Hubby and I will be walking the CF in Sept/Oct this year (first timers). On our holidays and hikes, I have always worn trail shoes or runners of different sorts but never even thought to get boots. I am very happy with my Hoka Waterproof trail shoes at the moment but, for some reason, thought I'd try the equivalent in a mid-boot for the CF - maybe thinking of extra support and more waterproof being a boot. I'm currently wearing them around the house and can still return them - it's difficult because I can't try them outside. I'm finding the extra support around the ankle plus the extra amount of wool touching my skin a bit too much - a bit restrictive or "less free" I guess. I've read so many helpful comments on this forum but wonder if anyone has advice about this transitioning from shoe to boot experience?
