    I used to share a bed sometimes with the lady who managed the Mastermind shop in Macau. Never got my head around paying Baht 5,000 for a plain white, crew neck T-shirt with "Mastermind Japan" screen printed on it. There were some nice pieces in the shop and some very ordinary bits at extraordinary prices. It started off as a niche punk brand and has stayed niche. Young Chinese guys and gals used to come into the shop and spend maybe half a million Baht. I saw one buy all the shoes similar to the ones pictured. Different sizes, he didn't care, just took the lot.

    The salewa soles are almost worn out at the heel and toe. The mid sole still has a bit of life left and I'll keep them for wet and cold weather in the woods.

    I bought a cheap pair of Merrell low cut shoes without Gore Tex. I'm up in the Deutsche Alpine strasse this week to see what they are like in warm dry conditions. So far they have been pretty good. The heel felt a bit strange and there isn't much ankle support but they feel comfortable. I'm interested to find out whether the sole will last until I get back to Thailand. I may go for one of the upmarket models if they do.

    The one boot that didn't get put through the wood-chipper in "Fargo" was quite iconic also.

    Some interesting selections of walking shoe/boot in the posts above. I wonder how the owner's feet will feel after a walk in the country.

    We were caught out yesterday with some heavy rain for the last hour. We had jackets and trousers suitable for wind and light rain so they were soaked through as you'd expect. The Merrell shoes are not waterproof but my socks were dry when I took them off...about the only thing that was. I reckon they would have lasted another 1/2 hour before letting water in, maybe a bit longer, but still good for a breathable shoe.

    At least with cheap you don't expect too much. Sole could do with being thicker, I could feel the gravel underfoot. Weak ankle support is good for me because I have weak knees.

    Wife didn't fancy the walk up to Hündlekopf, so we took the cable lift...

    There's also a great toboggan run for the kids by the cable lift.

    Thanks for the memories, although my hiking was done in Switzerland, it looks great.

    One month later and the soles of the Merrell's are starting to show signs of wear already. I'd estimate around 200 miles walked in them so far, which isn't very much, and I doubt they will last until Christmas. The lack of ankle support is also a worry and I had problems walking with a 25Kg pack and had to don the Selewa's. Mind you, that pack was way to heavy for me at my age and was only for a short haul...

    Wife takes the credit for the mushroom haul...

    ...but I found quite a few as well including this beauty, weighing in at almost 11oz...

    I also found a Violet Webcap (Cortinarius violaceus), which is not so common in Europe. Colour is quite lovely amongst the green and browns of the forest...

    I was swapping between worn walking shoes for the most part of the year while I was deciding which pair to buy next. The wife decided to buy me a pair to help me out, Columbia charter oak waterproof walking shoes. They fit okay but don't breathe at all making them horribly uncomfortable after about an hour's walking. I don't get on with them and they have been assigned an inactive post guarding my archived accounts in the basement.

    Don't allow the wife to choose your walking shoes... or at least be there when she's choosing.

    Anyway, I have plumped for some Salomon walking shoes this time, lightweight summer ones to see what they are like. Salomon are normally a little too narrow for me and this proved to be the case again when trying on various types of their shoe. However, the Salomon Outline GTX was a good fit (1/2 size larger than I normally take) and, more importantly, the wife approves of them.

    They've been pretty comfortable after a week or so and are very lightweight. I have been road walking most of the time, which is always a bit stressful and I'm interested to find out how the sole wears before deciding on a mid boot for the winter.

    Oh! and the wife has decided I have bunions on both feet, which is why my feet hurt and nothing to do with the shoes she chose. She wants me to wear a splint to straighten out my big toe...

    Some hiking friends of mine swear by Salomon shoes. My Merrell pair has been a good hike buddy.

    However, nowadays I use Tropicfeel shoes for my daily walks. They're lightweight and supposedly good for hiking too, but haven't tested them on rough trails.

    Same here, but I have always found them too narrow for my feet. The ones I have are very comfortable on roads as well, especially the heel, and I have increased daily walking by a couple of miles. Definitely considering the mid boot for hiking this autumn/winter.

    They are driving shoes. You probably have some "faggy" bike rider shoes dont you. This is my edgy pick for shoes. Hugo Boss shoes is what I have.

    wtf are you wearing anyway.
