Whilst cleaning my budget boots of 5 years standing today I discovered the connection between the sole and the upper on the left boot under the toes no longer exists
So google got a good work out this morning and I found this fantastic article/review which might be of interest to others.http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Hiking-Boots-Reviews?full_site=yes
While it will require your indulgence to read the full review it is well worthwhile IMHO and very recent, November 2016. The Buying Guide is also very useful.
Bottom line - I need new boots = editors choice = Salomon Quest 4DII GTX
Does anyone have a pair? Or the other two of the top three picks by the editor?
Your feedback, comments please.
