Feel sure-footed when you're out on the trails when you grab a pair of the best hiking boots for women from Academy Sports + Outdoors. Most feature rubber outsoles for grippy traction even on slippery paths in the woods. Many of the options feature pretty feminine detailing, so you can look cute even when you're roughing it. Some of the women's waterproof hiking boots feature waterproof nylex linings, PU-coated leather or hydrophobic technology to help repel water and keep your feet dry in damp and muddy conditions. Others feature waterproof suede leather uppers with breathable bootie membranes and nylon mesh underlays that provide cooling and air movement, so outside water doesn't get in, yet sweat can escape, keeping your feet comfortable, even after trekking up mountain paths all day. Pair these boots with a comfortable pair of hiking socks.
If you want a stable and confident stride on the hiking path, but don't want to wear a large clunky boot all day, check out the low hiking boots or hiking shoes available at Academy Sports + Outdoors. These low shoes feature comfortable EVA midsoles and will give you better traction on the trails than regular shoes, yet provide you with a lighter weight and more flexible wear than traditional hiking boots.
