Jennifer Garner and Victor Garber Hiking

Spring has hit most areas in the northern hemisphere and it’s time to get out and enjoy it. Although a lot of people can get away with a simple pair of sneakers but for people who want to get serious about their hiking or who may have foot issues and need the support a good pair of hiking shoes or boots is essential.

If a hiking boot seems like too much of a commitment to you, many shoe manufacturers are now coming out with all terrain sandals that give you a more sturdy sole than the traditional sandal and many of them provide a bit more foot coverage and protection. These sandals aren’t great for traipsing through ground cover that may contain poison ivy or other irritants but in a lot of situations they’re just fine and much cooler for hot and wet climates.

For those people that go hiking on smooth terrain that isn’t very difficult to navigate there is a shift in walking and exercise footwear all prompted by the Skechers Shape Ups. A number of different brands are hitting the market with rocker heels or some built in instability in the soles to encourage muscle reactions where there typically were not any. Any of these brands would be a good investment as you will get a little more out of your workout without really noticing, but don’t expect dramatic results, the results are subtle at best.
