How to keep your tootsies warm winter hiking in Arizona

Dust off that Waterproof Footwear for those chilly winter hikes. We may not use waterproof hiking shoes much in Arizona but this time of year is when it works great. That breathable footwear we use the rest of the months here just doesn’t offer the insulation you may want for the cold, wet or snow. Pair it with a good Merino wool sock and you are good to go.

Check out the video and come by the shack if you have questions or want to try on some options.
