What should I be looking for when choosing hike & trail shoes?

- Toe guards at the front of your shoes, and hidden plates underfoot for protection from roots and rocks
- Sturdy materials used for uppers and overlays for protection against brush and thorns
- Resilient cushioning for the middle of your feet to absorb footfalls during steep descents and hard landings on rock slabs

Here at Anaconda, we offer a wide variety of hike & trails shoes from a number of different manufacturers including such brands as Merrell, Hi-Tec and Adidas, in sizes from 5 right through to 11, with many half sizes featured as well. It is very important to get the size of your hike & trail shoes right: too small and they will chafe and cause blisters and hurt your feet, too large and your feet will be slipping around in them, making it more likely that you will trip and fall.
What else should I know about womens hike & trail shoes?
Some shoes will include panels of material that will enable your feet to breathe more easily, which can be a great bonus if you are travelling in hot climates. These panels are usually made from mesh and can be situated in various places on the upper of the shoe. Make sure you pair them with cotton socks, to allow air to circulate around your feet for maximum comfort. Another thing to keep in mind is the weight of your shoes, not only for when you are carrying them around but also for when you are actually wearing them. If your hike & trail shoes are heavier than the shoes you are normally used to wearing, it is advisable to get used to them gradually over a period of time, to avoid aching feet and leg muscles during your trip.
