Goodbye my old friends. You were supportive, warm, comfortable and protective. You sacrificed yourself to keep me dry and kept me from slipping. But at the end you just had to open your mouth so you have been replaced with newer, better looking friends. You will be missed.

Well I was going to shoegoo them, but three of the quick lace tabs are broken. The upper part of the heel on both boots is cracked through where only the lining is protecting my feet, the tongues are both split on one side, the have multiple places where the stitching is popped loose, and the inside lining has multiple holes through them from rubbing up against my tough feet. Had I paid the $217 full price for them they would be getting repaired in some fashion, but since I got them at the discount shoe store for $45 3 years ago (factory seconds because the laces were different colors ROTFL) I think I have more than got my money out of them. Unfortunately they didn't have another pair like them, but I got another pair of Wolverines in a different style for $75. If a pair of boots lasts me a year they are good boots. The old ones hung in for 3 years. This is like putting down an old dog that is suffering.
