Get Out! Outside that is in Hiking Shoes and Boots
National Get Outdoors Day is June 14. The day is set aside to “encourage healthy, active outdoor fun.” We’re big believers in the value of spending time outside whether you take to the city streets or head to the hills.
Walking shoes: The Keen Whisper ($89.95) looks like a sandal but is stable like a closed shoe. The signature toe protects against bumps and bruises. The bungee lace system completely does away with the possibility of untied laces. A metatomical footbed with Microban provides comfort all day while the Aegis microbe treatment fends off odors and stains. Slender straps give this shoe a more feminine look.
Hiking boots: Show your style in the great outdoors with the beautiful blue color of the Nubuck uppers on the Ahnu Montara Boot ($159.95). A rubber toe protector helps keep you safe during hikes while the Vibram rubber outsole creates traction on a wide variety of surfaces. An eVent bootie keeps feet warm while keeping water out.
Walking shoes: Take on any terrain when you’re wearing Chaco’s Outcross Lace in Gunmetal for men ($119.95). Mesh and synthetic leather uppers are durable and breathable. Adjust the fit with a single pull of the lace bungee system. Your feet will be in proper alignment thanks to the supportive LUVSEAT platform. In fact, the footbed is AMPA certified for innovative support in helping to maintain the foot’s natural anatomy. Uneven terrain is no problem because of the built-in TPU shank. And the Vibram TC-1 outsole with 3mm lugs provides plenty of traction on wet or dry surfaces.
Hiking boots: The Keen Men’s Bryce MID WP ($134.95) manages to be sturdy, tough and yet light weight. Made from waterproof Nubuck leather on the uppers, the built-in rubber toe bumper protects your feet. The removable footbed and dual density EVA footbed molds to the shape of your foot for a custom fit. Feel confident taking on uneven surfaces with the TPU stability shank.
