hello, I am planning to start at Lourdes on or about Oct. 1st 2018 then on to Orloron and StPdP and on into Spain. Is anyone starting about that date at Lourdes? Looking for a small group; women and/or mixed to get acclimated with. Strong, that is I can walk good distances but I walk moderate-comfortable for distance rather than fast. Also, I have purchased a new pair of hiking boots: La Sportiva Ultralite and they are but I'm wondering about the comfort of walking with the height of the ankle support? Seems a bit much. I've been walking in them now to break them in; boot is very light and comfortable but not used to such ankle support.
