Hiking shoes: make your trip unforgettable
With a good pair of hiking shoes you can make your trip or vacation unforgettable. Most walking shoes need to be worn a little, but after that the holiday can begin. You can use the hiking boots well in the Netherlands and in the rest of the world.
By buying the right walking shoes you prevent tired and poorly supported feet and you keep it full longer to complete your tour. A hiking shoe is a personal choice. One person prefers a low walking shoe and another prefers a higher shoe.
A higher walking shoe supports your ankles more and is certainly recommended if you have to climb a lot of hills or mountains. A low shoe is good for the walks in the Netherlands or the Nijmegen Four Days Marches.
It is also important if you are planning to cross small streams or perhaps walk in the rain, that the shoe is well waterproof with for example Gore-Tex.
