Yeah I'm stuck in boots for a while still. I had a pretty bad ankle/foot injury last month, then like an idiot reinjured it on Mossy Ridge Trail at Percy Warner by hiking in trail runners. Luckily my boots aren't SUPER heavy, and this time of year the gore-tex and extra warmth is welcomed also. I just have to make sure I don't injure it AGAIN before BSF.
