I was walking in the Lake District this weekend. My first time there for a proper walk. I was wearing my normal off road trainers and we decided to jog some of the easier descents. My toes there being cramp into the front of the trainers and it was starting to become quite unpleasant.

I thank this for how to lace to get less slipping

Any other tips or shoe advice?

I find I need a fair bit of room for the toes when descending trails, far more than on normal roads. I believe this is very common.

Yep, not enough room on steep descents is an easy way to get rid of your toenails.

Conversely though, on ascents do you find yourself more likely to trip with slightly bigger shoes? Even an extra half size and I find myself much more prone to hitting stuff with my toes - maybe just not lifting legs enough obviously!

you get used to the bigger size.....

extreme descents will still put your toes/feet under pressure, but there should be enough room to descend most hills without your toes being squashed...
