Well I finally pay to learn my lesson that it doesn’t work that way for my hiking boots. I bought a pair of timberland hiking shoes 2 months ago after my mulu trip. It was US 6.5, that’s my size as usual. I was eager to break in my hiking shoes and I went to Gunung Dato to try it out. It was quite comfortable at the beginning even though I felt my right foot feels a bit tight. I told myself it’s a new shoe, it’s suppose to feel that way because I haven’t break in yet.
The second time I used my hiking shoes was my trip to
, Mt Mahameru aka Mt Semeru. Walking around with it feels okay although I’m dying to take it out at the end of the day. I’m still at a denial stage that the shoe is not right for me. Surabaya
The horrible part came true when I was descending Mt Mahameru. The ball of my feet is painful and the skin at the back of my right foot starts to peel. I change to my usual hiking shoes, the Kg Adidas hiking shoes. It helps but it’s a bit too late to do so. I have a plaster behind my right foot to ease the pain. The ball of my feet still painful, I can’t do anything else but to continue the journey.
The last time I wore was a shopping trip. As I was walking I finally realize what went wrong.
1) I didn’t take care of the width of my foot when buying shoes. Since I was a baby my relative always being label as a baby gal that have a big foot. It’s no wonder I start walking when I was barely 9 months. Anyway I don’t like the feeling of being label with big foot thingy. It’s not feminine at all. It makes me look rough physically. Sounds like CINDERELLA UGLY STEP SISTERS.
2) I didn’t’ re-measure my foot which I should have done when buying this shoes as my foot might grow bigger from the last time I bought my shoe.
3) I neglected my right foot which is bigger than my left foot.
I guess I should try guy’s shoes too. Who knows that the smaller size of guys shoe might fit my feet. :)
My current shoes are up for sale as second hand thingy as I already bought a pair of hiking shoes again.
