It’s time for some new walking shoes! I have had these walking shoes since Summer 2005, just about 6 years, and I have worn them most days during that time. They have been on the beach, and got wet and sandy, up on the downs, and got wet and muddy, and have very worn down soles.
For a bit of fun, we tried to estimate how many miles I have walked in them:
40 weeks per year(I don’t usually wear them in the summer)
7 days per week (dog walks)
1.5 hours per day @ 2mph
= approx 5,000 miles!!!
Au Revoir, old friends! See you in the garden.
We visited Peglars, in my new favourite town, Arundel. It’s a specialist ‘expedition’ shop (actually 3 shops) and is worth a visit just because the shop assistants really know their stuff and always have an anecdote about walking in the Lake District or Snowdonia! These were the first pair I put on, and I was bowled over by the comfort and fit! They feel like they are giving my feet a hug! I’ve already road tested them, a walk up the downs yesterday morning, and into Worthing town centre last night. Wonder if these will last 5,000 miles?
