I'm wearing something slightly similar.
Before I left home in December to hit the road, my corpsman friend said that if I needed a pair of boots, I could grab his barely worn pair from his time at Club Gitmo. Since my Redwings loggers were beyond repair (Hey, I had them for 10 years... they more than served me well), and were beyond comfortable, I said fine. I figured they would be some standard issue Bates or whatever the flavor of the week was at the time of purchase. I ended up with a pair of Oakley MK-II 8" rise boots.
A free pair of boots that fit like a dream, and made in America...thank you Uncle Sam, and thanks to my friend Doc! Even though they are designed for warm... ok HOT environments, they have still been decently warm even on days here in Iowa with windchills in the -20's. They dry out nicely, and have excellent snow and oil/grease traction, which is fine by me as I have been doing a decent amount of walking every day.
