On yesterdays hike I discovered my right foot was coming out the side of the boot. They were used up anyway, with cuts from sharp rocks, and the tread worn nearly down.
Today I will disassemble them for salvage. Keep the leather, and trash the rest. They will receive a proper burial befitting trusted friends who "Supported" me for years. A healthy shot of "Resposado" 100% De Agave Tradicional shall salute the stalwart performance.
