Unfortunately before we go (it’s a 3 or 4 mile hike!) I will need some hiking footwear. I’ve worn out my pull on shoes, accelerated by recent hiking among the redwoods, so I need two pairs of shoes actually, but hiking shoes are the harder to figure out, so that is the topic: where do I get hiking shoes from?
I’m size 13, to complicate matters. Also, for most of my life I’ve avoided hiking boots because as a kid all I had to wear was hiking boots; I wore them to school and kids tried to make fun of me but I didn’t mind at all (people making fun of me is kinda hilarious!), but they were awfully uncomfortable. Ugh.
So looking for recommendations for:
- comfort level
- sizing availability
- shopping methods (I want to try them on before buying, ne?)
