    I am a BOOTS guy but with summer temps in the 90s, I switch to low cut black Nike Airs. I even wear the sissy ankle socks. Who else goes "minimalist" during summer?

    I would love to. Unfortunately, this is the time of year that everyone starts wandering round in the woods and on the "trails", so the ankle support is essential. Uncomfortable, hot, stinky and yucky, but essential.

    I used to swear by those nike shoes, but really, they suck. They don't last longer than 2-3 months for me before they start to fall apart. I stick with my converse slip-ons, sadly they're discontinued.

    When I work at the water park for extra cash I'm wearing my sandals.
