Hiking in Running Shoes

So, Straight Leg and I have been hiking in running shoes instead of boots and I have to tell you it has been a terrific experiment. Absolutely the only issue I have run into is wet grass, because they are simply running shoes they do not keep water out.

We used to hike in boots and there is much to be said for the ankle support and the sole protection of the boot. However, with the lightness of the running shoes and the overall comfort, our feet feel so much better upon arriving at camp.

My plan is to transition to a water-resistant or water-proof trail runner or low top hiker very soon. Probably after the winter season.
