  1. -On the Boots.- been there, done that! Heard about better, went with something untested by these guys, and I cried all the way on my first hike. SPEND THE MONEY!!! It will be worth it, I promise.

  2. “Consider buying your boots a half-size larger to allow for swelling when on your feet for a long time.”

    Possible total noob question: How does one factor in additional friction that could cause blisters, etc?

    Possible answer from “some” experience: I have found that looking for shoes/boots in the afternoon/late afternoon or evening. If any swelling has occurred it gets taken into account here because I’ve been working, walking around all day, etc.

    Input/responses/replies obviously more than welcome.
