5 to 10 years ago, I picked up these boots at a local thrift store. In pristine condition, except the soles are a hard as a rock because they are so old. (Leather, inside and out, is soft and pliable.) I was going to use them for snow shoing, but never did.
Last month, I won a gift certificate at a SAR fundraiser run for a resole...$50 off. The resole will cost me $5 out of pocket. Can't wait to get them back!
Those are awesome “retro” boots...! Italian craftsmanship. Colin Fletcher use to wear that brand. Nice job picking up the gift certificate! Congrats...
Life is a long walk forward thru the cars of a passenger train each filled with; strangers whose stories we never learn, dear friends we long remember and passing acquaintances whose names & faces we take in like a breath and soon breathe away.... So many cars, so many passages."
