Boots thumbs up

by Radio Somewhere


Tonight was the first rain test for my new boots — a thirty-minute walk in some seriously heavy rain.

I kept expecting to be disappointed by a sense of moisture seeping in. But my toes wriggled happily in dry warmth all the way home.

When I took the boots off, my socks were slightly damp — but my feet had got exceedingly warm, so I assume that was just sweat.

The boots are from The North Face and replace a similar pair I wore for several winters. Last year, I patched them up with duct tape on the inside and Shoe Goo on the underside.

They have required no break in, are super comfortable, and look cute with a skirt. Now if it would just get a bit colder so that I could really enjoy them!
