HH Women's Razora Mid HT Boots Review

When Helly Hansen gave us the opportunity to test the woman’s variant on the Razora Mid HT boot, how could we resist?

Having put the Men’s Razora Mid HT Boot through it’s paces in early 2014, we were intrigued to see whether the women’s variant would stand-up to the same level of scrutiny.

Helly Hansen have such a broad range of clothing, equipment and footwear across many disciplines, we were rather skeptical prior to testing the Men’s Razora Mid HT boot and approached them with some trepidation.  However, within a very short period of time all our fears were allayed.

At first glance the woman’s boot appears to be a facsimile of its male counterpart; fully waterproof, protection in all the right places and lashings of premium quality leather and suede to add to that trail appeal.  Helly Hansen class the Razora Mid HT boots as a “Next generation hiking shoe for woman.”  Of that, there’s no doubt!

Considering the materials and construction it’s somewhat of a surprise as to just how light the Razora Mid HT boots are, making them the ideal companion for brisk hiking without getting bogged down in heavy kit.  There’s a big fat layer of support built into the Razora Mid HT in the form of Helly Hansen’s ergonomically shaped insole, coupled with their C-Zone shock absorption technology; it really takes the bump out of boulders and rough terrain.

Sprinkle a little of Helly Hansen’s H2Flow system on top which ensures when things get tough you don’t overheat and you’ve a recipe fit for a King; or in this case, a Queen.  Like the Men’s Razora boots, the sole provides excellent grip across a variety of terrain, without being too soft so high mileage won’t be a problem.
