The Arc’teryx Acrux FL GTX Approach Shoe for women is a comfortable, durable, and supportive option that works well as a do-it-all option between a hiking boot and a lightweight approach shoe. Even though this shoe would not work well for those with wide feet or climbers who consistently climb in wet conditions, this approach shoe is a good middle-of-the-road choice.
The Scarpa Mojito Shoe for women is sturdy and durable enough for approaches or short day hikes, yet stylish enough to wear around town with just about any outfit; in short, a perfect shoe for those who value versatility. Simply built, there is little that can wear out, and yet the shoe is surprisingly lightweight and easily packable. While more effective approach shoes do exist, (at much the same price) and there are certainly more supportive hiking shoes available, there is no denying the bomber construction and supreme versatility of the Mojito, and for that reason, it remains a crowd favorite.
The La Sportiva Boulder X Approach Shoe for women is an all-around approach, hiking, and light climbing shoe. The versatility and support are great for those interested in a comfortable and supportive shoe that is proficient in approaches, scrambling, hiking, and some light slab/crack climbing.
