I have been hiking for quite some time now, mostly in Germany where I used to live. My old sneakers and nordic walking poles did me just fine there since there were tons of well carved out, maintained trails.
Now that I am in Hawaii where there are drastic differences in climate and trail conditions on one island, my tennies are not doing so well. One hike I went on was a virtual rainforest with lots of mud that almost caused me to slip and kill myself. I hiked Koko Crater yesterday that was so incredibly dry and dusty, that loose dirt also almost caused me to slip and kill myself.
Any suggestions for hiking boots/shoes??? I am clueless about them!
Thanks in advance!
