Dan, I read a bit on your website. I wish you the best in your endeavors, it's truly amazing. I wish I had the same guts to try and pull it off. I'm sure my wife and kids would be none to happy about me spending our life savings trying to do the same, although I'd love to.
As far as shoe recommendations go, I'm a diehard XPS-1 guy. I have a few pairs from other brands, but those will go away soon. I've only been an FJ guy for a little over a year, so as the others get rotated out, I'll rotate more FJs in.
