Funny how different Climbing was BITD. The second issue was not complete without the Book of Boot by the master cobbler Steve Komito.

If your query is actually a real one, This Just In, Vibram and its other lugged competitors. Stealth was a couple decadesout still.

Thanks Stevie, for the article. I don't remember it

Thanks Steve for another blast from past. I remember this article. Komito was a Kool Kat.

The secrets of the boot, rebooted. Great article to chew on after boiling. Thanks Steve for the knowledge and history.

Thinking of rebreathing my own carbon dioxide and shriveling up on the floor. Submarines scare me...

Doh!

Apologies for my shameless and sloppy mixing of idioms. No editing thread titles unfortunately.

It looks like I will be interviewing Steve in the near future and part of that time will be spent talking shop about Boot Construction!

I'm stoked!

JimT- I contacted the administrators to help get rid of your headache!
