What to put on legs in a campaign? Part 2. The easy Footwear footwear

- an important thing in any campaign. And any pokhodnik knows that in inconvenient footwear to trudge on the nature with a backpack, passing in day two tens kilometers - quite unpleasant occupation accompanied with constant discomfort. Therefore someone loves heavy boots, it is more convenient to someone gumboots, but, nevertheless, most of people (almost all girls without exception) prefers habitual sneakers in the city, gym shoes or low shoes.

2. Pay attention to a sole. It is good if it is relief, firm and rather thick. Categorically the footwear on a high heel is not suitable for a campaign, you will not pass in it also one day.

3. do not take footwear of type of sandals, slippers and sandals At all. If they are convenient at the dacha, then in a campaign thongs will be stirred and rub a leg, and, having descended from the flat road, you right there will strike fingers and heels about stones and roots.

Cost fluctuates within $70 - $250. They it is a little heavier city, but are made of strong material, the lacing is supported by metal klepka, the sole is stitched and has special drawing of a protector ( of Vibram ). Such footwear is more protected from water and mechanical damages, the upper bound usually passes slightly above (on ankle border that reduces danger of traumatizing by 30%). Often tracking boots are supported by the inserted metal or plastic designs. Inside there is a warm, moisture-holding layer of soft fabric which the special membrane from teflon ( of Gore - tex, Micro - tex and td enters.) . It is important to remember that tracking boots should not be worn in, safely buy those boots which fitted you in shop.
