This shoe really changes the way that running and all other active pursuits are accomplished. It is an experience, to say the least, and an amazing one at that. The only pro…

These sandals fit well, don't slip around on your feet and get really good traction. I've made them my everyday sandal and have noticed that my feet have always been comfortab…

These flip-flops are pretty nice, and the soles are just what I was hoping for. The photo is pretty accurate, that orange on the sole is a little brighter, but looks great. I'…

Bought these for my husband who hates sandals. Had to find something he'd wear on the boat and around the beach other than his athletic shoes and socks. He loves these shoes…

I had such high hopes for these sandals! I bought a pair as my portage shoes for the BWCA, and while on the first few I was really pleased. It had all the benefits that a sa…

Used these when snowboarding in -18 degree weather. My face was numb but I could still feel my feet. The best part is they kept my feet from sweating. I also love these with…

Love this sock for tough trails in the Northern Cascades. Great padding on the soles that make a big difference on long hauls with a heavy pack. I wear them with and without l…

Men's Shoes + Boots
Somebody told me I was supposed to write some stuff about men's shoes, since I'm the person around here who takes footwear the most seriously. See, secretly, I design shoes and boots in my spare time. I'm waiting for the right time to unleash my shoes for the world to see. The entire landscape of men's footwear will change. The entire shoe-scape, I guess. It's a pretty big deal.
A lot of stuff changed in the shoe world when Vibram FiveFingers came out. After that, you had all these people who were super into showing off their toes to everyone. They were also into barefoot running, and keeping their gams in shape, but it was mostly the toe thing. We've been selling FiveFingers, including the KSO, Sprint, and Classic, for a while now, and I can tell you people are totally into them. Plus, everybody's calves look awesome.
Another pretty big deal in footwear are men's insulated boots. Here in Detroit we call them men's winter boots, but I guess depending on where you are, you might need insulated boots and it won't necessarily be winter. Like if you're on a mountain or on the moon. I hear it's cold on the moon this time of year. Anyway, check out men's insulated winter boots from sweet brands like Sorel and Asolo. If you're on a mountain, you should probably be wearing mountaineering boots, anyway, not Sorel Caribous, although Caribous are sweet. If you're on a mountain, you're probably pretty hardcore, if you're hardcore, you're probably looking for La Sportiva Mountaineering Boots or Scarpa Mountaineering Boots.
Another big deal for people who are cool is hiking boots. Men who are cool prefer men's hiking boots. That's just the way the world works. Anyway, check out all the different types of boots there are around here. Sometimes it amazes even me. For starters, there's regular hiking boots, or light hiking boots. You'll have to choose the boots depending on the length of your hike, weight of your pack, and the terrain you're going over. Light hikers are lighter weight for a fast trek over relatively easy terrain, while regular hiking boots offer more support and stability for long treks with a heavy pack. There are men's hiking shoes, too, which are like light hiking boots, only shoes. Think of them as bridging the gap between light hiking boots and trail running shoes.
It's not all boots and fingershoes here, though. Check out men's rock climbing shoes, men's skate shoes, men's sandals, and even men's casual shoes. It's like a smorgasbord of shoes. Shoegasbord. We've even got men's vegan footwear for people who really like animals, or really dislike plants. Moosejaw also has some pretty performance socks for your performance feet. Check out socks from the likes of Smartwool, Wigwam, and Icebreaker.
