- Year of past OR future Camino
- Camino France (2015 and 2016)
What is the best regime for looking after boots on the Camino? I always brush the loose mud and dirt off and pick stones etc out of the tread at the end of the day. What about drying wet boots? I have seen manufacturer’s advice to avoid sunlight and artificial heat and not to stuff them with newspaper to absorb moisture. I’ve also seen hikers using hairdryers to speed dry wet boots, but been told that will damage Gore-Tex linings. What have people found works best?
