If you already have previous damage in the foot and ankle area or are already struggling with complaints beforehand, the risk of such an injury when hiking is particularly high. But poor-quality hiking equipment or the wrong footwear can also provoke injuries of this kind. Doctors complain that hiking boots that are already worn out are often replaced far too late.

The rule of thumb here is: You should replace your running or hiking shoes after 700 to 800 kilometers at the latest. If a shoe that is too old in many cases, it no longer offers you and your feet enough support , it lacks stability and loses its important support function. This eminently increases the risk of injury.
