walk this way.....

I may have found the perfect shoe for my trip later this summer.... I came across this Danner boot shoe from an Instagram ad. I've been considering for a while now how to travel with the right shoes. I have a lot of shoes, but mainly casual sneakers or work shoes, not really hiking or leather walking shoes. I planned on bringing a pair of converse to walk around in, but what with the high chance of rain in England, I know I'll need something more. These shoes are leather and waterproof, vibram sole, and with a basic black color that I can wear with jeans or the stone khaki jean pants that I plan to bring. I've been looking for a shoe just under $100 but this one was marked down on a sale and I figured why not give it a try.
 They are described as: "The combination of the Vibram SPE midsole and Fuga outsole gives unparalleled grip on wet and dry surfaces while providing superior cushioning without the weight. Designed to withstand the climate and terrain of the Pacific Northwest, we utilized a smooth full-grain leather upper and Danner Dry waterproof protection. The Mountain 600 defines a new category in hiking boots we call Performance Heritage - combining our classic styling with lightweight innovation. The second lace option included with this boot is black."  For How It Fits, they say "Designed for versatility, the DPDX has a low profile for everyday wear. Whether on the trail or urban exploring, this last was built to offer enough room for comfort while maintaining a sleek profile. Ortholite footbed included. Please note the Mountain 600 fits slightly large and we recommend sizing down a half size for best fit."
I guess I'll have to wait and see what exactly they mean by "lightweight innovation."  I hope they are rather lightweight if I am to be walking around in them all day. It says 32 oz per shoe? and I like that part about "urban exploring" ha! cheers for any thoughts shared.
