Still want something I can walk in with a degree of comfort though, so don't think my Gaerne Skywalk MX boots are going to cut it for me. Hmm, any suggestions on that?
I think the Midlands are the best choice. Ironically they not that dissimilar to trials boots. They may even work for both applications.
