    Roughly how long does it take to walk from Le Puy to Santiag

    I took 11 weeks I found the Le Puy route tough and the spanish route easy. For boots I wore merrell moabs and I felt the vibram soles were too thin I felt every pebble under my feet. I got no blisters though I used a combo silk sock liner and wool.
