Hey guys so i have been stalking the forums, and haven't seen any recent boot/ footwear conversations, so I would like to start one.
I am going to Philmont New Mexico this summer and will be doing moderate miles with a mid weight pack (less than 35 hopefully, but possibly up to 40). I think that I would like to bring a pair of trail runners intead of big heavy unbreathable hiking boots. And have any of you guys thought of a lightweight high boot for hiking like the Nike SFB? I have a pair, and just want to see if any of you guys have used them. (here is the link http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?l=shop,pwp,c-1+100701/hf-4294917252+50142 )
What are your oppinions, and what boots/shoes/footwear do you guys like.
(ps. if any of you guys have done long miles, or thru hikes please tell me waht you wore, thanks!!!!)
