I wore my homemade shoes on a hike today. I went up the Cold Springs Trail almost to the top. The shoes worked great! Very comfortable. The only thing I might add on a future pair is some cushioning to the sides at the widest part of my foot so if I bump a rock I'm better protected. Otherwise, there are no complaints at all. They are very functional and fit well.
Tarzan and Zelda are here for a visit. We're going to a concert tonight. Maybe we'll all fall asleep after our killer hike today.
