I have not clue what a pair of tailwinds is... ok, froogle says they are running shoes. You will
probably need a pair of terkking boots (not necesarily big hiking boots, the soft type will do fine)
for Torres del Paine, you'll do a lot of walking over irregular surfaces and will want to take care
of your toes, and nights ARE cold down there.

Also if you'll walk the Inca Trail (i can't remembering if you're finally going) you will certainly
need waterproof boots, it will surely rain in there, specually since these last weeks they've had
some serious floods ;( (saw it on the news again yesterday)

good luck on the quest for the perfect shoe kit !
