Colorado has that same "Western" feel for formal footwear, so nice to have a nice pair of black boots that I just need to polish up to wear when I need something nice.
I've noticed that I tend to walk more on the "balls" of my feet even in shoes. But in light boots, I walk more on the heel, which took some getting used to as it's somewhat of an unnatural gait for me.
Since just this year I've taken up light running, I will have to wait and see how I wear out my present pair.
Beware, poor communication skills. No offense intended. If offended, it just means that I failed my writing skill check.
