Choosing the correct sports shoe
1. If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit Don’t Wear It
I know this sounds like common sense, but you would be surprised at some of the mistakes people often making when choosing footwear. The shoes must fit your foot but they also need to be breathable and flexible. A good tip to remember is to buy your shoes towards the end of the day as this will compensate for swelling, which happens quite often while exercising. hiking.
2. Prevent blisters
There is nothing worse than sweaty feet! But then again, blisters are no tramp in the park either! Therefore, you must pick the right sock –it cannot be too thick, because your feet really need to breath. Your socks should not be too thin or you will not have the type of cushion you need to protect you from the impact and possible abrasions caused by your shoes. Running socks or any light-weight hiking socks will do just fine.
