Shoes, Shoes, Shoes…

October 31, 2015

Here are a few quick reminders when thinking about shoes for the outdoors of Alaska this winter!

Find a shoe that is specific for the activity you are doing. Running shoes are for running, not hiking. Hiking shoes are not always for wet terrain. Make sure you think about and research what activities you will be enjoying and then talk with someone at the store you will be purchasing from.

This will help you avoid blisters from the movement!

Socks. Wear the right socks! Wool is great if you are typically cold, and synthetic and blends are great for those who tend to be more on the warm side.  Also, you will want to make sure that the socks you are wearing fit snug around your foot with seams that lie flat.

Inserts might be needed to stabilize your foot and help with the arch and support it needs.

Again, these are just a few quick reminders – but always good ones!
