Why is so really important wearing good Treking shoes for Inca Trail,
Inca trail is one of the famous trek there many stairs up and dow and wearing proper walking shoes is a fundamental element in maintaining the correct walking technique as well as preventing injury. we recomemded wearing two kind of hiking boots.
Hiking shoes ,low-cut models with flexible midsoles are excellent for day hiking.Many ultralight backpackers may even choose trail-running shoes for long-distance journeys.
Hiking boots , these range from mid-or hight cut models intended for day hikes or weekend backpacking trips with light loads they often flex easily and require little break-in time, but they lack the support and durability of stout backpacking boots.
