28" waist by dieting!? What was the diet? Water? I'd love to get a few inches off my waist. I'm currently a European size 54 or about a 38"+. When I was younger I was a 36" waist and I'd love to get back to that. Or was your healthy living LOADS of exercise?
Not in mint condition no but I still have a pair of Zamberlan Mtn Lite boots that are now about 17 years old. About 120 miles on the clock and still look pretty good. No fancy waterproof lining in these. Just a good 4 season leather boot, still very stiff. Served me well in the Lake District one Christmas and also well over one Xmas on the Isle of Skye. Sadly they don't fit so well now, the stiff tongue rubs the top of the toe next to the big toe.
