For my Mexico trip a friend of mine told me to get a pair of hiking shoes instead of using my hikingboots. She had felt because of the climate and the prolonged wear of the boots that it got to hot and hence she bought a thinner pair in Mexico.
So instead of lugging a pair of heavy hiking boots with me I went and bought a pair of Haglöfs hiking shoes. After only having worn them while flying this far it feels good. We need to get used to eachother, but that will happend soon enough I'm sure of.
