Once, my job entailed inspection of water sources in rural areas. I had to trek difficult terrains to reach the sources of potable waters like spring water. At the end of the day, I suffered painful blisters, pinched toes and other foot injuries caused by inappropriate hiking shoes. It took me a few weeks to recover from my pains and discomforts.
Lately, I became an expert in shopping for high-quality footwear designed to provide comfort, support and protection I need especially in rigorous and wet areas.
It is very essential to use appropriate footwear because it can add to our margin of safety in rugged terrains and there is great benefit from a perfect precision – fitting shoes. Really, shoes matter!
