One thing I liked this week #3

My Merrell All Out Peak shoes! These guys made the 100km Dodentocht a lot easier on my feet than my previous 2012 edition with walking boots. The mental challenge is still the same though.

Why are you wearing trail runners for walking?!

In all the documentaries, articles and books I've read about long distance hiking (mostly in America), almost everyone is wearing trail runners instead of walking shoes/boots.

My old walking boots had served me well for more than 1.000 km, so they needed a replacement. Because of my distant dream to walk something like the PCT I thought it would be a good idea to try trail runners.

One visit to Runners' Lab and I was all set. The first 3 walks my feet had to adapt to the shoes, but after that it was all good. I've been walking on these shoes for about a year now and I'm definitely buying new trail runners when these guys need to retire.
