You’ll need a pair of low-heeled, thick, flexible-soled shoes that fit well. Walking shoes or cross-trainers are ideal. A regular pair of cotton-polyester socks is fine. Wool socks or socks made of syntetic materials such as coolmax, will keep your feet drier are better because they will wick away perspiration keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
Fall and winter:
Dress in layers. For above zero temperatures, you’ll need to wear a breathable windbreaker, polyester fleece, a turtleneck and warm pants. Below zero, you’ll need a toque, gloves, a warm jacket and pants and long underwear made of polypropylene that wicks away perspiration from your body to the outer layers.
Spring and summer:
Light cotton clothing should help you keep cool. Choose shorts that don’t chafe your thighs or a pair of lycra-cotton, form-fitting shorts or tights.
