Boots or Trail Runners?

It’s essential to choose footwear that you feel comfortable walking in for extended periods. Some pilgrims prefer the support and protection of boots, while others opt for the lightweight comfort of trail runners. But always consider factors like the weather forecast, terrain conditions the time of year you’re walking, and the specific route you’re taking when making your decision. In the winter and rainy seasons, and the Camino Primitivo, boots are probably a better choice.
Make sure there’s enough space as your feet may swell during long days of walking. A good idea is to upsize a bit. Depending on your foot shape and arch support needs, you might benefit from using aftermarket insoles as they usually provide extra support and comfort.
