Happy Tuesday,

It has been unusually warm in Salt Lake this year for a January. Like, no snow and mid 40's in the valleys. Like, we could have @AEfaninTampa or one of the many TX weasels to visit warm. I have a trip to ATV in Moab planned the first week of March, I hope this weather holds.

Breaking in a new pair today. I once heard there was a man who didn't like chili shell. I was relieved to find out it was not true.

AE sent the notification. I should receive some Landons (chili shell) in a couple of days!

Not really actually. That's about what they look like in person as well. I wish so much of the cool marbling wasn't on the shaft which you'll never see.
They will age beautifully! I'm debating sunfading my pair of strands, but decided wearing them will be much more fun! Still have yet to take them out for their maiden voyage.

So I splurged a bit for Merino Wool AE socks. Purchased around 20 pairs, and selected the ones only with 70% wool. Anyone tried these and how do they compare to other brands?

I never thought I would spend on socks like this. I've always used the Kirkland dress socks lol.

The old OTC ones were rocking. I wish they offered more than black, navy, and charcoal when I bought them. I would have bought many more.

Hey, we got a pair and that sole is the BOMB.....the colder it gets, the grippier the sole. I have no idea how it does it, but F*me it's awesome.

I have a pair, and don't find the soles to be anything special on ice. Better than Dainite, I guess, but I feel more secure on Vibram commandos on icy streets and sidewalks. But I still like the boots, and wear them about once a week in the winter.

I don't know, I find them better than commandos personally.
