Today being my birthday I decided to treat my self to some new boots. I have always hiked in trail runners and cheap “light hikers”. About a year ago I bought a pair of asolo fugitive boots. I love the gor-tex and the support but they always pinched my pinky toes, I figured they need to be broke in. Not the case I think they were a half size to small. The first 2-3 miles are fine after that they kill me. So needless to say time for new boots.
Every boot I try on just doesn’t feel right. I tried on Scarpas but they were big and they only had two sizes smaller and who knows when they are going to place an order to restock them. So I think I am going to head back out tomorrow and see what I can find. I might just look into some waterproof mid/high light hikers. Well I guess I will go read some reviews and expand what I have been looking at hopefuly I will find something. I did pick up some trekking today at ems for 50% off. I have always wanted to try them out to see if I like them but never wanted to drop 80+ bucks on a pair so the sale worker out good, I’ll let you know what you think.
