Hike your way out of those winter blues this year

2018-06-20 06:00

WITH most of the long winter season still ahead, many have already been struck once more by the lazy haze it seems to bring with it.

Add to that the fact that the long school holiday is just two days away, and the will to keep active just slips even further away.

Fortunately, there is still time to prevent turning into the proverbial couch potato this year.

The lowest temperatures seem to be holding off this time, which means there could be time for one more weekend trip.

As the kids set to go on holiday this Friday, there probably couldn’t be a better time than now to round the gang up and set off on an adventure-driven hiking expedition. Keeping active and fit during the winter is a challenge, but it will definitely benefit you in the long run.

Along with every other item you and your family could possibly need to make your trip as stress-free as possible, the Co-op Mica also offers spectacular Hi-Tec hiking boots that are just the thing to get you to the end of that trail you’ve been thinking about hiking.

Hi-Tec offers a wide range of shoes, for both men and women, that are specifically designed to accommodate a number of your needs.

Some are designed specifically to be waterproof, offer comfort and keep you warm, all essential things when braving the cooler climate.

Their hiking boots and shoes are comfortable, durable and lightweight, and have just the grip to keep you steady on your feet.

Any seasoned hiker will tell you that the right pair of shoes can make all the difference in the world when you’re on your feet and moving all day.

When you are hot, sweaty and tired, the last thing you want to have to worry about is your feet.

The Co-op Mica also stocks Hi-Tec socks that were designed to be about as comfortable and durable as the shoes when you’re out and busy tackling that trail.

Hi-Tec socks also have a reinforced toe and heel.

They are made to last through winter weather, hiking, walking and other sporting activities.

Combined with those comfortable hiking shoes, you’ll be set for your grand adventure.

And who knows? If the weather holds, you could turn it into a full-blown camping trip for some extra bonding time with the kids.

Now, quit dawdling and make your way down to the Co-op to get your hands on those Hi-Tec hiking essentials.
