I just cleaned three pairs of walking boots and three pairs of fell-runners (from which fact you can probably glean two things: we have too many footwear options and we’re not very diligent at cleaning them after each walk).
It was a particularly unpleasant task today, having this afternoon walked across a field that had been newly sprayed with slurry (eugh!).
Walking across the field was really quite awful. What I didn’t expect (given that we walked another 6 miles or so after that field) was for the mud on our shoes to still smell so strongly of slurry once mixed with water in cleaning them (eugh, eugh, eugh!).
Definitely Husband’s job to clean the shoes after the next few walks!
