- Camino(s) past & future
- CF (2014, 2015, 2018); Kumano Kodo (2019); Portugués (2020)
I wore my old reliable Keen hiking shoes three times on the CF and lighter weight Salomon hiking shoes this past year on the Kumano Kodo, not wanting to shlep heavy boots on a month-long trip through Japan. I'm planning to walk the Portuguese this spring and have been considering investing in trail runners, for extra cushioning on the tiled roads and sidewalks. My concern is -- how stable are they in the rain? I love my Sketchers, but here on the sidewalks of New York, I find that when they get soaked my feet slide and squish around inside them and cause me to lose my balance. So -- two questions here. How is the traction of Hokas etc in rain, and if the traction is "too" good, does anyone experience the interior slip-and-slide problem? Thanks.
