Picking Daisies in Wicklore
Wicklore - here it is, vis a vis daisies. From a Grade 1 Challenge Walker and Scottish Munro-ist. Buy either leather or not, with a good semi rigid shank - test them all out in the shop by bending them. The best you can get are those midway between the most rigid and least rigid semi-rigid shanks - if you follow. Forget 4 season rigid shanks - ie for crampons, unless you are going to Switzerland, for which you will have to harden your heels in them over several months. Do not buy "floppies" - they are for getting to the shops and back. A rand that goes 'round the whole front of the boot is good. As few pieces as poss is also good - ie more stitching means more chance of bursting. The best boy in our team wears Raichles and they come highly recommended. The new Brashers are very interesting. Brasher used to be a stage up from floppies - very well made but a bit low level: this has all changed in recent years and the new non-leather range is little short of stupendous. Give them a look. Circa £90 that of course is in the civilised North. Prob £500 euro in the South. Leather versus non-leather - very hard nowadays - for quality there is little difference, but if you want to prepare the day before you go out, there is no better way than via a reverie as you work Nikwax by hand into your fab leather boots.
