The ultimate slip-'em-on-at-your-tailgate-while-cracking-a-beer-at-the-end-of-a-great-day-skiing shoes.

In junior high school I had a pair of low-top, do-everything shoes made by Merrell. I hiked in them, flirted with girls in them, and presented my science-fair project in them. I was even wearing them when I drank my first alcoholic beverages—three Bud pounders in a row. Then Merrell stopped making these awesome kicks. Feeling betrayed, I spent the intervening years in various inferior shoes. I couldn’t find a replacement as well rounded as those Merrells—until last October, when I got a pair of Patagonia Boaris shoes. Like my old favorites, they do everything well. I wear them hiking and to the gym. I wear them to work and I slip into them at the tailgate of my car in the ski-area parking lot after skiing. In the picture above, I’m wearing them on the deck of the M/V Clipper Adventurer, crossing the Drake Passage from Tierra del Fuego to Antarctica for a couple weeks of ski touring. Aside from my ski boots, they were the only footwear I brought on the trip. I love them. [$120; patagonia.com]  —Sam Bass, Skiing senior editor

For those who are footwear

For those who are footwear freaks (I am one too!), so I can quite understand the frustration when his favorite brand went off market!! If you have the ones you are happy in them you refuse to take them off!! (I mean that literally - no formal wear or informal wear), you wouldn't be caught dead without them!! The Pantagonia Boaris seems to be a good choice from what I see and I think it's really worth investing in one of those!!
