September 20, 2019

Are you planning on taking a hiking trip soon? Not sure what kind of shoes to pack? Well, you've come to the right place! At Sommerfeld Outfitters we have a wide variety of footwear to accommodate any adventure. Choosing the right footwear is essential to make sure your comfortable and versatile throughout the entire trip. Here are some common tips: 

Consider the different types.

Yes- not only are hiking shoes a type of footwear but there are also different types of hiking shoes! From low-cut to high-cut models each plays a different role depending on what type of trip you are taking. 

Know Your Fit.

Try them on! We can’t stress how important it is to try your shoes on before landing on a purchase. Hiking Boots should feel snug, but they should never feel uncomfortable. Another tip is to try them on with the socks you will be hiking in. 

Test them out. 

Before you plan on spending full days in your new boots we recommend trying them on at home! Go for a walk or find an incline, the more you move in your boot the more comfortable you will feel the day of your big adventure! 

If you're looking for some new hiking kicks, stop into Sommerfeld Outfitters to try out some select styles! We offer top brands like Keen and Danner.
