Through my reading of the forum, I've noticed that with turnshoes, people have issue with hills, grass, and other slick surfaces. With the traction noted in the issue, is there a special trick or way to get the soles a little less slippery?
I've always found it fascinating how much trouble people have, to be honest. I've never treated my soles with anything, and only find them to be slick when walking on wet, mossy logs/rocks and ice. Even going down steep inclines, I don't really have issues. Sorry I'm not more help... :/
Same experience here as Greg, I've not encountered traction issues with turnsoles that I wouldn't have wearing most anything else anyway (i.e. "greasy" mud). In many instances I'd say the footing is actually superior! I know a lot of people have problems generally when transitioning to "barefoot" or minimalist-footwear activities, as we walk (or should walk) very differently than we're forced to when our feet are caged up in the rigid box that is most modern footwear.
