Conquer the mountain with the shoes 'tank trail'

NOT long ago a friend complained about his travels while climbing the mountain. He complained that his feet had blisters because of the climb. Indeed, the only time the two friends are doing the climb so things to consider when going up the mountain is still ill-prepared.

He told me that his feet had scuffed pretty badly because it does not prepare seriously used shoes for climbing. In fact, shoes are an important factor in the climb. Here are some things you can consider to choosing shoes for mountain climbing.

First, choose a shoe size bigger than the shoes we wear everyday. This is to provide more space for our feet. For example, if usually worn size 39, choose size 40-41 in choosing mountaineering boots. This is done because when the climb we will wear layers of socks to ease cold mountains, which can often be extreme cold. In addition, while descending the mountain, we will pass a variety of conditions that are often full derivative rocks so durability is expected to be more powerful legs. If you wear the right size foot, with our feet had blisters easily. Choose shoes that pass too high ankle sprain that is not.

Second, choose a shoe mount with shapes and patterns in accordance with our feet. Sol is padded comfort is key. Usually the climbers will choose mountaineering boots with vibram soles. Tread design on the sole is shaped tank trail aims to provide traction on wide range of surfaces and has high abrasion resistance.

The third point to be complete selection of mountain boots have a waterproof material. The most climbers choose mountaineering boots are made of durable synthetic material of high water, which Polytetrafluoroetylene (PTFE). With this material, we do not need to be too concerned when the rain came down and pass through a small stream or pool of water on the mountain.

Price range offered for mountain boots varies, beginning from US$ 35 to most expensive range of US $ 100. You simply select the appropriate comfort and funds.
