I have been doing some shoe shopping lately around my local hi-tech shoe store and i am not sure what i should go with. I know not every one prefers hi-tech but its local and the only shoe store where i live at, so i would like to be able to try shoes on first. A couple of questions i have are needed from some people with experiences with them.
1. Is getting a mid-high sole really needed? is it worth helping prevent possible ankle rolling for the weight?
2. Should i get water proof shoes or not? is breath ability really important, or it just means your feet are going to be wet that night until u change socks.
3. Also it getting water proof shoes worth it in case u fall in the creek while crossing rocks etc etc.
Also if any of you have some shoes from hi-tech u have really enjoyed would you mind posting the name of them. These shoes are going to be my spring,summer,fall shoes, so i will buy a separate pair for winter. Thanks for you guys/gals advice.
