I am desparate to get some advice!!!
I'm booked to do the Inca trail (4 days) in early July.
Although this will be my first hike, I'm an active 30 year old female (who still plans to get even fitter for the hike).
My question is...Do I NEED to get hiking boots? I doubt that I will take up hiking as a hobby and so my "investing" in a pair of hiking boots could be a waste of money as I may never use them again after I return.
I currently have these trail runners and wonder if they will suffice - zappos.com/n/…mr
Granted, the trail runners are not great on wet slippery surfaces but I won't be hiking during the rainy season so I should be ok.
