Essential Hiking Shoes

January 9, 2017

I picked up these trail shoes before we headed out on our trip to Hawaii, and they were honestly the best thing that I brought along with me on the trip! I used them all throughout the trip and they took me to lots of beautiful spots on the island and kept me from falling on my face!

The hiking trails are especially muddy this time of year in Kauai so I needed the extra grip to make it up and down some steep climbs. My shoes are well coated in mud now -- just as they should be! I really liked these shoes in particular because I live in my running shoes, and these were like the fit of a running shoe but with the grips for hiking (or trail running). They do run a bit small, so I went a half size up.
