Re: Shit shoes

Never had a pair of gortex lined shoes or boots that don't let the water/snow in.

On a pair of these right now

Used to have some old Swiss made boots from Millets that I covered in dubbing and they were water tight. But Gortex?

Fabric/suede boots, with a Gortex liner, will keep water out but you can't beat a decent leather boot. A lot of people seem to disregard the fucking big hole where your foot goes - if it pours down, water will get in. Always wear gaiters, if it's wet and if it's pissing down, wear over trousers over them.

I like the Country Traveller boots, them shoes don't  do much for me though.

Got some of those today in the sale at Go Outdoors. Needed a 'fucking about in woods and large areas of parkland' boot and these seem just the ticket.

Last forever them bad boys.  And look good while they do.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

On the strength of these two posts I'm seriously tempted to buy a pair - are they OK for knocking about it as well as walking in t'country?

Re: Shit shoes

First outing tramping through the mud at Miggy Park looking at copulating frogs in the rain. Back in the house, couple of wipes and they're clean as a whistle. What sort of witchcraft is this? Not seen such magical powers in footwear since Dorothy's red slippers.
