Whether you’re a weekend hiker or a die-hard hiking fan, you probably know how crucial it is to wear proper footwear while you’re walking across uneven footpaths.
Next to roasting marshmallows over a fire and fishing down at the lake, it’s hard to come up with a more iconic outdoor activity than hiking. There’s nothing quite like it – you wander quietly under the shades of tall trees, march across grasslands, and traverse rugged and rocky ground to finally make it to the top of a summit, where you can enjoy a mesmerizing view.
Depending on the terrain and the weather I like to have a good choice of hiking shoes, walking boots or trail running shoes for my many treks. As I am generally a fair weather hiker I have good experience in buying lightweight hiking shoes that I use all summer long.
Hiking is a wonderful way of exploring the great outdoors, and as I live in a city it refreshes me every weekend when I get out onto a hill and get in a decent long hike.
If I am walking the Camino in summer I use hiking shoes, and I usually take along minimalist sandals to wear in the evenings.
