You can explore all the fancy stuff that you would want for your hike or trek but that should be as long as you are smart enough to choose them wisely.
You’ll find a long list of “Must Haves” for your trekking or hiking adventure which you might or might not actually need.
Best Hiking Boots for Women
Personally, I cannot imagine any of my adventure trips without a comfortable pair of shoes. In fact, nobody can. If you are more of a flip-flop person, you should carry them, just in case you get itchy at times and just want to take the shoes off. Besides, for a successful, fun and adventure vacation you should rather invest some of your time and money in your footwear.
Please go through some of my goldmine collection. Of course, I bought just one pair 🙂

True value for money, these shoes are great for a beginner hiker/trekker who is looking to do it more frequently, which means the more you use the better and comfortable it gets with time.
If you are going for a hike or a trek for the first time, this one gotta be your first purchase.
