    Foot Care

    I’ve just completed the Camino Frances. SJPP to Santiago. I did not get one blister, not one! I did however take care of my feet. Trail runners: Altra Lone Peak 6. Wide toe box which meant my toes were not squashed. They are not waterproof but this did mean they dried out quickly and I never...

    Numbers of pilgrims starting at SJPP

    Thanks Susan, I have now pre booked right up to Puente la Reina which is 6 nights. You are right, Zubiri was already really busy. Really hoping it thins out as stupidly I thought the time I selected was going to be quieter. I don't think I can handle having to dash around at the end of a walk...

    Just checked mine, I wear a UK 11 and these are a UK and fit like a glove. Like someone else mentioned, these are zero drop but I have found no problems adjusting.

    Trail Runner Brands That Work for wide feet

    I actually can't remember what size I bought, I'm out right now but will look when I get home. I really don't think I've ever worn anything so instantly comfortable. Re the Northface, they were fine for a while but when I ramped up the training they failed me

    Trail Runner Brands That Work for wide feet

    I've just bought the Altra Lone Peak 6 and as mentioned above they have a really wide toe box which I need, they are super light and probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I did 20K's this morning, 15k's yesterday and they felt like slippers. I originally bought a pair of North Face...
