Why is it important to choose a shoe based on what you will be walking on - by which I mean on leaves in the forest versus up the wet and slippery waterfall nature trail.
The needs are very different, from waterproofing to grip, body in the sole to protect against pressure on your feet from walking over rocks versus flexible lightweight shoes for walking on concrete.
So terrain plays a part in shoe choice and I hope the guides below will help you decide.
