I like Keen shoes. They are the most comfortable brand I have ever owned.

New Balance makes shoes in your size. They make shoes in everybody's size. Their outlet store in the old school in Skowhegan has very good sales on discontinued styles.

This is a little off topic, but back to boots: those old surplus Micky Mouse boots are great for ice fishing or night hunting for coyotes. They are not great for hiking. I have never owned a realy good winter boot. I am tempted to buy a pair of Muck Boots.

An Update

I bought a pair of Muck boots at Reny's and finally got a chance to try them out after Tuesday's snowfall. My feet stayed dry and warm. Thanks to all for their advice.

You tap maple as well to make sryup?

Check out the Kittery Trading Post in Kittery. They have a website of the same name.

Something like these LL Bean duck boot knockoffs, which you can sometimes find at Walmart: http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2...uck-boot-4999/

I got a pair of these for $7 at a yard sale 15 years ago. They're still going strong. They keep your feet dry in slush.
