I am new to hiking. Wife has been hiking for several months and I decided to do it also to spend quality time with her. We hike in San Antonio Texas hill country. My question is concerening shoes. After a 5 mile hike thorugh the hills my feet and ankles are in pain from walking over the rocks and uneven trails. I weigh in at about 325 lbs so I know I need to loose the weight ( hiking is helping ) but in the interim can anyone suggest very good hiking shoes for cushioned soles and ankle support. right now I wear your normal pair of sneakers , tennis shoes....etc...etc.
