What you need to do is to take off your shoes and socks. Then put on your shoes barefoot and put the socks over your shoes. This way you will have a much greater stability and will not skate on the surface, which will help you to cover more quickly longer distances, and will protect you from serious injuries, while your feet will be at dry and relatively warm.

This technique you can use in the woods or on a glacier, where no one will ask you why you have put some socks over your shoes. In the city, however, there is another method to get more stability without being too obvious. This technique is suitable to be used and in natural conditions.

What you need to do is untie your shoelaces and get them out to one or two holes before the end. Pass the laces under the sole of your shoe as many times as they permit and tie them to the top.

At the same time no one would notice that your shoelaces go under the shoes.


I hope these tips help you remain together and get you out of going to the hospital.
