By combining a lightweight leather and nylon upper, a dual-density EVA platform and a durable trail-gripping outsole, Danner has created what our tester felt is the perfect everyday hiking boot for women.

We found this to be a quality, durable hiking boot, and the affordable price makes it an attractive option for recreational outdoors enthusiasts.


XtraTuf Chumrunner xtratuf_chumbrunner_thumb.jpg

This casual and stylish boat shoe is comfortable to wear; combining breathable mesh and neoprene to make a performance boat shoe. The shoe is comprised of Nubuck leather uppers and a Chevron non-slip and non-marking sole.

Muck Boots Woody Sport Cool muckbootswoodysportcool_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $164.95
Featuring new XpressCool fabric, the Woody Sport Cool is a hunting and fishing boot for all seasons. In warm weather the wicking qualities of the fabric draw moisture away from the skin. In the winter this same moisture-wicking technology protects feet from cold sweat, keeping them warm and dry.

Vasque Women’s Pow Pow UltraDry vasquepowpow_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $139.95 to $145.95
Built on the Venture sole, the eight-inch Pow Pow utilizes UltraDry waterproofing and 400 grams of 3M Thinsulate Ultra Insulation for extended comfort in harsh conditions, and the boot looks great, too! These boots are light and warm, and we think they make a good day-to-day boot in winter and on the ice.

Smartwool PhD Outdoor Heavy OTC smartwool_phd_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $26.95
The PhD Heavy OTC is designed to keep feet warm, dry and comfy, featuring two elastic bands to reduce slippage, thicker materials in areas with higher wear and tear and thinner materials in low-impact areas for increased breathability.

Fox River Her Field Women’s Socks foxriver_her_field_socks_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $8.99
These mid-calf-length socks were a real hit with our staff when fishing on colder days, when the water temperatures would dip beneath 40 degrees.

Farm to Feet Englewood Socks farmtofeet_englewoodsocks_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $23
This sock is quite dense, but not all that thick.  That’s good if your wading shoes are on the tight side. They provide good cushion and are made from Merino wool.


Heat Holders Socks heatholderssocks_thumb.jpg
MSRP: $15.99
These truly are warm, and they wick sweat well. Our tester wore them in 34-degree water in waders for most of a day and his feet didn’t get cold.
