Enjoy hiking? Tips for your feet.

Filed under:

Love hiking? I do, especially in fall, when the days are cooler and the yellows, reds and oranges are so vivid and gorgeous. Hiking can be hard on the feet though. If you're considering a hike in the near future, consider these tips from Fitsugar:
  • Wear hiking boots that cover the ankles. They will help stabilize your ankles in case you roll them.
  • Clip your toenails before you go. This will help protect your feet from injury within the boot.
  • Wear wicking socks -- they will help prevent blisters
  • But in case blisters do pop up, bring some mole skin or band-aids.
  • Rest your feet by taking off your boots every now and then.
How do you keep your feet pain-free on a hike?
