Considering footwear

One of the hardest things to select is the footwear.  While it will be relatively easy to keep the suit away from the elements, the shoes will be cycling, hiking and tramping through all kinds of weather.

Dean from Copperfield sent over a series of possible options.   I am considering the short-boot, with military tread (see pics below).  I think it will wear well and hold its look.   Dean is brokering a meeting with "the Bearded Buffer" a shoe enthusiast who will be one of the people we interview for the project.
