These are my trekking boots. They were very sturdy, but also very comfortable and kept my feet warm and dry the whole time on Kili. I still have them and use them all the time. Even today since it’s raining! (Michael's recommendation)

Power Matic 200 GV

I absolutely love these Smartwool Trekking Heavy Crew Socks for hiking! They have just enough cushion to be comfortable but don’t take up too much room in my boots. Even after wearing them on two Kilimanjaro treks and throughout four New England winters, they are still in great shape and have a few more years in them! Absolutely worth the investment. (Katie's recommendation but everyone in our office loves these too!)

Gaitors keep mud and dirt from getting into your boots. You wouldn’t think these would be necessary, but they are critical to your summit success especially since the mountain can be very muddy at lower elevations! They are very durable and I still use the same pair during New England winters. (Michael's recommendation)
