We have discovered through Tolkien's writings and original drawings that Hobbits wore boots. In the East Farthing Hobbits were descendants of the Stoors and during muddy and rainy days wore dwarven boots. And also the East Farthing Hobbits grew beards.

So I have put on my dwarven boots for a little trek today out into the Shire. We have had rainy weather the past days and the snow is beginning to melt so it made a fine setting to test out Hobbit boots!
