here's a tip, or rather a story with a moral:once i bought some brand new moderatley priced hiking boots.. I tried them on in the store....seemed good. put them back in the box. good price. bought 'em. the next week i was in the upper chisos hiking up emory peak. we got to the top and i was in severe pain! i literally threw my boots off in extreme anger! rubbed my feet. my hikin partner picked the boot i threw up and handed it back to me...i was nearly, well, i WAS crying like a baby! it hurt so bad! as i unlaced my boots i looked inside them.(this is where it gets good)inside at the toes was the white tissue paper waded up at the end. oops. i took the tissue out and suddenly the boots were very comfortable....go figure. :oops:
Anytime you buy anything new that you need to be comfortable in, buy them enough in advance so that you can wear them and break them in!
