for hiking and trail running

Hiking boots built to roam

Made for long walks in the woods and bucket-list mountain traverses. Cruise from trailhead to viewpoint and back again in grippy, supportive hiking shoes for women from Scarpa, Oboz, Salomon and more.

Cushioned footbeds easily handle high-mileage days. Sticky rubber soles and multi-directional lugs keep you upright on loose dirt and slick rocks. And when the forecast looks a little iffy, waterproof hiking shoes keep feet dry through sudden storms and muddy sections.

Hiking shoes and boots at MEC

Hiking boots offer ankle support and protection for covering gnarly terrain or carrying heavy loads. Tough construction stands up to trail hazards like sharp rocks and deep mud. Trail running shoes are less protective but much lighter, so they can be a good choice for speedy missions and FKT attempts.

Hiking shoes hit the sweet spot – tough enough for technical trails and light enough for all-day adventures. Low-cut hikers are lightweight and flexible, while mid-cut models offer more stability for uneven terrain.
