[pct-l] Swollen Feet

If you do not want to worry too much about blisters and swollen feet, then wear hiking sandals.  I currently use Bite hiking sandals.  I sugguest you wear medium weight hiking socks, so your feet do not dry out too much on very long hikes.  You could develop a callus or cracked foot skin if you do not protect your feet with socks and skin cream.  Also, the socks protect your feet a little more against rocks and sticks.  Though this is not a big problem if you are careful.  Also, you need to train in sandals to strenghen your ankles.  Sandals are great!  Happy trails, Switchback
