As we are only going for a week, we pretty much only have time to visit Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca (yes, I am hoping to meet the great Cornholio). R.E.I. has been our go-to store for all the "supplies" that we need for the trip. A few months ago we went to R.E.I. during a "Garage Sale" event and bought our foot wear for the trip at a major discount.
My shoes for the trip. We aren't doing any major trekking, so we just need some comfy walking boot things.
The good/bad thing about REI is that you can return anything at any time. These "new" shoes are scuffed and have dirt in the grooves on the bottom. I bet their previous owners went on a trip, hiked for a few weeks, then returned these shoes when they were done with their trip. This is why they were able to be moved into "damages" and sold at a discount at the "Garage Sale" REI has every few months.
Originally $120.00, I paid $45.83 for my comfy shoes. Upside to buying used shoes: they are already broken in.
My boyfriend got these guys.
His shoes only suffer from light scuffing.
Originally $199.19, these shoes were purchased for $89.87.
I'm with my Little Man all day. He's kind of a big part of my life. :)
