Everyone loves their boots- and everyone hates it when they have to carry around gross boots that get mud and gunk on everything- it's just- the worst. However, if everyone where to use carabiners to hook and carry their boots, they would find that this simple technique is neat and convenient.
Step 1: Let's Start at the Beginning
Buy a large carabiner clip that is about the size of both your hiking boots of the same pair side by side pointed in the same direction.
Step 2: Getting to Work
Open the clip one side at a time so that the carabiner is clipped around both boots, clipped to the boot around the laces in the middle of the boots.
Step 3: Have Fun!
Enjoy holding your boots together efficiently and without having to touch all the gross gunk on the bottom of the boots. You can hold the carabiner so that the bottom of the boots are facing away from you- and more importantly, not getting the bottom-junk on yourself while you walk with them at your side.
