GEAR INSTITUTE - Best in Class - Women's Hiking Shoes
Oboz Bridger Bdry
The Oboz Bridger Bdry women’s hiking shoe proved to have the highest level of protection against trail hazards of any of the shoes contained in this side-by-side test. It’s thick wraparound outsole and tall technically designed directional lugs, combined with ample rubber toe and heel guards, made it the best shoe in this group for use on rugged rocky terrain. However, the Bridger’s stiffer outsole and heavier weight renders it inappropriate as a crossover shoe, for use trail running or bicycling.
