Bronwyn Betterton - KZN Midlands

A few years ago, I embarked on a trek to Mount Everest basecamp in the Himalayas. When planning for the trip, I went straight away to Groundcover to source a pair of hiking boots, as I know their product well. I settled on the Trekker Boot.

Even though I did not have time to break them in, as recommended, I embarked on the 22-day hike in my new Trekker Boots through rain, snow, ice and rock. By day 2 the boots were perfectly molded to my feet and, through the journey, I did not develop a single blister. Although I have left the Himalayas behind, the boots still sit in my cupboard and are used for all my hikes including a recent trek to Machu Picchu!
