GOOD BYE, MY TRAVEL BUDDY!

My Hi-Tec hiking boots had been my travel buddy for 7 years; been to Japan, Egypt, some European countries, many hiking trails in Taiwan and this time to New Zealand.

Maybe it was about the time for end of its life. On the second day of my New Zealand trip, the left foot of this shoes was broken. Then right foot one was broken on the day before end of this trip. I fixed them with glue, so I could still finish this trip, even went bungy with this pair of shoes.

This pair of shoes was bought in Hong Kong in 2003 and had been to many places. So I thought New Zealand would be a good location for end of its life. I believe my travel buddy is happy about this ending, so I just left it in New Zealand instead of taking home.

Today, I bought a new pair of Salomon hiking boots at a quite nice discount price. I think it can be my travel buddy for another 7 years.

老大...穿7年的鞋子!!也是值回票價了!!
想想...我家出國一定帶的Polo袋子,也是陪伴我們全家出國有將近10年了!!

我也沒預期這雙鞋能穿這麼久,但是他真的很耐。沒想到就突然壞在旅途上。

這雙好鞋還有得救呀!!看起來只是脫膠,找修鞋的重新上膠再車縫就可以了,保證可以再穿個三四年,如果現在就讓他退休,實在太可惜喔!!

B哥,其實橡膠鞋底內部也已經裂開了。
你就讓我買雙新鞋吧! 北新路上的戶外用品店都正在打折。

那你要不要考慮特勤靴呀??
跟你的傢伙比較搭耶!!

特勤靴我留著遊戲時穿,健行用的靴子比較實用,Salomon的健行登山靴打折後才3350,好看又舒服。
