The North Face has a surprisingly large and high quality selection of women’s shoes available now. There are hiking boots, trail running shoes, lifestyle shoes, and even sandals. There’s definitely something for everyone to fulfill any of their needs throughout the multiple seasons of the year.
Starting with women’s North Face hiking boots, there are some really nice, durable boots you’ll want to have if/when you’re trekking on some tough terrain or just out camping this summer.
The Women’s Ultra Hike II Mid Gore-Tex is ideal for technical hikes when you’re carrying a heavy pack. This waterproof Gore-Tex shoe features a supportive, internal cable cinch and a hiking specific midsole that features improved Ultra Protect Cradle Guide technology for better ankle stability.
The women’s Ultra Fastpack II is a lightweight, yet protective, shoe designed for fast pursuits on mostly hardpack terrain. The upper has embedded cables inside the mesh quarter panel that provide sleek, lightweight midfoot support. The upper is also welded for sleek support and weight savings. It’s rubberized toe cap and screens offer up toe and metatarsal-head protection.
This boot, like many North Face footwear styles, has collar lining that has FlashDry technology, which speeds up evaporative drying and helps accelerate the removal of moisture from the skin.
The women’s Storm II Waterproof boot will help you navigate technical terrain during backcountry excursions. It offers reliable cushioning and support. The waterproof leather and HydroSeal® construction seals out moisture when hiking through wet environments. Also note that it is crafted with Snake Plate™ and EVA Cradle™ technology in the midsole to protect your foot upon impact and stabilize your stride. Finally, it’s finished with a grippy Vibram® outsole that delivers stable footing over wet and dry terrain.
There are nearly two dozen various hiking boots for women to choose from, running from lightweight to heavier duty ones.
Trail Running Shoes
Make your transition from road to trails and all over with a pair of North Face trail running shoes. One such style in this category would be the Women’s Ultra Cardiac. This lightweight and flexible, yet protective workhorse is crafted with a wide platform for stability. There’s also the protective Vibram® soles with grippy tread for aggressive traction underfoot when charging uphill, and even an ample midsole cushioning to pad your feet on the way down.
It runs in bluebird/budding green, black/sweet violet, and rocket red/blue quartz, and sizes go from 5 to 11.
A more workout oriented shoe in this North Face category would be the Women’s Litewave Ampere Trainer shoe. Being especially built for training, this shoe provides a stable platform for squats and enhanced energy return for exceptional performance during dynamic workouts.
Lifestyle and Sandals
There are also mid and tall boots available under the lifestyle section to go along with the Bridgetone Mary Jane Canvas and a sporty outdoor flat like the Women’s Base Camp Lite Skimmer II.
As far as sandals go, you may not immediately associate a company like The North Face with that type of footwear; however, there are some great styles definitely worth picking up in time for the warmer days ahead. For instance, the Women’s Base Camp Plus ASYM is a lightweight flip flop crafted of water friendly materials like synthetic straps that’s perfect for you as you make your way down the boardwalks and along the shores.
