Safari Tips: The shoe edition
Right, let’s talk shoes! As a woman, you can never have too many shoes. Yes, we know can’t wear them all but who cares they are nice to look at. Like Marilyn Monroe said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Also, let’s not forget men, as we know they love to invest in that perfect pair although they do not like to say this aloud.
As you know, the South Luangwa is renowned for walking safari’s, and we recommend that you give it a good think as to what style of shoe will complete your ultimate safaris look. Let’s not forget the most important factor, comfort and stability. Do bear in mind that some shoes can be on the heavy side and might not always be practical.
First of all, let’s start with support, if you do have weak ankles we recommend taking a look at a shoe with good ankle support and which laces all the way up. Merrel has got a good range which offers ankle support, but we do find that although good quality, some of their shoes are more on the heavy side.
If you are looking for the ultimate investment in shoes, you can’t go wrong with a pair Russell Moccasin Co. They are made to the shape of your feet as well as in different styles and is the perfect combination of canvas and leather to last you a lifetime of Safaris.
