I have gone barefoot shoes for the last year bother Merrels and VVFs. I love them and they are great but they are not water proof.
I was doing a hard hike and needed something waterproof on my feet. I figured my old hiking boots would be fine and I wouldn't notice the heal because of the rough terrain and changes in elevation. Boy was I wrong my hip was in extreme pain the next day.
Can anyone recommend a good zero drop hiking boot/shoe that can be waterproofed or is waterproof that I can use?
