When I bought my current pair of hiking boots, the brand/style I tried on and liked was out of stock in the womens version, so the storeperson offered me the mens ones instead. I tried them, liked them, and have used them for hiking ever since. They are incredibly comfortable and provide a ton of ankle support.
So I can't help but wonder: did I miss out on anything by not getting the women's version? In what way would they be "better" for me as a woman?
