My object: hiking boots
My story about it:
Some years ago, I bought a pair of robust laced boots with grip sole. I can use them in winter because they are lined. However, I have also used them as hiking boots during my holidays. With these shoes, I have got to know foreign countries on foot: on narrow paths normally used by donkeys, over rubble, through narrows canyons, and many other ways. These shoes have always secured my safe arrival. On my way, the landscape has become directly accessible, with scents and sounds and many new impressions that had been unknown to me before. When I now put on my boots they always remind me of the worlds that I have discovered on foot. The many scratches on the leather bear witness of my contact to those worlds!
