It’s amazing how rapidly dragging a tire will pulverize your foot wear. I have absolutely shredded down my old skull crusher boots. I name them as such because when the going gets tough, these are what I go to.
This particular pair of Vasque boots have seen service in Yellowstone, Greenland, Europe, Washington, the Rockies, the Sierras – just about everywhere rough and tumble. They have seen 120° and they have seen -20°. Every time, these waffle stompers have worked perfectly.
So, the old pair are being replaced. I do have some shoe repair material to level them out and maybe make them half serviceable for lawn work but they’re done otherwise.
Long live the trusty boot.
