It’s been about a month since I received my Wolverine Hikers, size 9 1/2 in Women’s. I’ve had lots of compliments on the hot pink color, which I love! I injured my toe a few months back and these shoes have been excellent for support and comfort for my big toe. I feel like they really protect it while I’m hiking up in the woods and just working around the house,raking and what not. I especially love the tread on them while I’m hiking. It provides good footing when climbing up rough trails and rocks. It’s nice to know I probably won’t slip while wearing them! It was raining over at Long Pond in Cornish, Maine, but my son and I decided to walk our new dog around the pond anyway to see if he’d like the water. My Wind Hikers were great, they didn’t slip at all while I was taking the dog down one of the rocks off the trail there. Because of the mesh on the shoes, they can get wet and dry quickly after. I love that too! I’m putting them through the paces and they look great still. A bit dirty but holding up great!
Wolverine Impact Wind Hiker Review
I received the Impact Trail Hiking Shoes for review purposes from Wolverine. The shoes are 9.5, a perfect fit, and came in the color Pink Rose, which I love! I tried the shoes on and headed off to take a hike down the beach with them. They were rugged enough for the wet beach and I loved the tread for climbing on the rocks. I’ve also been wearing them out around my house to walk the dog and bring in some wood. Again the wonderful tread on them is just what I needed for it all!
Living in Southern Maine, means that spring is just now trying to start, and we’ll have another month or so of unpredictable weather – usually lots of rain and mud. The daytime temperatures are climbing in to the 50F range during the day, but still below freezing most nights.
Here are the details from the Wolverine website:
Wolverine Women’s Impact Wind Hiker Style: W20176
Breathable mesh upper with molded TPU stabilizing heel support. Moisture managing mesh lining. Performance arch footbed with NXT® odor control sockliner. Compression molded EVA midsole. Slip-resistant lug outsole. Cement construction. Light flex.
Women’s Sizes M 5 – 10, 11 W 5 – 10
In the coming months, I’ll be wearing them as my main outdoor shoe, hiking, walking and hopefully more walks on the beach. Stop back to see how we’re doing in a month or so.
