The first shoes I tried were the Merrell Women's Siren XCR Running Shoe (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003NEF8NO/), but they just weren't wide enough for the ball of my foot. I have a low volume foot with a normal heel, but also a bump on the outside of the balls of my feet. That gets rubbed and hurts unless I get a wide-enough toe box.
Salomons fit my low-volume feet well, including a wide toe box and a heel that doesn't let my foot swim, so my next pair was the Salomon Women's Ellipse GTX Work Boot: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZH2L04/. I don't know why they call it a work boot--it's a classic hiking shoe. I bought the Thyme/Asphalt/Dark Green color. IMO, the color is ugly. It is NOT the beige color it seems on my monitor--the main color is a greenish gray. Still, for a hiking shoe the color is less important than the fit, and these fit well. But they had a stiffer insole than my next shoe. My feet can be wimps when tired, and I wanted that extra cushion.
I bought a pair of the Salomon Women's Exit Peak Mid 2 GTX Lite Hiking Shoes (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LB4Y6A/) at the same time. I noticed that the Exits had a cushier insole than the Ellipses. In fact, they were so immediately comfy that I didn't want to take them off...for a little while, anyway. I'm used to a hiking shoe, not a mid-height boot with ankle support, and the ankle of the Exits started bothering me. A lot. I tried walking around without the top two tiers of laces done, because I *wanted* them to work out so much. The Foundation/Shrew/Light Moss is gorgeous, and like I said, the shoe itself is cushy and very pleasant to walk in--for my foot, anyway, but not my leg. I'm short, so it's possible that the back of the heel digs into my tendon in a way it wouldn't on a taller person. And maybe women used to ankle support won't be at all bothered.
Overall, I loved the Exits the most, but I think I'll have to send all three pairs back and look for the Salomon Exit 2 GTX Women's Low Hiking Shoe, which isn't available at Amazon as of this writing and in fact seems really scarce. Maybe Salomon is about to introduce a new line of waterproof hiking shoes. Let's hope! Good luck and good shopping.
