New Boots Acquired, Old Boots Retired

For 8 years now I've worn the same pair of boots every day. They've been splashed by the Pacific and the Atlantic. They've been in Canadian snow and Texas desert. They are very good boots.

But at this point you can see how clean my socks are while I'm wearing them and the leather has worn through in several places. There's no fixing that. They are done.

So I went and bought a new pair of boots today. I almost fell over at the price. A good pair of Redwing work boots is insane. And will they last 8 years like my other pair did? I doubt it.

My feet hurt from breaking in new boots. Bleh. I hate new boots.

And as our feet get more life-weary, the shoes get more cheaply made!
