Due to logistics and distance we are only able to photograph two pairs in the studio as Jenny and Becca are not at Hero Headquarters today. The Five Buckle Over-Shoes, worn by designer and photographer Samuel Copeland, available at most farm and ranch supply stores, can be purchased for $35-$75. No insulation but you can spectate belgians racing for victory while you wear your post race party-kicks underneath their waterproofed seams. When you return to downtown Louisville one can effortlessly abandon them revealing your special edition JEREMY SCOTT ADIDAS at the nearest FOAM PARTY. Luke Batten chose the Årsta Vinter.

Writer Jenny Haare looked to be wearing classic LL Bean Snow boots (or Sorels) that kept her toes warm and had her humming along to T-Pain’s hit LL-BEAN’S-Boots-With-The-Fur. Becca dusted off some Louis Vuitton winter kicks that might have been the best looking boots at Bandman Park. Warm, Waterproof, the white linen uppers defied the muddy course and are probably the reason a glancing, Niels Albert finished a disappointing 8th place.
