Frequently asked questions

Answering your frequently asked questions on women's hiking shoes.

What is the difference between hiking shoes and running shoes?

Hiking shoes are built to handle tough terrain, whilst running shoes are built for going the distance on smoother terrain. You’ll find that hiking shoes have more tread on the bottom, allowing for enhanced grip on tricky terrains such as loose shingle, slippery rocks and muddy tracks. The sole tends to be thicker also, which prevents any sticks or stones from getting through the shoe, and absorbs more of the impact as you wear them for longer periods. One of the last key differences is that hiking shoes tend to come above the ankle, providing increased support. On the other hand, running shoes are much more lightweight and less suited to tough terrain. 

Is it OK to wear running shoes for hiking? 

If you want to wear running shoes for hiking, you can. However, you may experience a few downsides to that choice such as less ankle support, less traction and less long-term durability. On the plus side, running shoes are a lot more lightweight, helping you move at a faster pace. If you are hiking on relatively flat, looked-after terrain in dry weather - you may be able to get away with wearing running shoes, but specialist hiking boots tend to be more comfortable.
