My shoes / trail runners never fall apart, the insoles go flat. I broke in three pairs of shoes for this trip. I decided to not take one pair because of weight and space. I was thinking about dumping the (2nd) spare pair because of my weight issue tonight. Duh - duh - duh. I took the insoles out of both of the spare pairs. I will take the insoles with me and not the shoes.
Now the dilemma is which "outer" pair gets to take the trip. Green, Yellow or Yellow X???? Sounds like a photo op to me!
