Hiking is the perfect fat burner. But you have to do it in the right footwear, or you might expose yourself to unnecessary dangers. Before setting out to countryside, the hills, or even mountains, go get some decent shoes or boots. Converse, sneakers, or slippers are not made to trek for hours through rough, wet, or slippery terrain. Slithering down a rain soaked muggy hill in shoddy shoes is not my idea of fun.
