The End of An Era


After 12 years and thousands of miles in my beloved Garmonts, I've reluctantly had to admit that the traction is completely worn away, the ankle support long gone, the leather permanently parched. I mourn them like the good friends they've been, but it's high time to move on. Out with the old, in with the new.

My new Asolos are lighter, more "sneaker like", and better suited for the day hiking and lighter packing I'll probably be doing more of in Missouri.

I wish boots came with built-in odometers and GPS units, so I could relive where my Garmonts have taken me, and see just how many blissful miles we've traveled together.
