Outdoor deal of the day – July 23, 2012

Want to get more active and make more memories with your children? Try hiking.

You don’t have to carry a heavy pack and sleep on the ground for several days. You can hike in a local park or on a friend’s farm. 

The one piece of gear you do need is a good pair of boots (or trail shoes). These are the boots I own

Here’s what I like about them. They are:

  • COMFORTABLE (#1 thing)
  • lightweight,
  • waterproof,
  • have a sturdy support for my ankles,
  • breathable,
  • great traction,
  • soft, padded tongue,
  • and a nice heel cup.

I bought mine at REI for about $150. They list for $160 now. Today, I found them for $130 with free shipping.
