Hi all, just a quick footwear question!
I'm going RTW in March (India-Nepal-Thailand-Vietnam-Oz-Chile-Bolivia-Peru-California USA) and I'm going quite light (40l bag + 15l daypack). Thus I will probably just be taking a pair of jandals and a pair of shoes, so I want to buy a pair that would do me for 6 months, lots of walking but outside of Nepal there will be minimal trekking. I want them to look decent and not too hiker-ish.
I've been looking at a pair of Timberlands in particular but I'm not sure if they, or indeed any other Timberlands, would be appropriate for a round the world trip spanning various diff. climates.
Here's a link:
What do you think of these? Are they style over substance? I'm looking for a mix of style and rugged function, so I know there will be better ones purely for hiking, walking etc.
