Just a few years ago, hunting boots for women were nearly non-existent.
Though they can still be hard to find on retail shelves, the selection of hunting boots for women has greatly improved.
Gender aside, any hunter will tell you how important properly fitting boots are. Now, women no longer need to settle for ill-fitting men's or youth-sized hunting boots.
You may have to take to the Internet to find them, but here are the eight best hunting boots for women on the market.
1. Under Armour Brow Tine 800 gram Primaloft Insulation Boots
Under Armour is arguably leading the way when it comes to high-quality hunting apparel for women. Their Brow Tine 800 gram boots are proof.
These boots are made with GORE-TEX to keep your feet dry while allowing sweat to escape and exclusive UA Scent Control technology to keep you undetected.
Weighing just 26 ounces, these lightweight hunting boots for women provide protection for even the roughest terrain.
2. Irish Setter VaprTrek 400 gram Primaloft Insulation Waterproof Boots
With a removable, high-rebound foam footbed, the Irish Setter VaprTrek boots are anatomically engineered for comfort.
