Your feet on the road

Basic foot care

On the most demanding routes any gait abnormality can cause significant injury. It is therefore advisable for a podiatrist to carry out, in advance, a biomechanical study to see if your gait is normal or if it presents any abnormalities.

FOOTWEAR

FOOTWEAR

We recommend worn in trekking shoes with buffer soles that are taller in the heel than in the forefoot in order to avoid overloading the muscles at the back of the leg.

BREAKS

BREAKS

Use slides with a fastening to let your feet rest and perspire on the stops you make after walking all day.

 

NOTICE

DO NOT USE BROKEN OR VERY WORN FOOTWEAR

The footwear must maintain the stability of your feet, providing restraint and thus avoiding the risk of injury.

SOCKS

SOCKS

Don't forget to have more than one pair of socks to hand. If your feet sweat a lot or overheat with high temperatures, do not hesitate to change your socks in the middle of the walk. The socks should be made of cotton and seamless, which adapt to the foot without forming wrinkles or folds.

 

NOTICE

Keep your socks dry and you will avoid fungus and blisters!

FIRST-AID KIT

It is vital to carry one in case of possible injuries or wounds. Should include:

  • Moisturising cream
  • Pure petroleum jelly or lubricant
  • Antiseptic wash to prevent infections in wounds or blisters.
  • Dressings for covering wounds or blisters. (Gauze and tape)
  • Styptic powder to control sweating

If faced with any serious foot or ankle problem, the best thing to do is to go to a podiatrist.
