bear in mind that just to the north of you is a hiker/kayaker that wears size 9 trail runners. might be converted to boots if the price was right. ;)

I'm just checking back to see what you did with them and how they turned out. I hope that you found a way to make them comfortable. Let us know.

Actually I put them aside for now but did buy a couple baseballs.I plan on wetting down a pair of socks well and do a lot of laps on my backyard trails,then put the balls in there and let them dry that way..try that maybe a couple times..and wear them around town more.
Taxes and other junk is getting in the way right now of doing any trails or anything..might be 2-3 weeks before I see any real trails,even day hikes.I'll get them usable...
