I've got new footwear too this month too, Kyle! A lifestyle change for
me. A pair of black size 46 Dansko, made in Denmark clogs. I've worn
them all month with sport jackets and sweaters and ties.

They are my clomper stompers. I use them as slippers as well after
wearing them all day. You just slip your feet right into them without
having to even lean over.

There is something strangely satisfying about this design which goes
back hundreds of years (just like the Leica).

I may deside I'm going to wear just them for now on. Get a pair of brown
ones today.

I wonder how good they are for parachuting?

Possible chance of spraining ones ankle?

Oh and it adds an inch to you so I'm 5' 11" now although i sit to type.

And they cost new about a hundred bucks. They last a lifetime or two or three.
