My choice of footwear is typically none—I prefer barefooting for my warm weather adventures. When a shoe is required (over stimulated feet, the terrain gets too rocky) one of my go-to shoes is the Trek Ascent. They simply protect my feet and allow me to carry on.


I own eight pairs of various Vibram shoes. They’re great!
