Hiking shoes for women

If you're looking to hit the trials on the warmer spring days, you'll need good hiking shoes to accompany it. Although temperatures are still cool and there's still snow and muck on the ground in some places, we personally still can't wait to get outside for a hike. Whether you're gearing up for a spring camping trip, are prepping to trek out on a big hike or will be spending more time on some of your local pathways, a good hiking boot can really go a long way. And luckily, there are plenty of durable shoes on the market that are as practical as they are affordable.

Next to comfort and durability, another important factor to look out for in hiking boots is waterproofing. If your hiking climate is prone to any kind of inclement weather, you'll want to opt for waterproof boots to keep your feet dry and warm in any type of temperature. We've included plenty of waterproof options in our roundup so you can enjoy the outdoors year-round.

Hoka, Timberland, and Columbia are just a few of the athletic brands with a wide selection of outdoor-friendly footwear — perfect for any adventure while looking stylish. Ahead, shop ET's picks for the best hiking shoes. Plus, be sure to check out the best running shoes for women, and shop Khloé Kardashian's go-to workout shoes.
