I'm looking for a pair of women's hiking shoes with a wider toe box. I currently have a pair of Salomon OUTline Low GTX hiking shoes which fit well except that my toes feel scrunched and I've been getting blisters. Any recommendation for a different shoe I can try?
@sarahlg thanks so much for reaching out! Many models from Salomon tend to run slightly on the more narrow side, so you might check out a pair of day hikers from Merrell, Keen or Lowa as all 3 brands typically run a bit wider. Specifically:
We hope this helps get you started, recognizing that footwear can be difficult to fit virtually and may require a visit to your local REI store!
Totally agree, Altras did not work for me - even with Superfeet insoles. I also took a couple of bad falls in them, in one case injuring myself pretty badly.
The Merrill Moab is a good choice since they can be ordered in wide sizes. I have had two pairs of the low cut style. I also have Vasque low and mid boots which can be ordered in wide sizes. These are bit less flexible but still comfortable.
I also wear very thick Thorlo socks since I have tender feet.
My adventures take me on hikes from 5-15 miles. I have not had blisters in any of these shoes.
