Boots.

Posted in Personal by Will on Friday, May 14th, 2010 ~ 8pm

Perhaps for winter, the “Columbia Sportswear Men’s Titanium Bugaboot Xtm Omni-Tech Insulated Winter Boot“.

And for other seasons, perhaps the “Men’s Danner® 8″ U.S. Air Force TFX Temperate Military Boots“, which one reviewer says are comfortable enough to sleep in, and which he took to Matchupicho, “walking twelve hours a day on very difficult roads.”

However, the previously mentioned “Hi-Tec Men’s V-Lite Mach 3.0 Wpi Light Hiking Boot” claims to be waterproof and is half the weight — only 21 ounces each boot. Versus 58 ounces each boot on the ones the guy took to Matchupicho. Also, this one is entirely artificial, whereas there’s leather or suede on the other, which might be frowned on. Unfortunately, the Hi-Tec, although lighter, might suffer from leaving black marks on white floors: “This particular style is not labeled as a non-marking sole therefore, there is a chance that it could leave marks behind” was the reply I received from customer service.

I can’t afford either, really.
