Welcome to 2013. Everyone at Sporto Boots hopes that you had a great Christmas and New Year.
The change in the weather has led to bitterly cold temperatures over the Uk and this is where Sporto Boots really come into their own. I was recently lucky enough to travel down past Exeter to almost the most westerly part of south England. Here I experienced fog, rain, and lots of green grass, hill mountain roads and watched people surf and fish, even in the near zero temperatures.
What I enjoyed wearing my Sporto Boots:
Jagged cliff tops, treacherous winding cliffside roads, green grass, gorgeous trees, lots of mud, and an amazing view out into the sea to the south of England.
We arrived early in the week and there was little in the way of traffic! However as the week wore on it started to become busier. I can imagine how a holiday seaside resort like this gets supremely busy during the summer and you must be fighting for parking spaces everywhere.
There were some lodges nearby a little further down the mountain and all were kitted out in decking, and when taking a wander the sportos were grippy and helped with footing. This came in handy when going up or down the muddy and grassy banks, and before long it started to rain. Neither I nor the sportos cared as I kept going, and looked down upon the city below. I’m glad my boots of choice were around when I needed them, the weather was particularly unkind.
Every day there was a dense mist, at around 3pm, and driving literally became a nightmare as you couldn’t see more than a few feet in front of you when you were up on the cliffside. This passed fairly quickly but would come back with a vengeance at night-time, when visibility was limited to immediately in front of you.
I managed to get out on the second day to workout outside. Nothing serious you understand, but I put in a good effort and worked up a sweat – a standard array of squats, jumps, and running up hill was made a breeze thanks to my grippy sporto boots and I never felt like I was going to fall flat on my face! The grip on these really helps in the mud, yes I was training outside but I didn’t really want to risk falling on my face and getting totally soaked. The only issue I had with them was that they were (as you may have guessed) covered in mud, and you need to rinse / wipe them immediately when you get inside really. I was too lazy and had to clean them of the next day.
After a few days staying up here it really helped to clear my head and make me think about what I needed to think about. Hope you enjoyed the pictures, I’m sorry they’re so dark and hard to make out.
