The Best Women’s Outdoors Sandals for Camping Trips
We’ve all heard of hiking boots, which are a staple item when it comes to camping. But while the hiking boot is an essential part of your trip, we’re introducing you to another indispensable item that surpasses the hiking boot in terms of practicality: the hiking sandal. Now is the time to think outside the (shoe) box and try something new. Time and time again, people are switching from hiking boots to sandals as their walking footwear preference. Sandals are easy to slip on and off, easy to clean and give your feet the necessary space to breathe. They're easily paired with socks for nights sitting around the campfire, and provide arch support and substantial traction that bring trekking to an entirely new level.
Spending time outdoors, sleeping in your tent, and cooking dinner over a fire are some of the best parts of camping. There’s nothing like waking up to an expansive view of crystal clear lake water or mountain peaks towering towards the sky. That’s why, during your next jaunt in the great outdoors, you’ll want to pack one of these pairs of women’s adventure sandals. They’re a camping partner that’ll stick around for life. Better yet, while hiking in the wild, rest assured you’re walking with shoes that are good for the environment. The Viakix sandals are committed to using 25% of recycled materials in our footwear. We’ve also reduced our packaging by 30% to help make this world a greener place.
How to Prepare for Camping Trips
Preparation paves the way for a seamless camping trip. You don’t want to encounter any issues while you’re already on your trip, and the only way to prevent that is by preparing. You’ll need to bring the obvious: a tent, yoga mat, and headtorch for those dark evenings under the stars. Pack dry bags and a waterproof tent cover in case it rains, and more than enough food for you and your camping adventure buddies. Also make sure you pack a medical kit, portable charger, and water purification tablets. If you’re car camping, you can easily store food and enough water in your trunk. It’s always better to be overprepared than underprepared, so with a few simple changes and a checklist, you’re well on your way to a great adventure.
One of the best ways to prepare for a camping trip is to bring hiking sandals that are durable, waterproof, and supportive. That’s where our Viakix sandals come in. These sandals are made of long-lasting material that will protect your feet.
