Various types of footwear you may need to consider:
Closed toe sandals are best – waterproof uppers provide good coverage, cap toe keeps toes protected, rubber outer-sole supplies traction.
Trail running is the most versatile option, make sure shoes are broken in beforehand; all types are made from leather and provide a high degree of ankle and foot protection – designed specifically for rough terrain with stiff and supportive mid-soles. Protects feet from rough terrain and outside elements.
Best if built with heel contoured for stability, arch supports or anatomically contoured footbeds and padded collars. Keeps foot supported, provides smooth walking and ease on the joints.
