Palladium boots until I ran across them in Lombardi Sports on Polk St. in San Francisco. My grandfather used to buy me surplus Foreign Legion boots when I was in high school and college. They were a standard "go to" shoe for me for years.
Light weight and built much like a canvas sneaker but with a lug sole and far more support, they make for an incredibly versatle shoe. They're the kind of boot that keeps you from beating up your feet while not being so heavy as to make you regret wearing them 15 or 20 miles into your day.
After tromping around San Francisco for a couple weeks in my new ones I'm happy to say they've managed to improve on an already great product.
