(“☺ —— A headcanon about my character’s feet.” <— this is sort of a lame question on its own so let me enhance it) Being that you're such an adventurer of unbeaten trails, do you prefer to go barefoot in the jungles, is there a brand of boot you prefer, or do you make your own footwear?

I do not travel the jungle barefoot, though I have done in the past. 

The last two centuries have provided amazing advancements in footwear that is meant purely for hiking, climbing, and difficult terrain. I tend to veer towards using boots like these, typically brown ones (though black is fine, too). 

I’m pleased to say that, after many Christmases of receiving gowns and jewelry from my son, he seems to have finally caught on (thank you, Louis) and has begun to gift me items I can actually use in the wilds—backpacks, wool socks, coats, durable outer wear, and boots. 

I actually tend to enjoy military issue, as they tend to hold up longer under stress than any commercial brand.
