Anthony Galluscio Hiking Gear Review #3: Hiking Shoes
Anthony Galluscio Hiking Shoes Review
Item: Hiking Shoes
Quantity: 1 pair
Model: Men’s Moab Ventilator Hiking Shoe
Weight: 32.5 oz
Notes: I chose these shoes because they are not too heavy and provide good support. The shoes that I purchased for the Foothills Trail thru-hike represent at least the fifth pair of this exact shoe that I have owned. I find these shoes to be comfortable right out of the box and this is my shoe of choice for casual wear and light day hiking. However, I had never hiked a grueling seventy seven miles through the mountains wearing these shoes until my Foothills Trail thru-hike. The toe box on these shoes is quite wide. While that is great for casual wear, it does provide opportunity for blisters. The pros are that the insole is removable and the shoes dry easily over night. The cons are that the shape of the shoe is conducive to light, rather than strenuous, hiking. In summary, in the future I plan to wear these for casual wear, but not for strenuous hiking.
