Casar de Caceres – Canaveral
We were just coming up to one of the bridges across the Embalse de Alcantara (reservoir) when the loop from one of my boot laces got caught in the other boot and I went flying over into the road. Two scratched knees, one broken finger on my left hand (home made splint working quite well) and a badly bruised right hand.
The very next day we caught up with two young German girls and the exact same accident happened to one of them on the same day and on the same stretch of road. She ended up with a badly cut knee.
We are both as they would say “on the road again”.
My laces are now tied to the very end – no loops left.
Hi all, there are so many threads in regards to footwear, many opinions, many different kinds of footwear. I know a common reply is: “use what works best for your feet” and “the same thing does not work for everyone”, while that is true it’s nice as a newbie to get some ideas on where to start. My wish is not to start another discussion I was hoping you could list what shoes you wear both during the walk and in the evening and perhaps a comment on why that works for you. Just to put some ideas in a beginners mind .
I’m experimenting with my Merrells (both the boots and the shoes) on a daily basis, and I’m finding that as Wonderful as these are for my feet, the laces don’t stay tied well. […] But does anyone have a solution? A trick? Another lace they’d recommend?
