The best option for hiking
Women's trekking boots are simply the most suitable for hiking. At least, hiking of a certain demand, that is: the one practiced on narrow and stony roads, where the slopes are steep both on the climb and on the descent, with the presence of roots, fruits of trees and many other irregularities in the terrain. Slippery rocks, muddy puddles and even snow in winter are situations for which these models are well prepared.
They are the best option for two main reasons: on the one hand, they are the ones that will most help you maintain your balance and, on the other, they are the ones that will best protect your foot. This is a sturdy, high-top shoe with a very tight design. Most of them have a waterproof treatment, which means that it makes it much more difficult for water to pass inside the boot.
The sole is another key element in women's trekking boots: it is firm and thick so that the sole does not feel the edges and irregularities mentioned above. But despite their firmness, they are made of a type of rubber, with reactive properties that provide cushioning. As far as the face in contact with the ground is concerned, its design is rich and deep, with studs that provide a correct adhesion to the floor both on climbs and descents.
In addition, the materials used are certainly harder and more resistant, from water-repellent laces to metal pins and eyelets, not to mention the tab, the seams and any other element.
And, as experienced hikers are well aware, the great benefit of trekking boots is the support of the ankle. If fastened securely, the ankle will not twist when a fall occurs, a more common throw than it may seem. Therefore, it is one of the most effective types of “anti-sprain” footwear.
Trekking shoes, on the other hand, are presented as a good choice for those who make lighter and less demanding hikes, but they cannot be considered a replacement for boots, since they do not provide the aforementioned ankle protection. The same goes for trekking sandals.
Differences between women's and men's trekking boots
The models present in Women's Trekking Boots have, of course, very different characteristics compared to men's boots. First, they are wider at the front of the foot and narrower at the back, adapting to female anatomical features.
On the other hand, the design is usually somewhat more sophisticated, at least when it comes to color. If male models tend to be reduced to black, gray and earth tones (green, ochre, khaki, etc.), in the case of women, others such as maroon, red, violet, etc. appear in the case of women, such as maroon, red, violet, etc.
For the rest, nothing changes and they have the same qualities and qualities as in male models. The suede pieces on the outside, the padded tabs and the premium features that we discussed in previous paragraphs (waterproof, water-repellent laces, reactive soles, etc.).
Accessories for a trekking outfit
Women's trekking boots are probably the fundamental element of a hiking outfit, but not the only one. In fact, we recommend the use of one that is closely linked to the boots: high socks, which reach or even exceed the middle part of the shin and have a stronger thickness than usual. This will prevent the appearance of unwanted chafing.
With these boots, the use of trekking pants is also recommended, with a slightly looser hem than that of street or sports models. This clearance allows the upper part of the boot to be covered by the bottom of the pants, providing another layer of protection against moisture or against the snags suffered by laces on the lower branches, for example.
