A great read and a lot of fun. Somewhat shoe-obsessed, but overall quite engaging.

A history buff's fascination is realized by this article.
I still find I am more comfortable in the woods with sturdy boots. Thank you, Andrew for a great read!

I've been on BPL for a long time, and this is the first time I've left a comment on an article. I really appreciate the old time info, and to see how things have changed. I totally agree with your last paragraph-I still love the romance and adventure ofbeing in the woods. I often stop to wonder about the other hikers who have stood in the same place I'm standing. Regardless of the years between us, there is a shared spirit among all wilderness explorers.

I like my old and well taken care of Lowa Alpspitz and Vasque Sundowners when I hike.

I've tried the sneaker thing.The feet hurt and turning an ankle scares me

I realize my comment is a couple of years late but I love the last line of this piece. Great article for many reasons.
