Tips for Wearing Hiking Boots in Steamboat Springs

Hiking provides people with the chance to explore certain areas of the country that they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Colorado has some of the country’s best hiking, as the Rocky Mountains are full of excellent trails. Before you head out, you’ll want to invest in a good pair of boots. After you buy hiking boots in Steamboat Springs, it’s a good idea to learn as much as possible about maintaining and wearing them.


Break Them In

Never wear hiking boots unless you have broken them in first. Failure to do so could lead to serious injuries or pain in your feet and joints. The best way to break your boots in is to do it gradually. This means wearing your hiking boots in Steamboat Springs and waiting until you have loosened them up before taking them on the trails. Even just wearing them around the house helps and will minimize the chances of them causing you harm.


Prevent Blisters

Once your boots have been broken in, there are a few more things that you can do to ensure that you get the most out of them. Start by putting a topical antiperspirant on your feet. This prevents your feet from sweating and, therefore, rubbing on the inside of the boot. You can might consider wearing polypropylene socks, as this is another way to keep your feet dry. If you notice the boot rubbing somewhere on your feet, apply Vaseline to the area before wearing the boots again.


Buying Tips

Of course, you’ll want to find a boot that offers you the perfect fit, so it is important that you try a number of different brands. Steamboat Shoe Market carries over 50 different brands of shoes and boots, making it likely that you will find the perfect pair. Give them a call at 970-871-8566 to go over their current availability.
