New Wheels!

I had the opportunity to test two new boots/shoes from Kodiak. They’ve been Canada’s boot maker since 1910. That’s 111 years if you remember your grade school math!

CLICK or TAP HERE to read about the FIRST pair I tested. You’ll see more information and all the features. I should have the second review for you next Sunday.

That’s enough for a Sunday, right?
