Top 5 Best Trekking Shoes in India 2019 - Buying Guide

Beas Kund, Manali Trek


How to choose the right trekking shoes?


There are 4 things you have to keep in mind before buying a trekking shoe:


1. Good grip:

Make sure your shoe has a good grip. Now you can take a look at the following shoe for example:- there are deep grooves in the sole that shows the shoe will probably save you from slipping in mountain trail or big boulders.

2. Softness and Flexibility:

You need a certain softness in your sole because you will be walking on different kinds of terrain and your shoe need to adapt to the terrain, so you need softness and flexibility in the sole. Now how do you check for that? Take something such as a key or you just need a hard metal and just tap on the sole and listen to the noise, now the sound that it makes should be dull so that it gives you an idea how soft it is if its too hard your shoes are not going to work.

3. Ankle Support:


Probably the most important thing is ankle support, now a lot of running shoes and sports shoes come with good grip and flexibility but what they lack is ankle support now in Himalayas you will be walking on rough terrain, climbing up and down where your ankle is prone to twisting in unusual angles an that's when your trek would end really so you don't want that to happen and you want good ankle support, so make sure you get good trekking shoes.


4. Water Resistant:


Make sure your shoe is water resistant an added layer of either leather or rexine will help because if you step into a puddle for 3 or 4 seconds then your shoe should not get wet as it won't let water seep through, so water resistance is important Also make sure its not waterproof, then your feet won't be able to breathe and it will get really sweaty and stinky and your trek mates will not let you inside your tent.
