The timberlands are basically new.
The brown shoes are super comfortable but very worn. I wear these to work right now.
The Tevas are new and comfortable, but when my feet sweat they tend to slide around in the shoe.
The Nikes are in good shape and very comfortable.
Not sure which one or what combination to take when I hit the road hitchhiking and whatnot.
Your thoughts?

I swear by boots so go with the Timberlands but if you ever need a great boot for a good price, go with Carolina Loggers...

overall it comes down to what you think you can hike miles upon miles in comfortably. with minimal blistering. gotta take care of those feet on the road

I personally roll with a pair of boots, and a pair of sandals.
Mine being Doc Martens, and Chacos.
If you wear the boots the majority of the time, you only have to pack sandals, which don't weigh much. It's also really nice to be able to not have to wear socks when it's hot as fuck outside.
Options!

Well also something to take into consideration is your socks. Now, there's "rich people" socks (haha) with thermal blend and crazy sh!t like silk & then "working man" socks which are easily attained through Cabellas but a good wool blend is great for cooler temps & then ypur basic cotton.

Think cotton for sports shoes or sneakers & wool-blend for boots.

also keep in mind you will go through socks like crazy, and if wearing boots daily make sure you don't sleep in them every night boot rot is a mean bitch

The cheap ones if you are going for a long time. It doesn't matter the brand just get the best soles at the cheapest price. You are going to burn through shoes if you are moving. When you are a drifter nothing is permanent.

I would pick the boots and add a pair of cheap flip flips. The boots for walking/hiking and when you need good protection. The flip flops for when you want to let your feet air out and you don't need protective footwear.

I'm basically living in my flip flops. For me the most comfortable footwear. I have some boots, though. Rarely wear them.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
