After I finished writing my blog yesterday, I spent about an hour trimming the Orange Superfeet insoles. The arch seemed to be in the wrong place. I decided to go to a local shoe store that sells this product. I should have done that in the first place.
Before I started training, I wore a 9.5 shoe. Three years later and over a thousand trail miles, I now wear a 10.5. That I knew. What I didn’t know is that I am also a wide. Switching to a Green Superfeet wide resolved the problem. With that, the only lagging equipment issue is resolved.
The success of this massive hike is completely dependent upon the health of my feet. Until I started training, I never had problems with my feet. They were mostly ignored. They are now equal to my eyes, heart, lungs and brain.
