For those of you rockin the trail runners, do you ever worry about not having enough support when packing out heavy loads? I would for sure understand them for summer scouting and long treks, but when I have a chance of packing out meat I would think that something with some more support would be the smarter option.
I don't worry about more "support" from a boot when hauling heavy loads. I am of the mindset that my feet/ankles etc do a good job of support all year, so basically I try to get a shoe that feels comfortable that keeps my foot as close to the ground as possible within practical reason.
If the weather would allow it I would probably wear Five Fingers or something similar all year round.
