Footwear for Nakasendo trail

Postby Cunninghamii » Fri 18 May, 2018 12:07 pm

We are planning to do a ten walk from Kyoto to Tokyo in late September/early October as was looking for advice on suitable footwear. Some of the articles I have read suggest you need proper trekking boots and other seem to advocate something lighter. My regular boots are Zamberlan Tofanes which may be overkill and a pain to take on and off as per Japanese custom but are great if you need “proper” boots. Wondering if anybody has been over the trail and what would you suggest.
