Is there anything as bad as having on a pair of wet socks? Worse — a pair of wet socks when you can’t change out of them? Cometh the colder months and cometh the rain and snow, and soon we are all faced with the uncomfortable and inevitable dilemma of “How am I going to keep my feet dry?” For some of us, it will mean taking a spare pair of shoes to work. For others of us, it will mean donning a pair of bulky and overbearing hiking boots just to walk to the supermarket, hoping we don’t bump into anyone we know. For yet others of us, it will mean digging out the rubber boots, which, although practical when it’s wet outside, leave our feet sweaty and hot as soon as we’re inside. Compounding the quandary, rubber boots put us in the all too well known is-it-actually-going-to-rain scenario. No one likes to be the goof wearing the rain boots when it hasn’t rained all day. Yeah, we’ve all been there. For the most part, footwear and wet conditions make for a sorry state of affairs. For the most part. Read More

Although light in weight, Merrell’s All Out shoes are anything but lightweights when it comes to performance.

The All Out M-Select GRIP outsole features a circular design that allows each lug to move independently, delivering multi-directional traction over an increased surface area. Read More
The name “Sebago” has been synonymous with the highest-quality boat shoes since the company’s founding in New England in 1946. Present-day Sebago men’s footwear includes a wide range of dress and casual shoes and low boots, but it’s all but impossible to hear the name without thinking of standing on a ship’s deck, the sun glinting off the waves as you hoist the Jolly Roger and squint at the horizon.

Our friends at KEEN are all about the journey. As a matter of fact, their advice to you right now is to “Follow your feet.” It’s more than an invitation to wander; it’s a reminder that getting there is as much a part of any journey as being there. And if you’re anything like me, you may find that a lot of the stories you share and laugh about later take place in the getting to and coming back portions of your journey. In any case, KEEN has the shoes for the wander, the wherever, and the way back. Read More

I’m not a hunter. I know, because I’ve been hunting and it just wasn’t for me. While I did bag my first and only pheasant, it’s rarely the thing I remember most about the experience. What I remember most was miles and miles of cold, wet and aching feet. The problem was that I was wearing the boots I had, not the boots I needed. The hunting boots I should have been wearing come from Irish Setter.

My favorite season is fall. I’ve always preferred my weather a little on the cool and crisp side and, to my eye, the rich, saturated colors of fall beat the warm and bright colors of spring—which I like second best. I guess I like the transition seasons that fill in the space between the real, full-on seasons of summer and winter. Of course, you may have a different opinion, but that’s okay because there’s Patagonia.
