I recent took my hiking boots to shoe repair shoe to get them resoled. These are the boots that I wear when hunting in Africa. I last wore these boots in Africa in June 2015. The cobbler saved my old sole for me to see. Amazing how tough the thorns are in Africa. The sole are hard rubber vibram style material. Even as tough as this material is, the thorns were still able to penetrate.

Hard believe that the thorns penetrated and were still embedded in the sole and mid sole of the boots. Thankful they did not find their way into the intersoles.

Not to take anything away from African thorns but we we have them in S Texas just as bad.
