I recently picked up high ankle trekking shoes of a brand called "Kilimanjaro" from Europe , I have been hearing about this brand & finally invested about INR 4.5 k in the shoes with a vibram sole , If any one has used them let me know !!
Before this I was using "Lafuma's" which were around the same price which I bought from a store called Adventure 18 in Bombay , but lasted me only 3 treks above 5000 mts ++ and then gave away . I was thinking they would atleast last me 8 - 10 treks high altitude treks .
Can someone suggest how many high altitude treks should a good shoe be able to survive . Also , Is there a choice in India really or are we still looking at woodlands and Quecha's ..
