Just took delivery of a pair of Red Wing Beckmans in Featherstone cigar leather. Starting the breakin indoors today but there will be plenty of opportunities for real wear as the winter get started. So far very comfortable and the color is worthy of a good shell cordovan (maybe a cigar shell even!).

A brand new pair of "Canadian Boots" (Botas Canadienses) - Only €26,99 from my local Aldi and worth every cent !!
Very comfortable and warm, waterproof, slip-free grip on the soles, sturdy with plenty of support and most importantly fairly fast and painless to put them on and take them off
Removable inner boots (I took off the elastic) and put a silicon rubber insert under the right inner boot - I'm waiting for a hip replacement and my right leg is 2" shorter than my left and now I've got my new boots, walking is much easier and a lot less painful
I think I'll be getting a lot of mileage out of these boots before I learn to walk without crutches again !!

About a month ago, I stumbled upon some merino wool blend socks st Sam's Club, and figured I would give them a shot. On my days off, and when I work out, I wear Hanes ankle socks. It seems that every time I was them, I have to turn them out and remove cotton pills- annoying. So far I have not had the problem with these. I notice my feet sweat very little, if at all, when wearing the wool. Twice I have worn them two workouts in a row (don't tell my wife) with no stink at all. They even feel more cushiony. If I am getting this performance out of a low end wool sock, I can't wait to try good ones. I will be replacing all my socks (I wear cotton crew socks with boots) with wool
