Being a animal with the shovel....

So I went to a cobbler today and chatted with him for 20 mins...He was thinking for me use a stir up for my right foot.......Also he wants to replace the soul of my boot.


Bets part about it is that he wants to barter the work..

sounds like a win>win for me.

It's more and more on my mind as the temps get lower ect..

it feels like it will snow in a few weeks.

i've always wondered how the steel bottom boots would do in a digging application. I personally rock slip on steal toe's dr. martens... but I don't dig much anymore, just a lot of pacing.

Since it's too cold for us Nor' Easterly dudes doing any irrigation work, how bout a pic of your boot with the damage?

Does your shovel you're kickin have a wide flat area or a narrow edge? Might as well post a pic of that too!

When you get that boot fixed, post some pics. Mayber the cobbler will let you take some in-progress repair pics.

It'll be something different at least.

Here are my Beans. As you can see I'm a left footed digger. These have just been retired and a new pair came in Monday. I've tried a ton of different shoes but I find these beans twice a year work best for me.

i have more of problem with the stiching seperating from the sole than anything else... lately ive been wearing a pair of slip on merrells... and theyve yet to show signs of damage.... before that i had a pair of boots ive never seen before, Ecco.... i was really excited when i bought those, things weighed next to nothing... im not even kidding, these were the lightest boots ive ever touched in my life... and a carbon fiber section on the bottoms of the soles.... started to get a hole in the botttom after about 5 months, and the stiching started to come off the sole.... arghhh... i cant stand big bulky heavy boots... i like the flexability the mountain climing boots have... for all the kneeling down we have to do...

I'm not getting anything from this link. I tried finding what you were trying to show us at the Leonard site but can't find any thing specific. Can you doublecheck and repost?
Thanks

i cant quite see from that picture exactly what it is? is it just a pad that sticks on of some sort?? or a piece of metal that straps onto the boot??

I think it's a rubber pad that sticks on the "tread' part of the shovel.

Rotar, what kind of shovel are you using?

And which part of your foot do you use when you dig... (I know, dumb question maybe) I always use the ball of my foot. I've seen less experienced people come down in the middle of the arch (maybe OK when using thick soles.)

I also use shovels that come with a fat tread section, like these Kenyon Bullheads:

Or these from Zac:

Unfortunately, you can't see it in the photos very well, but they do offer more support.
