Austen Heller Peytons

Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Boot

So much for thinking that winter might be over and snow-covered streets were behind us. It’s not that I particularly dislike the snow. It certainly looks better than the dirty slush left behind as it’s melting. But I’m sick and … Continue reading

Clarks Korik Rise Gtx

I didn’t get out into the woods as much as I would have liked this past year. There were a few times and they were quite memorable, Guadalupe State Park in Texas and Přírodní Park Šárka-Lysolaje in Prague, but in the … Continue reading

Thorogood Dodgeville Boot

Add another name to the canon of Midwestern footwear makers. The irony is that Thorogood certainly isn’t new, it’s just new to me thanks to, no surprise here, Huckberry. The Wisconsin-based company made its first pair of shoes back in … Continue reading

Lanona Shoe Co. Fireside

Regrettably I’ve only sat around the fire once this year. It’s difficult to do when your fire pit has rusted out, rendering it more or less unusable. Adding a one-year-old into the mix with an 8:00 PM bedtime complicates things … Continue reading

Minnetonka P.W. Driving Moc

Driving loafers may not really be necessary for the purpose they were originally designed for, but that doesn’t make them any less stylish. And while the shoe is European in origin, Minnesota-based Minnetonka has decided to put its own American … Continue reading
