A C21st kit issue.

Today my combat boots/desert boots finally gave up, after several months’ daily use.  The steel bar in the sole popped out through the instep, simultaneously on both boots.  So I chucked them in the bin and got out the back-up pair.  First job: coat the new boots with leather protector.  I did notice that the pair I just chucked away were noticeably darker on the front of the right boot from playing football with Sparky.

(Sparky says: “Sparky does not care about your boots.  Just play Ball with me”).

Time to buy a new back-up pair of boots.
