  1. I am running a half marathon in Sept (Great north run) for H4H in green kit so I need a good comfortable boot to run in. Anyone ran this type of distance on that terrain before? Need advise on boots. Thanks
     
  2. Boots in Warminster High street is fine.............just a little slippy by the incontinece pants section....but in general your 13 mile jog around he ailses should be fine

  7. I would not run in your best boots, second best should do fine.
     
  8. So you will be carrying CFT weight for this "green kit" feat of daring do?
     
  9. There will be scales in Boots to check of course
     
  10. I found the old Combat High great for running in, far better than assault boots, matterhorns and the like. The problem now is finding them.

    Whatever you get, get some miles in wearing them first - yeah, egg sucking I know.
     
  11. Not your reply H3 them other 2 comedians. I cant wear issued they f**k my feet up on a 6 mile run so wouldnt like to see what 13 would do. Thanks for your proper reply though

  12. Only paupers and the great unwashed would ask this question, one should get ones manservant to carry out this task, the state of the wretches feet afterwards are of no concern.
