Foot-saving advice from BACKPACKER readers
"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
"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
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
