My husband’s Speedgoats are getting worn out really fast. Are there any outfitter stores in Leon that might have a replacement pair? We will be in Sahagun tomorrow.
Thank you!Hi Kasee,
This well known shop is very central ( close to the Cathedral of Leon) but there are many others around. Decathlon and K2 Planet more out of the city centre.
No idea if Hoka is readily available in Spain but there will be very good alternatives.
EDIT : they have Hoka. Woohoo!
Haven’t been wet yet. He pronates pretty badly and they are wearing unevenly. The orthotics he was using weren’t helping, so we will get some over the counter ones.I'm surprised they're wearing out so fast. I wore the same shoe on the camino and it was still going strong when I reached SdC (other than being very very dirty).
Are they getting overly wet? When you get the new pair, might help to stuff some newspaper in them at night so they dry out more.
Great idea! We don’t have any rest days, though. How long did it take?
We were just in Armería Castro.Deportes y Tienda del peregrino (Calle La Rúa) in Leon yesterday. Near plaza where Casa Botines is. Can’t recall if I saw Hokas but looks like they carry them per website :
definitely worth a phone call or drop in.
Indeed. A word needs to be said in favour of the Spanish zapateros - they can work wonders with soles, uppers, any part of the shoe you can mention. And it is an eco-friendly thing to do.
