Trailshoes vs the mountains

by backpackingbongos

Unfortunately the mountain won after a misplaced step, flimsy fabric proving to be no match for Scottish geology.

A real pity as these La Sportiva Raptors have been pretty comfortable and grip steep grass and rocks like limpets.  It has made me re-evaluate the wisdom of wearing slippers in the mountains.  But slippers are so much more breathable and comfy than boots…………

Off to the cobblers to see if they can be repaired.  I’m still keen not to get the boots out again until the autumn.
