After more ideation, this is the final design I chose, featuring the sole of my right boot with my initials and a smoothbore nozzle on the bottom. This sole is also stepping through a rock texture, giving it some more context. This was later changed to the vacuum former metal grid. This is much more appropriate for me as I have never hiked in these boots and they have only stepped on concrete. The sole of my right boot is just like another type of fingerprint to me as it is cut up with pieces missing that creates a personal timeline of the adventures I have had with it. The nozzle on the bottom represents another huge part of my home town, where I am a firefighter in. This design achieves the personal touch I was looking for as it is my literal and figurative footprint.
