Subject: Re: Waterproof hiking boots

I love my Ecco Gore-tex hikers. They make a low-top and a high-top, in one or two different styles. They are exceedingly comfortable, and I often wear the low-top hiker as my only pair of travel shoes. One of the styles has a slightly dressier look, and wears well with any clothing.

This is a Danish shoe, but curiously after I shopped around for them while in Copenhagen two weeks ago, I concluded they were less expensive here in the States. Actually, most things in Denmark seemed to be about twice the cost of things here. I'm guessing that their prices include a sizeable tax to cover the generous social programs available to Danish citizens?
