This Low Hiking Boot is perfect for the transition from urban to country environment, especially when gaining the high ground is a huge advantage. It's well documented that zombies have less than stellar motor skills, and we're pretty sure that includes climbing.
Well how about you try kicking in a door with 23 zombies behind it using Grade-A modern day miracles strapped to your feet. Look, we suggest banking on putting miles in, and a good running shoe can get you there.
Public transit is suddenly a thing of the past and gas is running out, so fully utilize those natural transportation devices called your feet. Though, last time we checked zombies are functioning more on smell and movement than actual coloration.
If you're rolling into this end-of-the-world showdown like Clint Eastwood in a zombie flick, the legion of walking dead have big problems. Enjoy wading into waves of undead toting steel toes that function equally great for stomping the bad guys as they are for building barricades to protect the good ones.
Super-high protection against bites and easy-pull harnesses for quick slip-on is well and good, but who cares when you're riding a wild stallion with a straw of hay hanging from your mouth. Whether you go big or play it safe, we at Shoebox don't think you should underestimate the power of a good shoe.
This is in part due to the runaway success of The Walking Dead and World War Z. If you’d like specific books about zombies to be added, feel free to drop me an email.
However, Patient Zero as a book had me glued from start to finish, thanks to a strong cast of characters and well-written action scenes. I think fans of military-themed zombie apocalypse books will fully enjoy author Jonathan Mayberry’s release.
The plot centers on the legendary Joe Ledger, a hardened Baltimore detective, who joins a secret response team to stop terrorists. The mission: prevent the baddies from infecting people with a terrible bio-weapon that, essentially, turns them into zombies.
As an anthropologist, I really appreciate author Sophie Little field’s attention to underlying cultural themes, explored amid the bleak setting of a zombie apocalypse. Class then embarks on a dangerous search for her daughter, seeking help in a world filled with flesh-hungry Beaters (i.e. zombies).
Interestingly, I first met author Rhiannon Crater online many years ago on an obscure forum for horror fans. Fast-forward a decade later and Rhiannon is now an accomplished author being published by Tor Books.
And, yes, there are sections in the book where author Mira Grant veers too deep into the technical aspects of online journalism. The Newsflash series offers plenty of character and emotional depth, wrapped up by a largely satisfying ending.
From Extinction Horizon and beyond, author Nicholas Smith feeds you an exquisite serving of frenzied zombie action. This military story follows Master Sergeant Reed Beckham who, as leader of his Delta Force Team, has lived through his fair share of nightmarish missions.
However, his worst hell begins when his team is sent in to investigate a super-secret research facility that’s gone dark. An epic catastrophe soon unfolds when they discover that infected zombies have started to spread across cities, threatening human extinction.
While coming across as a back-to-basics thriller, you’ll be surprised to find a host of intriguing characters woven into an addictive narrative fabric. The plot brims with solid dialogue, coupled with attention to military & scientific detail.
The most compelling quality of this series is its intricate balance of fast-paced action with deep characterizations. You’ll find yourself fully immersed in this addictive zombie plot, thanks to steady narrative groundwork laid out by each book.
At the start, you aren’t fully informed of what Melanie’s ‘gifts’ really are, leaving you guessing. Older than most books on this list, The Rising treks a father’s journey through a zombie apocalypse in an effort to rescue his son.
The Rising is credited for partially helping to jump-start the new wave of zombie survival fiction. The plot centers on a group of students who find themselves trapped in school, with a zombie horde pounding to get in.
However, I think the strong plot and surprisingly charming characters will definitely find an audience with adults alike. However, as far as zombie novels go, The Briefing seems to be a hugely overlooked gem for the genre (based on the many five-star reviews I’ve read).
I'm just wondering if the suede would hold up to the tramping over lawns bit of my work though. What about Chelsea boots ? I wear actual Jodhpur boots to work with a dress and pantyhose but the ultimate for comfort are Flintstones.
