I went back to REI today to take another look at shoes, since my left little toe kept banging into the inside of my shoe during Saturday’s hike. After trying on (literally) a dozen pairs of shoes, I wound up getting a wider size of the shoe I already had, the Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Hiking Boot. I also picked up a pair of wool socks and sock liners, so hopefully the next test hike will be kinder on my feet. The weather forecast for the next week doesn't look as good as Saturday was, but it looks like this Thursday's going to be the next day out, or maybe Wednesday if this chance of lightning goes away.
