The welly that thinks its a trainer

Have fun splashing through puddles while keeping your feet dry. Why did nobody think of this before. If you don’t want to sacrifice style then look no further than these shiny patent bad weather boots from Nike.

They probably won’t be a bit hit with the Volvo and Labrador dog walking brigade but [...]

Ugg boots - lack of support

There are lots of reports in the newspapers today about how copycat or fake Ugg Boots are damaging our feet because of lack of support. We’ve all seen people wearing Uggs (real ones and imitation or fake ones) shuffling around. Many of the Ugg boots seem to be broken down at the heel causing [...]

Lacing my new Ecco Boots

Here I am relacing my new Ecco Boots

Here are my new Ecco boots relaced. The laces are supposed to just go once through the first eyelet holes and the tab at the front of the boot. However I have found it is much better to go through the tab twice as it seems [...]

Customising Footwear

I treated myself to some rather nice Ecco boots the other day (Ecco Winter Zone). They are warm, cosy, lace up and very sensible for winter walking. However there was a design fault with the tongue. When I laced them up the excess bits of tongue doubled over and pressed painfully into the side [...]
