+drsolly Posted July 10, 2010 Share Posted July 10, 2010 I discovered something new about wearing boots yesterday. Well, new to me. As I was walking along, my toes were hurting, especially going downhill. We were on a long route, and it was getting worse and worse, and I was starting to wonder if I'd be able to walk all the way. Then I thought about it a bit, and realised that as I walked along, my feet were sliding forward in my boots, my toes were getting rammed up against the front of the boot, and that was what was hurting. And then I thought, there's a way to relieve that. So I stopped for a minute, and redid my laces, making them really tight. Then when I walked along, the forward motion of my feet wasn't being transmitted to the ends of my toes, but was being spread over the top of my foot, and that meant that my toes were hurting a lot less. It would have been better if I'd done my boots up that way in the first place, but it really made a big difference, and I was able to complete the route (75 caches). My toes are fully recovered today. Quote Link to comment
