    Day two with the new footwear. Didn't notice it yesterday, but today the internal 'seam' at the rear of the boot (why the hell does it protrude inward?!) chaffed the hell out of my Achilles. Granted, I wasn't wearing my finest boot socks, but this isn't supposed to happen.

    Before I send them back, got any tips on how I might rectify this problem (short of Moleskin every day)?

    Go barefoot for a year. You won't be so picky then.

    Ah, it is nothing a road trip with Willie Nelson can't fix.

    Must you wear these kind of boots just to make a fashion statement?

    If you're not in the military, why do you need these?

    I don't know about no work boots that look like that.

    The only people I see wear boots like that are soldiers or skin heads.

    This is a work boot:

    Why do you choose black? Is it required? I can't even begin to imagine the discomfort and downright nastiness that is accompanied by those boots when working out in the heat.

    The most comfortable shoes I have ever put on.

    And I'm a picky son of a motherfucker when it comes to shoes!
