Whether it is a challenging sport, outdoor freedom, exercise, or recreation, there are so many different reasons why people enjoy hiking. Hiking has many benefits and is an enjoyable way of getting closer to nature.
But as with all other forms of recreation and sports, the right equipment is required, particularly for the rough outdoors.
Skechers manufacture some superb boots for casual and even more serious hiking excursions in all weather conditions.
Why Choose Hiking?
There are so many benefit and advantages to Hiking;
- A Challenging Workout – Hiking can be a very challenging and highly effective workout routine that recruits all the muscles in our lower limbs and core. Hiking also improves your balance and stability when walking on uneven terrain much better than a flat treadmill or flat road. When you compare walking and Hiking, Hiking by far burns many more calories and is a much healthier cardiovascular exercise, not to mention so much more enjoyable.
- Improves the Brain Function – Being in nature instantly calms you and improves your mood as well as mental health, reducing stress and anxiety. It was tested and proven that individuals walking in nature compared to urban settings had less activity in the brain region, which is associated with mental illness.
- Prevents Illness – When you are outdoors for a walk or hike, you are not just burning calories and getting good exercise; you also reduce your risk of severe health issues. Exercise lessens your heart disease risk, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and obesity. Hiking in the outdoors also means fresh air, which is good for you and a calming natural setting.
- Potential Disadvantages – Hiking, like any other form of exercise, is quite strenuous and, therefore, should be approached with caution. You will need to stretch and condition your body as well as take it slowly in the beginning, sticking to shorter hikes and safer terrain. Besides this, weather changes from very hot to cold, dangerous terrain, wet and slippery surfaces, and many other elements that can cause injury need to be considered; you will need the proper gear to safeguard yourself against such injuries. An appropriate boot of hiking is the best place to start with your gear preparations.
Do You Really Need a Proper Hiking Shoe
Yes, you most definitely will, depending on eth terrain you will be walking in. In general, I would rather recommend a Hiking BOOT than a shoe, as it provides better ankle protection and stability.
A good Hiking boot offers maximum protection against weather and terrain elements, such as waterproofing, puncture resistance, and slip resistance. Other than that, stability, support and comfort are also required in a good hiking boot or shoe.
