Don ’ t put on a match of boots right out of the box and put on a 20 pound ruck and go running on asphalt. You will get blisters and besides cause extra affect to your joints and ligaments that is not needed. Break in your boots slowly and then go hiking on trails with softer ground. After the boots are broken in you can add a backpack with 5 to 10 pound of weight ( gear and urine ) and continue to hike. Slowly add more miles and hills and if your body feels good then slowly add more weight .
