Discovering Nature Just the Way it Should be - WILD!

Picture this. Clear blue skies, a dizzying valley view and your only company is the lone bird circling in the sky! With the New Year barely a week away and the holiday week having just kick-started, you surely must have already conjured countless such images. If you're heading to sub zero destinations, then you'd surely get your fair share of adventure. The snow is perfect to try out a whole load of winter sports. And if you're looking to escape the biting cold and enjoy a warm outdoor adventure, then the tropical forests of East Asia would be a backpacker's dream come true. And to help you explore your dream destination, here's our version of the hitchhiker's guide to our planet!

Before you start packing your backpack, it's best to make a checklist of what needs to get in there. Let's start with probably the most important item on your list, a rugged pair of shoes. Your shoes will come handy not only for those long walks in secluded spots with not a single person in sight but will also help in protecting you from the elements of nature. Multi-purpose, multi-terrain shoes would be ideal. And when you're buying your shoes, here's what you need to check for!

  • Foam Padding
  • Sole Thickness
  • Ankle High
  • Waterproof
  • Comfort
  • Thick Laces
  • Grip

 

Wherever you choose to go, it's absolutely essential to get the right kind of gear. Investing in a good backpack will go a long way. A windcheater and a torch should be right on top of your backpack! 

If you're still wondering if you have the right shoes, you're in luck. We've got a wide variety of outdoor shoes to choose from that would be perfect for any terrain.
