I wear boots year round, even in the peak Southern California summers. I could never hold off on my Vibergs for the short "cooler" months. They beckon me every time I open the closet door! If I'm wearing jeans (which is most of the time), then there is a 90 percent chance I'm wearing a pair of Vibergs or Whites. Those scout boots are badass - I don't know how you can possibly resist and hold out until winter! You're a stronger man than I am!
