No really, my feet were like toast all day. I'd taken some safety shoes with me but my feet were so warm I couldn't face changing into ice cold steel toe caps.

I've worn the sandals for about a year now and I've no idea what they're made of but they really are warm.

I wore proper shoes last Saturday when I went to Ipswich to collect the Xantia, result, cold feet all day. :lol:

I was wondering about that, if it was some clever way of making your body feel warm by keeping your feet cold; like curing a headache by thumping your thumb with a hammer !

Going off topic - I suffer with raging atheletes foot and find that sandals (sans socks) whatever the weather are both warm and keep the fungus at bay far better than creams or urine.
I have a nice pair of Clarks efforts in leather - look very Jesus Boot - but strangely warm.

Theres usually a couple of stray sockets floating around a BX engine bay, one of mine did a trip to the south of france a few years ago and I got it back at the next service, looks like you chaps did a sterling job there, many hands make light work eh.
