1. It's some kind of mistake when people say that "this sole slips, and that don't" but for all that they mean sliding on wet surface. Any sole slips on wet surface.

2. Buy a brand that is well known. Though it's expensive, you can be sure of the quality. Scarpa, Asolo, Raichle, Vasque, La Sportiva and Lowa - have good trekking boots.

3. The common rule for choosing trekking boots: take one extra size or a half-size than your normal size, depending on your socks.
Your feet will swell while walking. Basically, before first trekiing trip the boots are to be worn in, city is possible. One day is enough, but better to do it for several days.

4. You should have extra pair - youll have what to put on during pit stops and lasting halts. Usually its light sandals.

5. All trekking boots (but not mountaineering boots) are NOT inslulated - not for serious winter conditions. Internal temperature ajusted wearing socks or 2 pair of socks.
