This might seem ridiculous to some but this is by far the best tip I can give you. Imagine having long toenails rubbing against your hiking boots for hours, ouch! This can lead to severe discomfort, abrasion on your toes, and your nails cutting through your socks. In more serious cases, your toenail can drop off as a result of bruising and damage to the nail bed.
Your feet are going to be carrying you throughout the entire hike/trek, it is really important to you take extra special care of them. I’m not suggesting a pedicure (though that will be really good as well...) but ensuring your toenails are cut is a good beginning! You can check out our blister prevention plasters that can be placed at your last toe or back the back of your heel, it’s my favourite item to bring along for long trips.
Also invest in high quality socks and hiking shoes that will ensure comfort and safety for your feet. Shop our hiking footwear range below! :)
