Just got back today from a spur of the moment overnighter up at Table Rock State Park, SC and then some of the Foothills Trail. Great weekend but as I was hiking I noticed my shoes just weren't right. My feet were sliding and the bottom of my feet were burning. I ended up hurting my left knee from all the sliding around.
We long story short, I learned something. It doesn't matter how nice your boots are . . they will all suck if you forget you insoles. YIKES!!
To large areas of skin right off and I didn't even realize the reason until I was unpacking at home and came upon my insoles on the shelf DOH!
