I hadn't heard of the Timps before today.Widowmaker wrote:I bought the timps and love them. I went to their website and noticed that they make gaitors that are custom made to fit the timps.
I have a pair of Xero Prios. I like the way they feel on my feet, but I quickly found out that they're not good for hiking through thorny terrain. During my first (and only) outing with them, I got a thorn in my foot within the first mile.te_wa wrote:Xero shoes are made for flat, wide feet.
It took me a while to adapt my feet. Even now, after several years of using minimalist shoes, there are times when I think that I bruise some part of my foot from walking over too many rocks. Or, perhaps I do not take sufficient care when walking over the rocks. When that happens, I switch to using shoes with somewhat less flexible soles for a while.azbackpackr wrote:@KBKB
I also have Altra Superiors, an older pair, and have done some hiking and easy backpacking with them, but my particular foot issues are better served with the thicker soles of the Altra Lone Peaks. I do like the superiors, though. Wish I could enjoy feeling the rocks, but it's not in the cards for me.
Yes, for me also. After getting accustomed to Altras, most other shoes feel too confining now. I especially hate squishing my feet into my cycling shoes.azbackpackr wrote:Most shoes are too pointy for me.
