After reviewing the ranking of best shoes from online sources I discovered the La Sportiva hiking shoe. The review that I found most helpful was that if foot support was a high priority (at 67 it is) and a hiking shoe that would feel as good at the end of the hike as it did at the beginning then La Sportiva was a great choice.
The construction looks solid. They are very comfortable.
I can't say enough about the excellent online chat I had when making the decision on the shoes. Also, I received two e-mails--one just as I placed the order offering any additional help with making my decision about which hiking shoe to buy and a second follow-up message. Great customer service. Thanks Zoe and Backcountry.
I'll be spending the summer at Scout camp. I will certainly do a follow-up after camp.
