End of the road for favourite boots, and arrival of new ones.
After more than 30 years my favourite tall and rugged leather boots have reached the end of their useful life. Letting in water, split and detaching soles, failed seams and after many patch-ups, it's time to replace them.
And here's their replacement...
Shires Moretta Nella fully waterproof 18" tall leather boots.
They are a bit heavier than my old Viva La Diva boots, but much more rugged.
Because of current travel restrictions, I've only been able to try them out on a few local walks, but look forward to getting a lot of use from them on future country and hill walks.
Look out here for posts on these walks.
