And what do you do with yourself when you’ve been back from the Challenge for a week and you’re still suffering withdrawal symptoms?
You go looking for a new pair of boots of course!
Anybody who knows me, knows that I am exceptionally bad at making decisions, so if you have anything useful to say that might help me, please do. Useful, mind.
I have had my feet properly measured and all that and tried on a few boots. On the shortlist Meindl Burma Pro or Meindl Softline (that in itself is a bit of an issue, as there appears to be two versions of this boot and I think the pair I tried were the 2011 version. That might help the decision making in the long run.)
As it happens, I had to go up half a size in the Burma, which puts me into the popular size that is trickier to get hold of.
I like them both. They are both very comfy. The Burma has a more rigid sole which I am lead to believe is more suitable, but I don’t know anything about the technical side (nothing new there then.)
I’m erring towards the Burma…
