Learn About Women's Boots & Outdoor Shoes
Adventuring outdoors doesn't mean sacrificing comfort or style. The latest women's boots & outdoor shoes from DICK'S Sporting Goods blend performance features with fashion-forward design.
Take on the elements with confidence. Go for the chic wintry style of fur-trimmed boots, or make a splash in colorful rubber boots. Suede and sheepskin boots help you cozy up in chilly temperatures, and hiking shoes are a lightweight alternative for the trail.
There's a boot for every adventure-and the key to making the most of your time outdoors is finding the one that's right for you:
- Casual Boots help you pull together just about any outfit. Stand out with faux-fur or sheepskin-lined boots or make a statement in a high-rise leather riding boot. Women's ankle boots are ultra-lightweight and perfect when paired with street wear.
- Women's Rain Boots are designed to be fully waterproof. Many of these boots are constructed with rubber to better take on the elements. For warmth, try rain boots lined with fleece.
- Snow & Winter Boots are fortified with insulation to protect you from the elements. Aggressive rubber outsoles offer traction on slick surfaces. Consult product information details on the level of warmth your boot will provide-this factor is typically denoted in grams.
- Women's Hiking Shoes promote traction and stability on uneven terrain. These boots should be lightweight, but constructed with abrasion-resistant materials. Responsive midsole padding provides support and cushion for long days on the trail.
Before making your selection, learn the basics of boot construction and find what makes a good women's duck boot.
The area of the midsole of your duck boot or outdoor shoe is the upper. This portion of the boot should be completely waterproof. Materials like rubber and full-grain leather are naturally waterproof, while suede and knits can be treated to seal out moisture.
Duck boots with an extended shaft help block out snow, while hiking boots with a gusseted tongue protect against dirt and debris. For breathability, try split-grain leather boots, which are paired with nylon for a lighter feel.
The outsole of your boot is typically made of rubber. Casual boots have an outsole pattern designed to aid in traction. Work, hunting and winter boots may come with lugs, which make it easier to trek through mud and snow.
The midsole of your boot should cushion and comfort. Look for a responsive material, like EVA.
