I have been wearing vibram fivefingers exclusively for three years now. I day hike in them, I exercise in them, I go to to work with them, I hit the beach and swim in them. I have tried wearing "regular" shoes now and again and they cause me pain. So the first thought that came to mind when my wife said let's go hike Scotland was cool I'll buy a new pair of trekSports for the trip. Then I started to worry that maybe I should buy a pair of hiking boots. I have never gone on a multi-day hiking trip, 4-6 miles a day at 3000' elevation change. I googled a solution but I couldn't find anything definitive. I am heading to Scotland in August.
Should I hedge my bets and buy a pair of hiking boots "just in case", or do you think I would do fine with a couple of pairs of fivefingers? Any opinions or links to where I can get more information would be appreciated. I am really looking for someone that has gone on a multi-day 60 mile or so hike, with their fivefingers, that can pass along a little advice.
