Shoes and Footwear for the Zombie Apocalypse

If the Zombie Apocalypse happened today would your footwear be up to the challenge?  You might have to run, fight, and then even walk across vast parts of the country to find safety.  Cheap tennis shoes from Payless might not cut it during a Zombie Apocalypse.  That's why I researched the kinds of shoes and hiking boots that are worn by long-distance Appalachian trail hikers.  The Appalachian Trail stretches over 2100 miles from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most rugged terrain in the eastern United States.

According to Appalachian Trials, long distance hikers chose to wear traditional hiking boots or a type of rugged shoes called "trail runners."  The most popular Trail Runners are made by a company called Salomon. If you want to find shoes that are up to handling the Zombie Apocalypse search for Salomon trail runners on Amazon.

If you are looking for a more traditional hiking boot, you might search for Merrell hiking boots on Amazon. With traditional hiking boots, you could get more ankle support and better protection from snake bite. A leather hiking boot would also help keep your feet dry in water and snow.

If you plan to outpace zombies who don't feel pain and who don't slow down, you need good shoes!
