I agree with Te-wa on the ankle support. I have a pair of Treks and a pair of Sprints. I tend to workout and wear the sprints (got cool tan lines to prove it ) in town like on Camelback and Papago and wear the Treks on longer hikes. Although I have hiked 7+ miles at a time in the sprints.te-wa wrote:Joe, you may find the vibrams a very great choice in your collection. i love mine, but cannot hike in places like the Supes for more than a few miles, still need to toughen up my girlie feet. find them on sale like i did for $50 and youll wear them every chance you get. (i have the "sprint" model)
What he said. Trail running shoes with upgraded insoles & synthetic socks.nonot wrote:Trailrunners or tennis shoes. Consider adding to them a sturdy insole. The key is to let your feet breathe and not have them slide around in your shoes. Most advice stresses huge thick socks and an underlayer sock, which doesn't work in the desert. I'd recommend for the desert you go with a thin synthetic sock and shoes with light/mesh uppers.
