Why is finding the right women’s hiking shoes for women such a lengthy experience? Or is it just me?
I’ve been researching, studying up the different types of walking shoes, hiking shoes, all-terrain shoes, etc… for ages.

Columbia Hiking Shoes for Woman
Because I’ve had some seriously bad experiences where the shoes don’t breathe properly, and you can only take so much until your feet totally overheat and start to form blisters.
I’ve tried several different brands, but one I keep coming back to is Columbia.
I mainly love Columbia’s outdoor clothing and outdoor gear, so this time around I decided to go for the hiking shoes.
First of all from the second, I put them on, they were contoured to my foot.
This has been a huge issue for me with all my other shoes. It almost became a norm for me to first get blistered up and bloody before the shoes and I become friends.
They are super light.
And living in Guatemala, waterproof shoes are not a luxury, but a downright necessity. And these shoes fill the bill.
Plus, they are super affordable, under $90.
