Back to the 2 triangle farsteners. A new theory emerged that larger ribbon loops might make the farstener areas more flexible. 2 loops can be enlarged, but a 3rd loop is too close to the pavement. It would have to be sewed instead of hot glued. Also, eliminating the cord locks & fixing the toe strap length might improve the toe strap. The lion paws have to heal from the last experiment before trying these on.
Rubber cement has done a better job than hot glue at farstening the suede to rubber. Suede continues to work well at avoiding blisters from the rubber. Lions wash these after every run.
