Do your feet a favour and make sure you have a well-fitting cushioned pair of boots when you hit the Oxfam trail. Hiking for long distances means that any small irritation transforms into a mighty blister as the kilometers go by. A heavy boot with poor ventilation will likely produce a sweaty foot that is again prone to blistering. A lightweight, breathable and well-fitting boot is the only one you should be bringing to the start line on the day of your Oxfam adventure.
Of course, these perfect boots should be coupled with a perfect sock! Again, lightweight, moisture-wicking and breathable are the key properties to look out for in a successful pair of hiking socks.
