Women's Walking Shoes

Our range of women’s walking shoes are a great alternative to heavier walking and hiking boots during the warmer and drier spring and summer months. Walking shoes are also a great option for sturdy and reliable day to day footwear, offering the comfort and durability of outdoor performance footwear, with the subtlety and styling of everyday shoes.

Women's hiking and walking shoes come in a variety of styles to suit the specific needs walking trails, approaches to hill walking routes and even more athletic pursuits such as scrambling. We have put together a range of walking shoes with styles and features which cater for a variety of terrain and weather conditions.

Things to consider when choosing a pair of walking shoes:-

  • Lightweight mesh uppers vs. more protective leather uppers
  • Waterproof and breathable liners
  • Water repellent treatments
  • Shanks for added stability
  • Toe and heel protection
  • Shock absorbing soles
  • Padded collars and tongues
  • Vibram soles

Although walking shoes are not comparable to walking boots in terms of performance, they do have some advantages.

The Pros of walking shoes
Walking shoes are very lightweight, meaning that they can be easily packed into a bag. Perhaps the biggest benefit of their lightweight construction is that they will allow you to stay agile while wearing them.

They typically demonstrate good breathability and flexibility so are a great choice for optimum comfort for walks on easy going terrain. This means where terrain permits you will be fresher using lighter footwear rather than standard walking boots and your feet can breathe more easily.

The cons of walking shoes

Walking shoes have little or no ankle support, so when carrying heavy loads they offer your ankle less protection and they are more vulnerable to being turned. Likewise the lack of ankle support means they are vulnerable to abrasions as you walk and especially where scree or rocks are likely to move.

In addition to this, waterproofing and insulation are limited in most walking shoes due to their collar height and lightweight composition. Remember even waterproof lined shoes are only waterproof as high as their collar, so ankle deep means wet feet!
