acronyms, so technically these may be permissible, but I would
recommend you spell these out since most readers will be unfamiliar
with BGT jargon.

really help clarify (it's a good photo, but I wasn't sure what I was
looking for). I was guessing you meant, "the stitches ripped out [of
the upper? tongue?]" but I wasn't sure.

top after "blister" and start a new sentence, something like, "The
Renegade's are better...".

EDIT: You are projecting here by associating _all_ GORE-TEX products,
which is outside the scope of this report.

Edit: I don't think this last paragraph is really necessary, and as an
afterthought, raises more questions than answers them -- why are you
only thinking about washing them _now_ at the end? Why are you
considering adding wax _now_ verses earlier? Didn't you already say
the shoes were waterproof? I recommend removing this paragraph unless
you can add a few more paragraphs explaining a little more about the
experiences that led to these decisions, since it seems counter to
what you've already said about the boots.
