"To go out on January day and run around on the beach under a golden sun makes a very great change in your outlook on the universe."
- Robert Silverberg

Stillsuit Desert Boots  
  Special boots that offered parasitic power harvesting.  

This entry provides some additional details for the original stillsuit from Herbert's earlier novel, Dune.

Paul sat on the edge of his bed and began stripping off his desert boots. They smelled rancid from the lubricant which eased the action of the heel-powered pumps that drove his stillsuit.
From Dune Messiah, by Frank Herbert.
