Buying Tips for hiking shoes

Just a bit of advice about buying hiking shoes for heading out on the trail. Make sure your scout or yourself has the information to make a good purchase.

Give yourself plenty of time to find the right pair.

Should also try on shoes later in the day when you have been on your feet all day. Feet swell throughout the day.

I had a nightmare of a time with my feet at Philmont. I had blisters on the heel bottom and the area just behind the middle toe on both feet. I had the waterproof high-top leather boots. These boots are great for me on weekend hikes but didn’t work well at Philmont. I really hate getting my feet wet from the morning dew, but I think my next boot will be a high-top non-waterproof trail runner.

In addition to blisters I also had numbness on my big toes. This lasted many month after Philmont so don’t be alarmed if you notice these symptoms. I think I had those toes slamming into the toe box as described in the video.

Of course a lighter back is also a plus. My pack had too many things that were never used.
