Despite what I said about Red Wings and considering the cold weather when now looking at gear, you can’t go wrong indulging in the simple shoes, even if they won’t see the light of day until well past the cold season. So what if I buy a pair of seasonally-impractical shoes, anyway? Because those make the best house shoes. Noone wants to wear boots all day then come home and NOT slide their peds into something less than absolutely comfortable. And while I have NO idea whatsoever (yet) as to whether or not the Bagua shoe (above) or the Warrior Kung Fu (below) are comfortable, they do look like they’d be exponentially so. Time (and a few dollars) will test that, though. And, hell, nobody’s footwear collection is complete if they don’t have a shoe with the name Kung Fu in them, or a model inspired by the ancient form of martial arts. Sold. On at least one pair. Now I suppose the only question is: lace-up or slip-on?
