Choosing The Best Hiking Boots

When it comes to hiking, some pros will tell you that it can be pretty hard to choose the best equipment; not having the perfect hiking boots for your body and shape can cause a lot of pain and some permanent damage on long term so it’s really important to know what you can wear.

Hiking boots are not just about hiking; you can also wear them during the fall or winter with your more casual apparel. You can also choose lighter fabric hiking boots that are perfect for warmer seasons whenever you wish to spend your time walking more than the average person. They are comfortable and very durable so it seems that they are great fashion accessories.

Fitting boots – whatever type of boots you end up choosing, you have to make sure that they fit; this is very important since you definitely need them to support your boots, no matter what type of activity you are doing.

Walk with them on – whenever you try on a pair of shoes or boots, the most important thing is to make a few steps wearing them to see how they might bother your feet in the long run; this is definitely a must for boots, where you need to be absolutely sure that you are buying something comfortable.

Low cut or high cut – so you decided to buy boots but you don’t have any idea what type you should get. Low cut boots are perfect for light walking and good during the summer but they don’t do much to protect your feet or your ankles. On the other hand, high cut boots are great for protecting those but can be a little too much for somebody who is not into hardcore hiking. If you can, try to buy something mid cut or decide what type of activity you are planning to do with your boots on and go from there.

Make sure that you choose your hiking boots according to the season also, this is really important because you definitely don’t want to wear winter hiking boots during the summer and vice-versa. It can really damage your feet to the point where you cannot walk.

This Summer’s Shoes Trends

Shoes respect the general trends set for this summer: pastel color, mutant high soles and retro spirit, proving once again the fashion designers’ inventiveness and their ability to provide all the fashionistas with the type of sandals and slippers which is the most appropriate for their lifestyle.

Mule slippers


Being accused of a severe lack of pragmatism, the mule slippers have been for a long time out of the the catwalks. However, it seems that 2012 could mean their comeback if we take into consideration the famous creations Prada (whose flaming leather tailing embedded on the heels made such a thrill), the two-tone Miu Miu mule slippers or the sporty models of Rag & Bone.

Walking flat sandals


Monochrome at Alexander Wang, ethno – casual under the hands of the Danish Camilla Skovgaard or declined in turquoise python and flanges with Stella McCartney, sandals are attempting to appropriate the current trends and to convince perched high heels fans to succumb to their irresistible comfort.

Pastel shades


Supported by fashion designers like Marc Jacobs, pastel shades cover this season shoes, ballet flats and ankle boots, appropriating a variety of colors ranging from orange sorbet to green water, going through pale yellow. Sometimes wisely monochrome (with Jil Sander), sometimes bolstered by the addition of a metallic detail (with Yves Saint Laurent), they are one of the hottest trends. It is, indeed, difficult to consider the spring of 2012 without a pair of pastel shoes likely to bring to your denims a necessary touch of trendy sweetness.

African influences


Patterns borrowed from the African crafts abound this season. Between braided leather showing some tribal graphics, rows of colorful wooden beads and soles covered with wax, this summer’s sandals provide a safari chic look, as the Africa Dream boots by Christopher Bailey already proved it.
