I’m just back from two weeks of trekking in the Arctic, on Baffin Island. Within an hour of getting dropped off by the boat, my hiking boots failed, with the soles detaching from the body.

I used your straps (I had them on hand to hold items to my pack) to secure the soles at heel and toe, and amazingly, these held up for over two days of punishing treatment, walking over sand, stone, boulders and rough trail before they finally gave in (I’ve attached an image of the repair job). I figure they lasted over 30 KM/20 miles before the first broke. The others, while worn and torn, continued to hold up. While I eventually had to abandon the boots, your fine product saved me a great deal of grief over several days. Many, many thanks.
