Sounds like the wrong advice, doesn’t it?
In many cases it’s not. If you have a flexible, pronated (loose jointed) foot, a properly fitted shoe will tend to slip at the heel.

Perfect Day, Perfect Hike
Last weekend, some friends and I did the Williams Lake trail up at the Ski Valley. Even though I've lived in Taos for two years, it was my first journey up to the lake. It is AMAZING! Just over two miles each way, it's a pretty easy hike, and the views are incredible. Very dog friendlyand not too technical.
I wore my Patagonia Release trail shoes and my friends wore Saucony and Asics trail runners. No boots needed for this trail. We started around 9:30 a.m. and got back down at the perfect time to have lunch at the Bavarian Lodge.
The best chicken sandwich I've had in years and an ice cold German Lager were the perfect way to end a gorgeous hike! Sit on the deck if you can, but make sure you get under an umbrella. The sun is intense up there at 10,000+ feet! The Lodge is open Thurs-Sun so plan your hike on one of those days. You'll be glad you did!
