What's the fit like on the petrosolaum shoes?

post #21632 of 22279
Generally TTS, except this model (show stitch) which seems to fit about a size large. If possible, buy from a store (Fascinate?) that can give sizing advice as I'm no confident

This.  For multiday hiking with a decent sized pack, you want something with ankle support.  For day hikes up to about 10m, you don't need or want more than approach shoes.  Actual hiking in unneccessarily heavy boots is brutal.

yup, my family laughs in my face when i pop over to the mainland for day hikes in squamish, etc. - but i find proper hiking boots annoying for such things.

multi-day proper-pack laden mountain treks? [wear your damn hikers boy]

And slip ons (loose fitting) for camp.  Having to put your hikers on after having unpacked, etc... and having been on your feet all day = unpleasant.  A lot of newbies bring sandals, not knowing how cold it can get up in the mountains at night and into the early morning, even in the summer.  I wonder if Guidi slip ons are comfy and lightweight enough.   Also, dry socks.

nothing quite like that weightless feeling once you finally hit camp for the night and get to take your pack off...

The change into dry socks is definitely a miraculous feeling, but

the last time I went backpacking (admittedly only four days/three nights) I wore the same underwear every damn day with no observable problems.

The "unobservable" problem is because other people are too polite to tell you otherwise.
post #21641 of 22279

Not the people I hike with.

Sorta the opposite of having a party in your pants.
