A few weeks ago I shopped at Decathlon and bought a pair of hiking trousers for 8.99 and then wore them over two weeks walking in the Pyrenees. They were great! So comfortable and lightweight and they washed and dried so easily, far better than my 'expensive' Marmot and Columbia pairs.

I visited Decathlon today and bought another pair, 7.99 today! I'm going to use them as off road running trousers, my wife's friend is going to elasticate the bottoms for me. I might even use them as 'pyjama trousers' on my next hike, they are that comfortable!

I started off road running again from two days ago, something I havn't done since about March (injured my leg), my upper thighs at the moment are so sore and I had shin splints pain yesterday! None today, but my upper thighs still hurt.

Those of us looking for a pair of winter boots, could grab a serious bargain in Bettws Y Coed Rock Bottom.
Upstairs are ten pairs of unused Scarpa boots of various design, that for some reason they cannot sell, there is nothing wrong with them, other than their a few years old.
Some of the boxes  are a bit tatty due to storage, and either they were ordered by a customer who failed to collect them, or their stock from their branch up the road,
Most of them are full Scottish winter boots, totally unsuited to summer wear, and their all well under 100 a pair.

The biggest bargains, and way off the scale for your average Uk walker, are two pairs of unused high altitude Pebax shell boots, one a Scarpa Vega size 46 the other by Koflach, 80 each.

Limited use maybe, but a similar boot in design and application in their Cotswold shop up the road retails at well over 400, and the fact that they have them in stock, must mean they must sell them at that inflated price.

You may be correct, but, I would have thought the opposite, they originally stocked them as part of their stock-profile, have sold none (or very few) and hence why they have them in stock.


Cynical Moi ?

That certainly makes huge sense, and i cannot think a better answer.

If the Scarpa Vegas had been ordered by a customer, i recon a substantial deposit or a full payment would have been taken for them.
Few people would forget to collect such expensive boots.
