Smartest boots for rural journalists

18 days ago Lifestyle0

I’ve investigated stories in muddy greenways wearing pumps, rainy hayfields wearing sneakers and snowy streets wearing flats. I admit: I haven’t always been the best judge of shoe matching to weather conditions, but that’s because the only thing on my newspaper reporter radar at the time is getting the scoop and submitting my story before deadline.

Once my new Women’s Belted Collar Western Boots from Durango got to my doorstep, I put them to the journalist-on-the-job test. Working on a few feature stories in mucky areas of Middle Georgia proved these full-grain leather boots were built for backwoods editorial work. Why my 2-inch-heel, belted beauties country Western win on the clock:

They’re rough and tough. Designed with rubber outsoles, these boots feature a sure-footed foundation for working in the elements and on rocky terrain.

They’re fashionably flexible. Some boots have a stylish appearance but stiff shaft and instep. These are the polar opposite, supporting and moving with the calf, ankle and foot with natural ease because of a cushion flex insole and fleecy, mesh lining.

They’re conveniently calibrated. Framed with an adjustable top strap to secure the tip of the shaft around the calf and tailored with side zippers for trouble-free putting on or taking off, the boots adapt to your leg size and choice of bottoms — whether skinny jeans or jodhpurs.
