Thinking of signing up for this walk in May. There seem to be different opinions on suitable footwear. More the one person (including some who have done it) say that your comfiest training shoes are best. But, it is 40 miles!!! I can't get my head round that, training shoes?
So, walking boots? Approach shoes? It is on mostly roads and hard tracks.
I have thought that if shoes are comfy for training they are comfy for the event. So comfy trainign shoes seem to make sense for me, does that help you get your head around it? I can't see the problem.
I ran 65 miles of the Bob Graham in fell shoes, which are just trainers with studs, do you think they will fall apart?
