Fitting:  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Hapy feet = a happy hiker/hunter/woodsman/worker...Do you get blisters?  Have you ever lost a toe nail because of how your boots fit?  do you have "weird" feet?  This is a demonstration of how to get the best fit from your hiking and outdoor footwear.  This workshop introduces a revolutionary new way to fit footwear by inspecting both the tops and bottoms of your feet, determining volume, selecting the proper sock, stabilizing foot beds, shoosing proper footwear for fit & usage, and how to modify as needed.  An absolute must for those who work and play outside!
