With great weather comes great opportunities to get outside and have a good time. You need to have shoes that will fit your needs, so check out the “outdoor” shoes for men and women at Footwear etc.! They are casual, rugged, and appropriate for a variety of outdoor activities. Here are a few examples:
A phenomenal all-around hiking/outdoor activities shoe is the New Balance Multi-Sport Outdoor Shoe. This waterproof shoe is available in both men’s and women’s sizes, and is a fantastic, all-around shoe for the great outdoors. It’s lightweight and supportive, yet has a has a lugged outsole that’s rugged enough for a day on the trail. The Gore-Tex lining makes the shoe waterproof and breathable so that your feet can stay comfortable all day long. This might just be the perfect shoe for the Great Outdoors!
Shoes using Barefoot technology include the Merrell Barefoot series, or the Vibram Fivefingers products. These shoes protect your feet against rocks and rough terrain, but still allow you to feel the ground beneath your feet – almost as you would if you were barefoot. The biggest difference between these brands is that the Vibram Fivefingers keeps your toes separated, whereas the Merrell does not. Both have Vibram outsoles and are very breathable so that your feet can stay cool and comfortable.
The ultimate in outdoor shoes has to be from Merrell. There are a bunch of models suitable for all sorts of outdoor activities; from hiking, to lounging. One of the most popular hiking boots is the Merrell Moab. Available for both men and women, this boot provides all the support and durability you could ever need on the trail. The anatomical footbed provides support, the air cushion in the heel absorbs shock, the Gore-Tex lining helps keep your feet dry, and the Vibram outsole contains outstanding durability and traction. You’ll love taking this out for your weekend hikes. I also really like the Merrell Mix Master Glide. It’s a great shoe featuring barefoot technology, and has the rugged Vibram outsole that will protect your feet from rocks, uneven pavement, etc.
Don’t stay shut indoors during the beautiful weather, get outside and try out some of the outstanding shoes Footwear etc. carries for those outdoor adventures. Your shoes don’t have to slow you down!
