    My wife's been leaving jewellery catalogues all over the house. So I’ve taken the hint and for Christmas I’ve got her a magazine rack.

    Well I haven't had one but I'm not sure whether to be relieved or insulted.

    Yeah that one's been out a while.

    Ridiculous.

    That said, i bit the bullet with my last fell shoe purchase and got a pair of those graphene x-talons. Whether i'm just getting a bit better on my feet and it's actually coincidence, i don't know, but the grip has appeared to be superb. Even wore them in the National XC, which as anyone who knows Parliament Hill will know it is an utter quagmire.

    I had an email earlier. It's the new Parkclaw G280 graphene shoe with boomerang footbed whatever that is. I was vaguely interested until I saw the price....

    The x-talon ultra 260s have been brilliant. I've even decided to ditch Mudclaws in favour of them.

    Boomerang footbed: your foot always comes back to where it left the ground, so you never go anywhere.
