I am looking for a super sticky hiker for scrambling and general hiking with a light to moderate weight pack. I normally wear a size 13. I have fairly wide feet. I bought a 47 and 47.5. The 47.5 will make it if I adjust the laces to their loosest configuration. BUT, the laces are then too short to ties securely. Does anyone know of a shoe that might be better for my use, or do you know the lace length on these, so I can simply buy longer laces. I don't want to pull these out to measure, because it looks like a hassle and I may be returning the shoes.
I bought a combo edge version of the Full Throttle on one of the forums, at a bargain price. The blue paint was beginning to scratch, so the owner wanted to get rid of it. When the knife arrived, the first thing that I noticed was the blade was razor sharp. Sharper than any other factory edge I have seen. (Original owner never sharpened or used the knife). The second thing that I noticed was that the painted surface felt gummy or tacky. I didn't like the feel so I removed the paint in less than 3 minutes. I like the way the knife turned out and, in all other ways it is a nice, handy edc. A bit awkward to open, but not too so bad that I would not carry the knife. I wish it had a flipper on it. Otherwise, it's a sweet little edc.
