Snowgum merino is sourced from 100% Australian superfine merino. Snowgum merino is extremely fine and can be comfortably worn against the skin. Forget past experiences of itchy wool, superfine merino is so comfortable you can wear it as underwear. A huge advantage of merino over other synthetic underwear fibres is that it naturally absorbs odour meaning you can literally wear it for days on end without stinking, and it can easily be washed out on a warm or cold washing machine wash. Superfine merino dries much faster than traditional wool or cotton and it retains its insulating properties even when wet – unlike many other fibres. It is a very sustainable fibre being made from grass, air and water, completely sustainable and completely natural.
Essentially the key to an enjoyable trip is having comfortable and dry feet. Choosing the right footwear is critical. The sandals, shoes or boots that are chosen must be comfortable, durable and supportive. Footwear should be purchased and broken in well in advance, thus helping to prevent any blisters or discomfort while travelling. If travelling in a wet area consider purchasing footwear with a waterproof membrane, which will keep your feet dry.
When selecting any footwear, a good fit is imperative for durability and comfort? Ongoing comfort and the well being of your feet. Many women will fit a unisex model but typically a boot, shoe or sandal in a "women's fit" will have a number of common features based on the shape of the female foot and may even contain technologies tailored to the different walking stride women take.
Common Features to accommodate a woman's foot shape are:
1. More pronounced foot arch - provides greater support and stability and avoids forward slipping.
2. Narrower heel – assists in preventing blisters from heel rubbing and increases lateral stability and sensitivity.
3. Lower overall shoe volume - for a more supportive and stable fit.
4. Narrower instep – gives a more supportive fit for the female foot.
