Difficulty pulling on boots.

Postby Paul C » Tue Oct 25, 2016 1:16 pm

I have a problem with my boots that a lot of times they are very difficult to pull on especially with having ostio arthritis in some of my fingers. Does anybody know of any solutions that would make it easier, short of purchasing a pair of zip ones? :?

Have they got any loops in them? you could hook something into the loops which is easier to grip? My ones have a loop on the back of the heel reinforcing, and pulling on that gets them on fairly easily even when wet. They are the Alder Plasma 7mm.

Talc/chalk if boots are dry.

Patience if they're wet. Zips aren't the end of the world either. Probably not notice any difference when they're on?

Saw some zipped boots in a charity shop the other day and actually thought "maybe pick them up for future use".
