Issue

If the recalled AT2 Boots are laced loosely or untied, unlaced at the ankle support of the boot, not laced through the eyelet, or the lace hooks are left unlaced, etc., it is possible that the lace hook on the inside of one boot can catch on the loose cable on the inside of the other boot, posing a trip-and-fall hazard.

As of January 05, 2023, the company has received one report of a trip-and-fall in Canada that resulted in fall-related injury.
