Dunham Waffle Stomper Terrastryder Mid II - Light Hikers: Reviews

While all the shoes here are made specifically for women, we found that the Terrastryder's lower- volume forefoot, cushioned ankle, deep Achilles cutout, and sloping collar combined for the best fit of the bunch. It feels more like a sandal than a boot but still has bootlike stability, with a midcut height that prevents ankle rolls. Support is good for light-load hiking, and the cleatlike Vibram sole sticks to the slickest trails. www.dunhamfits.com

Bonus: It's available in varying widths for an even more precise fit.

Bummer: Oversize metal lace hooks at the ankle are awkward.
