I've got pretty wide feet and like the looser fit that ladder lacing gives me. However, re-lacing that way shortens the length available to tie the laces (not drastically, but enough to be irritating in a first world problem kind of way).
So I was pleased to find a vendor that sells decent hiking laces at various lengths at a decent price.
Voila. Another first world problem put to bed ahead of shooting DIALW.
