XC-09 - Lt Col (Rtd) Phil Watkins : XC-09 in 2 day Mountain Marathon

>>20 November 2007

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank UK gear. Having worn the PT-03 way back, straight out of the box for a KIMM (2 day mountain marathon), I had the opportunity to do the same again this year with the XC-09.


Both my son and I put them on from the box and completed the OMM (2 day mountain marathon) and neither of us suffered in anyway with foot injury or discomfort.


Whilst the shoe is not specifically designed for this form of serious off road, they were more than adequate throughout a very wet, muddy 11 hour event. For track running and general XC they must be outstanding, I will let you know.


I cannot wait to try the next design
