Invest in a pair of high quality running shoes to have your best foot forward in the rise of the undead. Running is an essential part of staying alive during the apocalypse and it’s not going to end over night. Also, leather combat boots may look badass but they may hinder your speed capacity so a nice pair of Nikes would be best.
Another thing to keep in mind would be staying fit. If you run like the fat kid in third grade, you’re going to be a zombies first choice.
Set up boobie traps all around the perimeter of your camp to alert you of any infiltrating undead. Trip wires and rattling cans sound good. That way you can strike them down before they munch your brains. Good luck.
