Conditioning your feet to withstand a fifteen mile hike without shoes might take more grit than you can muster, and if the prospect of losing all ten toe nails in the process makes you squeamish, then you might want to consider slipping your tender feet into Garmont's Trail Beast Mid Men's Hiking Boots.
Generously cushioned and made with a suede leather upper that wears well over time, the Trail Beasts will protect your feet from mile after mile of arduous terrain and leave your feet feeling in good enough shape to wake up and do it again the very next day. And since wet weather is always a threat, Garmont put Gore-Tex membranes behind the Trail Beasts' lightweight uppers. Anti-torsional shanks deliver a solid and stable feel on sloping trails and long traverses, and the addition of Vibram soles with MegaGrip offers solid bite and reliable traction on everything from slick mud to packed-out topsoil.
