The legacy goes on - Toeguards
During the first session I quickly realised I needed toeguards. So today I went to a leather store and bought some pieces of cow skin.

As I tend to fall in a fashion of "sliding on the right boot", which is clearly visible if you look close at my xsjados, my legs and my kneepads, I'll be needing something more than just a toeguard for my right boot.
Me and my girlfriend thought of a heelguard, going from one side of the laces to the other through the back. Then, we'd add another slab of leather between heelguard and toeguard. That way I'd have sort of a "leather cuff".

How do you guys protect your boots from the evil concrete? Any ideas on what I could do apart from this? I like to have multiple options.
