March 2008 Boots Review: Start Smart Boot Tips

Readers Rule!
Foot-saving advice from BACKPACKER readers

BAG IT
“Boots wet, socks dry? Put a plastic bag over each sock, then lace up your boots. Dry feet stay warmer!”
Sarah Kirconnell, Bradford Woods, PA

AIR CONDITIONING
“On hot days, fold your socks down over the tops of your boots to create a cooling ‘chimney effect’ that channels air to your feet.”
Lisa Halbower-Fenton, Scituate, MA

D-IY SHOES
For a lightweight pair of camp or river-crossing shoes, carry an extra pair of footbeds and put them inside a pair of extra socks.
Leon Nelson, Redding, CA
