I'm just trying to emulate Canada's best orienteers! :P
So I've actually done something a bit similar to this. Before I skied my first 50k, the zipper broke on my skate boot. I decided to use my pursuit boots instead, but they look very similar. So naturally I ended up at the race site with one of each, both for the right foot, and with a broken zipper (and it was -20!!!).
I ended up having to borrow the sampler prototype boots for Madshus' next year's model and it was a size too big. I had to wear two pairs of socks.
The best part was that I actually raced really well, and when I returned the boots, the rep told me to contact him if I wanted a pair next year.... and that's how I ended up with a Madshus sponsorship
