One layer closer to Nature!
#bootsandblades Nominated by @travisbower to show my favs. Unconventional as it is with all of today's modern footwear, my favorite footwear are my leather bottom moccasins while in the woods, and one of my favorite blades is my puukko, hand forged by Pasi Hurttila from Finland. An excellent knife, very sharp, very functional, very beautiful! A pleasure to carry.
For rough terrain or wet weather, I have other footwear, including crepe soled mocs but if I can get away with it, the moccasins with leather soles come out, sans socks. There is nothing like feeling the earth move beneath your feet as you walk through a field, or the feel of the uneven surface of the forest floor covered with twigs and leaves, and feeling that connection with the earth that comes from eliminating the insulating layer between you and the ground. It sets up an "earthing" environment otherwise not experienced with other footwear. Look up earthing for more information on it.
Disclaimer: the mocs pictured are the crepe soled version cause I was wearing the ones with leather soles.
