Still on the lookout for the perfect pair of hiking boots, yesterday I set out to find them, the boots with the widest toe box. I was on a mission. I googled, searched, read, compared and when I had zeroed in I went to REI.
Decided on the Keen Targhee II Mid.
I am so excited, can't wait to hike them on Saturday! It will be a smaller, 9-mile hike, which will be the perfect distance to try them out.
And while at REI I learned that it actually matters how you lace your shoes. They showed me a technique I can use to lock my heel in place more securely. Now, I'm not sure, I might be the only one out there who did not know this and you're all thinking "duh", but hey, better late than never.
Did some more internet research about that, too, and found this nifty little video.
