Well, that just makes my week a little bit more special.
I thought something was up with my nice, gore-tex lined North Face boots the other day when my right foot felt a little chilly and damp when I was walking through the dewed grass walking the dogs. After today's walk (rain, drizzle, dew, wet), I had a definitely damp sock and closer inspection of said boot shows numerous defects in the sole (cracks, de-bonding, odd small holes) and the leather upper (cracks, separation from sole).
I'm annoyed. I've only had them two years and have only really abused them once (Fan Dance in Brecon), the rest has just been dog walking and general use around a farm, the local area, shooting and the office. Is it wrong to expect a relatively expensive boots (100 quid or so) to last more than two years?
Anyway, I need to get a new pair of boots. Any suggestions? Must last more than two years.
