About this deal

Also are the Ultra Bloom that great? Don’t they get slippery inside when there is moisture from water or sweat? Best I’ve found, drop-wise, is Danner Tachyons. I’ve never tried the Belleville Mini Mils. Neither are true zero drop. I believe Bellevilles are 2mm.

The American brand was founded in 1993, and over the past three decades has evolved from a company focused on integrating athletic footwear technology into boots for equestrian athletes, to today’s far broader ambition to create “products for all types of outdoor and work environments”. Case in point is their Skyline Mid waterproof boot.

Overview

I have the Belleville Mini-Mils. I’m 6’4″ with size 13 feet, and if I travel, a normal pair of boots takes up about half of my rollaboard. I got the Mini-Mils to have a compact pair of boots for TDY.

Peter Macfarlane recommends this winter boot after rigorous testing - but he has one single bugbear. Good god, I couldn’t agree more! Barefoot is one thing, why is zero drop so hard to find!! I could deal with a stiffer shank and padding for heavier, more technical marches. Keep the crazy flexible for lighter road moves/”tactical” operations. The shape of the boot looks a little different with a wide toe box and forefoot, which gives space for the toes to spread. There is little padding throughout the boot, including the ankle collar and tongue, and I felt some discomfort at the hooks after a while.The upper is made from wild hide leather, and softness and flexibility are immediately obvious. This provides the main waterproofing of the boot, as there is no lining, but it does come with Renapur balsam for protecting the leather. Between this and the mesh lining inside the boot, I had dry feet even after multi-day trips through boggy ground. Staying true to the barefoot philosophy, the sole is flexible and, beneath the lugs, very thin, allowing your foot to ‘feel the ground’. For walkers not used to barefoot boots, this may feel a little unusual to begin with, but for barefoot converts (and those wishing to be converted), it’s a liberating feeling and all part of Vivobarefoot’s ambition to enhance our connection with the landscape. Sandwich mesh lining allows air to move freely around the boot and keep moisture away from your skin, passing it out through the pores of the leather or through the collar opening so your feet can breathe.Perfect for cold, warm and wet.

Inside there’s a sandwich-mesh lining that helps maintain internal airflow and keep moisture away from the skin. Once you can’t repair or don't need them anymore, send us your old Vivos and we’ll make they sure they’re given a second life, or if they’re really well-loved, we'll store them until we launch our recycling solution. If the barefoot style boot sounds too lightweight, and you prefer something that offers more substantial protection, consider this boot from Ariat.A good footrest is as important to comfort as the chair you sit in, and Secretlab’s Professional Footrest is ideal for home or office use For those who are fed up with huge-heeled hiking boots pumped full of cushioning, these might therefore be a welcome alternative.” Their Wildhide leather is naturally scarred and comes from free-roaming cattle sourced from small scale farmers.
