Fresh Air Feet

Every traveler knows that shoes can make the all the difference. You need two pair of comfortable walking shoes - that's the basic minimum, along with good socks that will wick moisture. Anything else (dress shoes, flip-flops, etc.) is optional.

I have two pair of comfortable walking shoes and I have switched between them as one is told. I have several pair of thick socks which have kept my feet dry. I have had no blisters, sore toes, or any other type of foot problem. Well, there has been one small problem...

After almost a month of long days in those shoes and socks, my feet are crying out to be bare - not just over night, but for days...a minimum of 48 hours...no, more than that...a week at least!

  1. Oh, Tere, I couldn't stand to wear ANY kind of shoes for that long a period of time. I wear shoes only when absolutely necessary, and I've become real comfortable walking in some good, fairly well-supported sandals. My feet simply need to be out in the air, even in dead winter!
