||Participants are recommended to wear a pair of hiking or running shoes which are suitable for long distance hiking.
||Shoes should have sufficient space for your feet. After the socks are on, there should be at least 1 cm space between the toes and tip of the toebox, because the toes will slide forward when you walk down the slope. If you do not allow enough space, then the extremely high pressure on tip of toes will lead to blisters or even damaged or detached toenails.
||Normal feet → Neutral running shoes; Flat feet → Support running shoes; High arches → Cushion running shoes
||Brand new shoes should not be worn on the day of the event; those with flat feet can wear support shoes with tailor-made insoles; prepare an extra pair of shoes for emergency; have a pedicure 2 days before the event to avoid injuries to the toes when going downhill.
