Hey

I am looking for rubber shoes, airy sandals that can serve me during the rest or leisure sometimes has slammed.

Right now I use Crocs (not particularly convenient, cross rivers, caught in strong currents) or root (670g).

I'm looking for something Ultra Pure Vivobarefoot but open to suggestions if there is something more interesting.

Thank you

I don't take another couple of hours stoppage or things like that because I didn't find it necessary. Eventually it comes at night every day so you can be the shoes without socks and not subject. But the trick I used was too much to get the soles of my shoes and tie them to their feet with rubber bands or strong spare laces. Thus you have camp shoes as it is often called.

Here are some more suggestions:

The deer days you wear your walking shoes?
I find it rather uncomfortable-don't always finish the walk an hour before sleep, really helps to cross rivers or just a relaxing day scenery (around the towns, for example.)

Thanks for the recommendations.

[Quote = shaharellert; 579277] Eyal as days walking shoes you wear? I find it rather uncomfortable-don't always finish the walk an hour before sleep, really helps to cross rivers or just a relaxing day scenery (around the towns for example) thanks for the recommendations.

I have to say that unless there is usually some logistical purposes so I don't really do rest days.

That is also when I go into town to stock up so I go half day and deal with the arrangements and rest. But that's my style.

I prefer the walk sequence even if it is only a few miles a day.

And Yes, I hang out with shoes. Sometimes I just get the Orthotics (Insoles) and going with the laces open

Some already have to hang out in town too. The goal is to rest?

I disagree with the approach of crossing rivers with Crocs. Serious rivers require normal shoes. And I'm not even in a pair of shoes.

When crossing rivers. The long walk contains within it all. It also has to be wet if necessary. So for this you may want to go with trail and mountain shoes raners

Tall and heavy and clunky. Traill raners dry very quickly and the Gore-Tex shoes take days to dry.

At the end of the day it's all about style. Every one of the things that fit him.

The link I gave you can give you interesting ideas.

I take with me running shoes light (NF) when crossing rivers and use them also as "Sandals". These shoes give reasonable protection to the feet in trees or stones sectors.

The goal is to get comfortable walking in the mountains with a backpack and shoes. It's fun to wander around town:)
About crossing wet rivers-a few hours = blisters (for me at least) and so I try to avoid as much as possible. Crocs do not fit for the job so I am looking for a replacement.
But I understand the purpose, each and every style.

Thanks again for the tips!

Does anyone remember that time was ה"נחות product" named "flip-flops.". Rose, like 10th.
BTW, for some time I look at the catalogs of Crocs. How come every hundred models (some completely unfounded), no sandals?! Like the root as the root called miscolt sole.
Dawn! You for the VIVO, I'm hanging with them for a few days, a real pleasure. Some people even claim they are beautiful (well, I don't know about that).

About blisters after several hours of wetness. Do you usually go with high mountain insulated shoes? Because if they get soggy after a few hours and have

You blisters so I'm not surprised. Try to go to trail raners. Also it's light on your feet and get tired less.

I'm used to the shoes. I have no problem with long walks with socks. When business gets damp and wet start.

Do you have any recommendation to trail runners who can test?

In recent years went with several models of SAUCONY company but I don't recall those already.

In Patagonia and now connected to ALDERMAN SALOMON's shoe very fit. Here's a link to shoe:

Http://www.salomon.com/uk/product/xa-pro-3d-ultra-2.html

Compare trail high mountain shoes raners:

Benefits of trail raners:

Easy = less effort, less foot fatigue to the muscles.

Flexibility = no need for adjustment period of the foot

Dry quickly.

Airy = less problems of blisters and bad breath

Usually cheaper, usually

Disadvantages of Traill raners:

Faster abrasion, i.e. considering the area. Last less time.

Require stronger ankles that have slightly less protection for the foot.

There are also shoes that try to combine high mountain insulated shoes to raners trail. I couldn't find them for nothing.

Eyal,

Maybe my memory serves, but I think I've been a fan of shoes?

It was a long, long time. Things have changed. In General, I try not to be a fan of anything. I try to be constantly dynamic.

Also, isn't ruled high-tops. Just introduced another option. Also wrote that always depending on the area.

Not entirely related to the original discussion, but now that you mention.
But I turned around last year in "Midway" (higher factor-moab and Gore-Tex, but weighing the same as my running shoes).
They were soft and I was very satisfied them, including non-trekking with plenty of food and warm clothes.
But when carrying a weight above the sole crash (I guess that in running shoes and trail runners)
So who goes on this shoe (or relief) should take this into account.
And basically similar models are also increasingly less fans and no disease.

However as I don't wear sandals, and uses similar tricks to what was posted here.

I went with the MOAB half aPCT. I must say that I really don't get is this shoe. And Yes, you're absolutely right about weights.

If carrying heavy gear so we shouldn't switch to running shoes and trail.

Hello!

I was not on the Forum.

After 6 months of using ULTRA PURE VIVOBAREFOOT I do recommend them as shoes for crossing streams (carefully not to slip on the rocks). I do not recommend them as principal sneaker for a walk (I'm serious). To answer your question, I would go for comfortable space to match Sprint shoes also for relaxation and sightseeing. No match Sprint shoes to alpine hike in the snow/ice but the rest are fine.

On Sunday I returned from Germany. I traveled a lot on Schwarzwald (2 weeks) in my running shoes: Inov-8 235 Trailroc they totally minimalistic shoes. I'm a little crazy. Most of the leaders made a low running socks Nike DriFit and how thick of Thorlo socks done because it was cold. Temperatures ranging from 2 degrees with light snow up to 12 degrees. Minimalistic shoes from tibshot very fast with nertavot. Case of pounds (the weight I can expect to get Switzerland to WHR)

However in construction cases were missing me GoreTex socks especially during snow melt.

Gregg.

You can go with trail snow also raners As soon as he okrach so it is advisable to use micro spikes or crampons.

Wasn't a GRIP (because there was no ice at all) in the cold water infiltration problem into the shoes. Post pictures soon.

Clumsy me. You talk about a trip. Nice. I think it's worth checking out. However, my shoes are so minimalistic that there is no rigid material up only. I wonder if that would work.
