. . put on old boots that I havnt used in years, as I needed them for something. They looked quite shiny (once dusted) and in good order, despite having been in my garage growing old and dusty for most of that 20 years. Still very comfy and were looking good until I started to walk and the soles fell apart with great big clumps of rubber falling off! And in no time they looked like I'd tabbed round the world and walked through them! Looks like the soles have perished or is it my soul and thats another story! Now my ques is, is this the standard of kit?! Fall apart after 20 years! No really my ques is can they be resoled as they are really quite comfy and well worn in as you can imagine! It doesnt look to me like they can and wanted to check arrse opinion before a cobbler laughs me out his shop!
