I hate it when...

... my favourite pair of boots that I wear when it's cold, wet or both springs a sudden unrepairable leak in the sole, right under the ball of my foot. For no apparent reason other than 'wear', when there's still a good quarter inch or so of sole left. It's a half-inch slit...


I wonder if Barratts still do kiddies' black leather boots in 4 1/2 for around the £25 mark? If they don't (and up until Christmas), my only other options are:

> Not hugely comfy but completely waterproof up to my shin - motorcycle boots.

> Somewhat ungainly, soft leather, not very warm without a thickish pair of socks and not quite as high as my old ones - steel toe-cap & midsole workboots.

> Not waterproof and not very warm, not boots - trainers.

> Not waterproof in heavy rain, not boots - work shoes.

> Not waterproof in heavy rain - walking boots.

I'm wearing the walkers for now, when it's cold or wet. Thankfully I've neither had to be out much more than going to work for which I have work shoes nor has it been too cold so I can wear trainers. it's also not thrown it down while I've been out :)

My winter work shoes are great; lovely and comfy and water resistant and warm, but not boots! My summer ones are uncomfortable to walk long distances in.

Thank you for the luck!

I've seen plenty of muckers :)

I really like sandals, but they have to have at least two straps across the front and one at the back, be cushion-soled and I can't wear them without socks :D

While I doubt I could talk for as long as you about shoes (not that I really get the chance either), I am rather particular!

I always used to wander around outside in socks (and get told off by Mum for making them dirty) because it was more comfy than bare feet or shoes :)

Maybe we should start a sock-love group?! ;P

Woohoo, new friends! Shall go find you and make you pretty-coloured on my Friends' List :D
