    Your welcome. The down side to the renegade is the cable adjustment. IMO it's a pain the the butt.

    I'm sure there are many ways to do this, but what I'm trying to avoid is having to re-adjust the cables every few weeks.

    So, it appears, the choices are to trim more frequently, or adjust the cables longer. When the cables (gap between boot and buckle) are longer, then when you pull them tight, the tag end will be longer.....thus the velcro...to adjust the strap length.

    My wife did have one come off, coming out of the Conasauga river ford on the Iron Mountain Trail....stuck it in the mud about 3 feet from the bank....glad she bought bright red!.....but she didn't have the bottom strap tightened enough.....which then kicked off a series of adjustments along with tightening the bottom strap a little tighter than recommended all while cold, wet, and muddy.

    Hey, the Renegades aren't perfect....so don't be afraid to try different things....all in all, I still prefer them.

    I just got an email from Easy Care that there's a new shoe in the offing. They are glue ones but no info on how they will be glued on.

    I would be interested to hear barefoot-proponent opinions on this as an option. Seems one of the biggest objections to traditional shoes is having "no expansion" of the hoof capsule when it hits the ground because of the nails and shoe being rigid.. wouldn't this shoe have the same problem? Or does that plastic wing (which I assume is where the glue would be applied) flex somehow? Wouldn't that flexing make the glue come loose?

    May I ask what these are for?

    I've never had any experience with endurance before, and these seem really interesting! :) Are they just like a normal easy boot?

    Thanks!

    Don't mean to direct attention away from the op, but here is a link to show the expansion and contraction that is possible in easyshoes.
