Women's Trail Running & Hiking Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

You can wear your trail running shoes to the gym, but they aren’t ideal for all activities. Women’s trail shoes work fine for running on a treadmill or lifting weights. But you might find their weight and grip cumbersome for aerobic activities that involve pivoting and jumping. Also, once your trail runners get muddy, you might opt to save them for outdoor use.
Trail running shoes are made especially for the unique conditions of rugged off-road trails. In trail running, your foot movements are different than in road running. Pivots and zig-zag motions are common due to switchbacks, rocks, slopes, debris and mud. Women’s trail shoes have a thicker, lugged outsole to maintain traction on gravel and dirt and a protective upper to hold up to weather and debris. To learn more about trail shoes, take a look at our guide.
You may want to consider buying your trail running shoes a half-size bigger than your street shoe size. When you run, your toes are pushed closer to the end of the shoe. Feet also swell after long periods of exercise. But you still want a snug fit for safety and support on the terrain. Aim for a snug fit at the midfoot and heel, with some room in the toe box to spread and wiggle your toes comfortably. This may be a half-size bigger, but everyone is different.
