This is in the middle of the nature reserve. Presumably a hangover from when the military owned the area during WW2.
I’m all laced up for business. Apart from being comfortable, these boots are also waterproof. If they get splashed the water rolls off – and so does the dye.
I don’t intend to walk in dye, or to splash it – but if accidents happen I know I’ll be safe. The denims? Ah, they are a different story – but a little bit of extra colour won’t do much harm 😉
