I needed new hiking boots. I must confess, I didn't want to seem a shallow brand-loyalist, so I tried hard not to pick your boots. I briefly entertained a commitment to Wind River boots.... but in the end your fantastic track record (through snow, sleet, mountain, mud, and river.....), waterproof-ness, and Omnigrip won me over.
I tried so hard to resist.
Even in defeat, I must say that I do not regret choosing you You have rightly earned my loyalty, and I will never stray again.
