"Actually these days combat boots are getting pretty decent; Vibram has made some gear that, although I was originally issued for work, I now where out and about. Probably not the most fashionable choice, but they are multifunctional. "
"It really depends on what kind of boots you like to wear. Remember that leather boots rarely feel fantastic right out of the box, they usually have to be worked in over the course of a week or two of hard wearing. Then they form around…"
