New shoes were gifted to Mary and I this winter, allowing us to have a pair of "cleated" boots on
a permanent basis. It certainly makes it nice to have your boots set up with cleats all the time. No more slipping and sliding, at least when it is not self induced. The Simms Alumibites are money, easy to instal, durable, do not knock out , and get stickier the more chewed up they get.
In preparation for Forks, the cobbler went to work and installed both set of boots with new studs, Job One done.
