So what about shoes? And socks? What combination is the best for long walks?

I’ve been wearing North Face Hedgehogs since I started training for my Camino in 2019. I continue to go back to them and my last pair logged nearly 3,000 km! I advise you to buy one size up to allow for the inevitable swelling that happens. These shoes have seen all kinds of terrain – from pavement to fields to gravel to an old Roman Road. They’re a mixture of waterproof/breathable and I swear by them. I also have never suffered from blisters. The key to this is finding the right combination of socks and shoes for your feet. I’m a huge fan of the double-lined Wright socks and Ininji Toe socks.
