While the most common place for a trail stumble might just be when you’re tired and on that last section of easy trail on the return to the trailhead – where the smallest rocks seemingly become larger hazards, one other concern can be your shoelaces themselves. If wearing boots, your laces can catch on the lace hook of the other shoe – locking your feet together. Additionally, even in trail runners I’ve found that lace loops are prone to catching on fallen trees and limbs when hiking off trail. This can quickly throw you off balance, and especially with a full pack it can be difficult to keep your feet...
