These days, footwear options for long-distance hikers abound. Denise Friend, a footwear expert and merchandising manager for the outdoor retail supplier REI, said a common mistake among newbies is not choosing the right footwear for the right activity: short hike vs. backpacking trip, for instance, along with incline, season and terrain.
