I had my first mountain climb recently and it was a great experience. It could have been better if I had better shoes. Knowing what it feels like to climb, I have learned what I wanted.
For me the best footwear for the beach must be light. Can protect your feet when swimming on a rocky area and from stingy creatures. It must look good with your clothes too so you don’t have to bring too many footwear for your photos. Can be removed fast so you can relax your feet. It must be waterproof.
