I'm sure there won't be too much variation of shoes in photos around here. My shoe of choice for many years has been moccasins. I was a barefoot child(oh I mistakenly stepped on so many bees, poor things) and that rarely changed as I grew. Any chance I got, the shoes came off and for many summers I had proudly achieved some very tough soles. For the sake of the general public and all the sweet bees in the world, my mother brought me back my first pair of moccasins from a roadtrip. Then my grandmother shortly after gifted me a pair of hers that she had since around my age(and I'm still wearing them years later).
I take them with me everywhere, hiking included. I love feeling the different places I travel, most especially when I am in the woods. They give me a freedom that other shoes don't allow and I feel my feet work in different ways for climbing, landing, running and everything in between. There is nothing quite like wandering off trail when winter is transitioning into spring and the snow has melted to reveal layer upon layer of soft decaying leaves as your walking grounds.
I bought this elk skin pouch from a woman by the river who looked me in the eye and told me in all seriousness it would last me forever.
Thanks for reading,
