After hiking 800+ miles, it is time for new hiking boots.
With this week’s resupply, I had an already-broken-in pair of hiking boots sent to me. They look so clean! I’m hoping that this size still fits. Supposedly your feet grow while you are on the trail. Some people need larger sized-boots. If for some reason they don’t fit, I already have a larger backup size waiting for me.
Post script–So I got the broken-in pair and the first day they were fine, but for the last three days my feet have been hurting more, with developing blisters on my heels and toes. So I guess that my feet have grown–wider, not longer.
I’ve got another pair of hiking boots that are size nine, so I’ll try them. I am hoping that they are wide enough but not to long. If they don’t work I’ll have to see if I can get to an outfitter for new boots that are my size but wider. I’ll keep you posted.
