After a few blistering, icy blizzards it's time to send my Vans and feet to intensive care and get serious about the cosy winter months.

I hit the strip to sort myself out with some boots but was quickly disappointed with what was on offer. While half of the goods would leave me feeling like a sewage worker that hadn't seen daylight for as long as Craig David has had a hit single, the other half were so over done with ridiculousness with names to match (most likely adapted from soggy Italian takeaway menus). So it was back online to hunt down an old favorite. Alden.

Not the cheapest boots in the woods, but the quality will definitely out live any 5 generations of iPods. A worthy investment.
