More Equipment

In response to Justin's suggestion of cleats... if they're comfortable, go for it. Cleats have the added bonus of being helpful for hiking. The spikes (and it would be better to go with metal spikes here) will easily break the skull if they make proper contact with enough force. Broken skull=broken brain=dead zombie.

Similarly, brass knuckles are also good. However, they fall under the "not legal" category, so I'll have to wait until after the zombie apocalypse to obtain them.

There are also lots of legal weapons that can be safely stashed in the car. For example, the crowbar (Captain Pryey), the tire iron, a rope with a weighted end (good for taking down zombies), my new cultivator, or even a simple broom stick. I always keep some supplies in my car, so I can leave at a moments notice.

Advice of the Day: Be aware of your surroundings, and what can function as a weapon, should the situation arise.

Cleats are a remarkably poor idea. You might as well put on a pair of high-heeled shoes. They may be great for the soccer pitch, but while you are traversing over the rough and unsteady terrain of the zombie apocalypse you are more likely to turn your ankle with them than to get the chance to kick a zombie in the head. Besides, most people lack the ability to kick someone in the head, and even with success you may only end up tearing the loose flesh off their decaying skull.

Best to invest in a pair of sturdy steel toed waterproof hiking boots. The boots will be better for their locomotive value and power: you’ll be better prepared to take an opponent down (and subsequently crush their skull) when you kick them in the leg.
