Before all that, I have decided to strengthen my new pair of LaSportiva Crosslites before the uppers get a chance to start ripping. Shoe Goo is my strengthener of choice. My first pair has done many hundreds of miles and served me well, but for half of that time my balls (of my feet!) have been peeking out. I'm hoping that this treatment will delay the, ahem, 'exposure'. I'll let you know how it goes.
Old and new with preventive treatment at the ready.
Masked and ready for gunging.
Shoe Goo'd and curing for Friday.
