There are so many options for all kinds of women’s hiking boots, and the choice of footwear available is quite staggering.
Whether you’re going backpacking or hiking through the mountains, hiking boots should have great ankle and foot support. The soles of the boots should have a lug pattern that gives the hiker better stability and traction. You should be considering where you’ll wear the boots to understand what features you’ll find important. For example, a hike through the mountains, such as Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, means you’ll need to have ankle stability for the changing terrain.
Four years ago I had a horrible ankle injury ; I broke the bone while I was skiing, and ever since then I feel pain in my ankle whenever the weather changes, or whenever I walk for longer than a couple of hours. My orthopedist always advises me to avoid shoes that are not comfortable, no matter how good they look.
