Mariette Beaudoin. Hiking. April 27th , 2018.
Personally I prefer a good solid boot without anything too fancy. But really it is a case of experimenting with your preferences and trying on a few different styles and brands until you‘re happy with your choice. Once you‘ve got them spend a bit of time hiking regularly while breaking them in and soon enough you‘ll have a pair of hiking boots that will almost feel as though they‘re a part of your feet.
Why would anyone want to spend five months walking from Mexico to Canada? Most through-hikers get asked that question over and over. It‘s like asking a mountain climber why do you climb mountains. For me it started when I was active in the singles group of my church in Manhattan Beach a suburb of Los Angeles. Jason one of the class members started leading monthly hikes for the group usually in the Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains just north of Los Angeles.
Another very important piece of hiking gear that you should never forget to have is a pair of hiking boots or shoes. A lot of people do not realize that wearing hiking boots or shoes instead of the ordinary sneakers or sandals is not only comfortable but will also keep a hiker safer. Since hiking shoes are specially designed for hiking terrains they protect your feet and ankles from possible injuries in case the trail is slippery or a little rough for hiking. In case of a slight fall or slip the toughness and good design of these shoes or boots can keep you safe and make hiking on rough terrains much easier too.
So you want to go hiking and therefore you need to understand what hiking gear you will need to take with you. The stores are full of lots of gear for hiking that they want to sell you. However here are the main things you need to consider when deciding what hiking gear you need.
