    What boots to buy

    Went on a mission with 199p and my trusty old boots failed (7 or 8 years old) they were asolo boots they have been fantastic, but i hear they are not good any more. Who is getting good runs out of which boot brand and model? had to tape them up and tie it with rope. Not ideal.

    I got my 1st decent pair-Lowas z8 , now I wonder why I fucked around with cheap shit boots for so long. Kinda like drinking shit waikato or tui or DB for years and then having a good session on panhead or tuatara or Steinlager hehe.

    Outdoor Headquarters in Rotorua has some good specials at the moment, and Living Simply in Auckland have discounts on Lowa boots, both outfits do online sales too.
    I'm sitting the lounge wearing my new Lowa Renegades right now
