How to choose the best trekking shoes?
The field of practice: When you’re trekking in the mountains, you need a pair of shoes that will provide you support at the ankle. Therefore, buy shoes that support your ankle.
The Duration: If your hike is less than 3 hours, shoes with heel cushioning will suffice you. For trekking for over 3 hours, you’ll need shoes that offer full cushioning.
Support: Depending on the fragility of your ankles, you can choose a high-stemmed shoe for better support, or low-stem if you prefer the freedom of movement.
Weather Conditions: There are different ways to categorize the shoe-wear that works for each weather condition. Whether you're into sunny days only, or out to enjoy nature regardless of conditions, consider these features:
For snow or rain, ensure you are looking at shoes that are waterproof shoes to eliminate the chances of getting feet wet mid-hike.
