Health Tip: Take a Hike -- In the Right Shoes

And make sure they have sufficient traction

(HealthDay News) -- Choosing the proper shoes for a hike can protect your feet and help ward off injury.

The American Council on Exercise offers this advice:

  • Choose a shoe with good traction, particularly if your hike will cover hilly terrain.
  • Consider a pair of shoes specifically made for hiking. Or you can wear a quality pair of walking or running shoes.
  • Choose lightweight shoes that keep your feet dry if you encounter a stream or puddle.
  • Whatever type of shoes you wear, make sure they fit well to prevent blisters and discomfort.
