Boot, socks, and power converter question
Could I get some assistance regarding boots and socks to wear for my safari along with where to find a power converter?
I currently wear for hunting the Meindl Perfekt Hunter Insulated (400gr) boots. These are very comfortable, but yet have a "squeaking" problem. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the sqeak? I would really like to take these with my to RSA on my hunt in September. However, I don't want to hamper my chances by having boots that squeak (not to mention possisbly irritating my PH with the noise). :D
These boots are nubuck leather so want to make sure I don't mess them up.
Also, are insulated boots really necessary for the time of year and climate I'll be hunting?
Here's a link to this boot.

The alternative to this boot would be to wear my good ole Justin Roper lace-up work boot. They soles are rubber but have no treads for grip. Downfall to these boots are I can't wear a heavier sock with them. I'd have to wear a basic cotton sock. They don't make a sound, however.
Here's the link to this boot.

Do you recommend heavier cotton socks, or wool blend socks? I've heard that wool is better since they will wick moisture away from your feet unlike cotton and therefore help reduce the chance for painful blisters.
I can wear a wool or even heavy cotton sock in the Meindl's but not in the Justins.
Where I can I find one? Our local Wal-Mart doesn't have any (or online) and can't find them on Best Buy's website. Also, do I need to buy the "H Plug" for plugging into the outlets in RSA?
I am also open to suggestions for a brand of non-insulated hunting boots that would work as well.
Sorry this is turned out to be such a long post. Just wanted to get all the info out there I could.
Thanks in advance.
