Joel Miller, Everybody Gets Unexpected in HBO’s blockbuster adaptation the last of us, The past few Sundays have taught us all a thing or two about surviving the apocalypse. For one, you need to have a rough-and-tough exterior (complete with a proper jacket). You have to be willing to make a few kills (for the right reasons). And, apparently, you need a damn reliable pair of boots.
Joel’s boots, luckily, are available for even those is not In a fungus-ridden, zombie-infested area (it seems he’s gone shopping before Cordyceps was a thing, maybe?) They’re 10-inch, waterproof elk tracker leather boots by Irish Setter, and frankly, they’re cute. they are. The perfect survival boot.
Not only do they pair well with Joel Miller’s Apocalypse Jacket, they’re impervious to the elements, featuring a durable sole, steel and—get this—Odor control technology Kills bacteria. A zombie apocalypse in a world where the fungus spreads is great, isn’t it? Good thinking, Joel.
These boots are for the bruised, jaded, partially deaf survivor of an apocalypse in an alternate 2023 where absolute totalitarianism reigns and humanity’s survival seems to depend solely on a teenage girl, who, by the way, is also eligible for a male investment. This 2023 version. You know, the hard-wearing boots that are meant to live a full life – basically avoiding the undead.
And, yes, these boots are overbuilt for everyday life, but they’re adaptable to your environment. It’s tough and waterproof, with calf support and a shock-absorbing midsole made of cork, so you’re on even the most rugged terrain (ie, once-overgrown urban ruins). Walk comfortably. Let’s not even get into the rugged cold, weathered leather oh-so-handsome vintage jacket with the same aesthetic. Joel Miller nailed it. If only there was time or the schedule to appreciate it.
