This is the last thing I wanted to do a week before the start, but I have had to buy a new pair of boots. My well worn Scarpas have only recently been giving me blisters on the back of the heels with heel lift. Multiple socks and lace tying haven’t fixed it and I think the padding at the back of the boots has “gone” making too much room for the heels to move. Anyway, great service at Bivouac from Jemma, and I have got a pair of Lowa Men’s Ranger III GTX Hiking Boots. Much tighter in the heels, so I will see. Need a test tramp.
