9,000 Miles in my Lowa Boots

Recognize this place? You must be from the middle of nowhere, too.

By my estimation, I've put over 9,000 miles on my Lowa boots ~ in the last 4 months. Now, don't get too excited, I wasn't walking. Mostly my foot was pressed against a gas pedal ~ driving back and forth, staying close to a family that is falling apart at the seams. I guess it's just our year for such things.

As I was unpacking my car last night, I noticed I'd left town in my garden shoes. Though I had a big suitcase of clothing, I only packed that one pair of shoes.

I've become a bit of an evangelist for you, Lowa. I own your boots, your sandals, your snow boots. I even sleep in one of your t-shirts. I think they're the most comfy things I've ever worn. (The shoes, not the shirt.)

I'm a self-appointed expert because I've fallen prey to every sales pitch, in every catalog, when it comes to garden shoes. Problem is, they just don't cut it. Lowas do. They have the type of sole support that gets me through a long day and doesn't hurt when I'm stomping a shovel into hard ground. But, the coolest thing of all is how they have self-cleaning treads so mud just falls right off.

Anyhoo. I just wanted to send you my own personal love story. I know Lowas are not made specifically for gardening but they could be should be.
