Kili Gear: Footwear
These boots are made for trekking! Recommendations and tips for making sure your feet are comfortable and warm on Kilimanjaro.
Darn Tough Light Hiker Micro Crew Socks - Women. These socks are locally sourced and made.
These waterproof women’s boots are lighter weight and fit a narrower foot. (Rachel's recommendation)
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)
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!)
