Boots showed up today! Just been wearing them around at work and the house a bit, so far so good. No apparent hot spots I can detect yet. I'll Get some miles in them this weekend even if it's just walking the dog around the hood. They're nice and supportive without the overly stiff feeling. The leather lining is pretty plush, a nice change from gore-tex and synthetic liner materials.

Anyone have a favorite boot waterproofing? I've used Nikwax before and the old timer at the shop sang the praises Aqua-Seal. I'll probably give the Aqua-Seal a go just based on his recommendation but curious what others have had good luck with.

I dont know if it's available in the USA (it might be), but I bought a product called Biwell in Switzerland, and it worked wonderfully.  I eventually ran out of it, but it worked better than anything I ever got Stateside.  I think it is of Austrian manufacture.

I have plantar fasciitis and these shoes help a lot. I still have some heel pain but it's much better than before. I didn't have to my custom orthotics as the Orthofeet shoes come with very comfortable insoles. I am impressed!!!

I picked up a pair of Hanwag Berglers at what I think was a really good deal, even accounting for the shipping costs from The shipping does take a bit. Unless someone can point me towards a better deal, we will be ordering my wife a similar pair from them soon.
