KEEN Utility Women's Salem Mid Steel Toe Work Boot (Shitake)
Whether you need serious footwear for work or just for weekend projects, KEEN’s Utility Salem Mid Steel-Toe Boots are a must for all handy women.
KEEN made this quality work boot sturdy with water-resistant leather and rubber soles for a no-slip grip that’s guaranteed to get you up any slope, no matter how treacherous.
Though this little beast will add some weight to your step, you can walk easier knowing that its steel toe will protect your digits from every angle.
Quality work boots are expensive, but these medium-duty beauties are moderately-priced between $130-$150, depending on the store or distributor.
Modeled after tabi, a Japenese split-toe style sock, Jika-Tabi means "tabi that contact the ground."
Jika-tabis are ninja shoes, and wearing them makes you feel stealth and cool.
The split-toe takes a bit of getting used to at first but once you do, the sensation of the soles gripping the ground feels good on the bottoms of your feet.
Tabi ninja shoes are comfortable, stylish, and guaranteed to ignite conversation. It's recommended that they be worn with tabi socks for comfort and to decrease odor issues.
If you have kids or if you're lucky enough to be able to fit into kid's sizes, check out the Powder-Hound II snow boot from The North Face.
They're durable, and if you have on proper socks, they will keep your toes warm even if you spend hours romping through the snow.
The Velcro strap and zip ties at the top are super simple to use. They're easy to put on and take off, which is a blessing when it comes to mobility in winter wear.
They're also great even when it isn't snowing. The boots aren't too bulky, compared to other snow boots, which makes wearing them on cold and rainy days a bonus option.
They're reasonably priced for North Face, coming in at around $65, which makes them an expensive buy for feet that are still growing. If you are wanting to buy them for a kid, just buy one or two sizes up so they'll last more than one winter season, and you're sure to get your money's worth.
If you don't have a pair of good snow boots, you need some. If you've never considered owning a pair, this winter is proof alone that a good pair of snow boots are critical for your foot's protection from the snow. Get some today, and the next time it snows, you'll be wondering how you survived before.
A good pair of Wellies is a lifesaver on poor-weather days. They can keep your socks and pant legs dry and they look good, ta-boot.
Hunter Wellies are of excellent quality, come in a variety of colors to suit your personality, and are reasonably priced as far as quality-made Wellies are concerned.
We recommend on cold days wearing Wellies with a pair of Welly socks to keep the feet warm inside the rubber boot. Welly socks also add an additional touch of personality.
Crocs Melbourne Unisex Flip-Flop
Getting ready for the warmer months means hitting the gym, watching the diet, and getting some sun on the skin, but as you prepare for the upcoming summer don't forget about your feet.
Flip-flops are a must-have for any wardrobe due to their ease, comfort, and built-in ventilation system, and Crocs is an excellent choice for your go-to flip-flop.
Whatever you think about the physical features of original Crocs shoes is irrelevant. When it comes to flip-flops, Crocs has got it down. How can they not? Just look at their shoes.
Crocs offers a wide range of flip-flops for a wide range of budgets, and they can be bought online or in stores. The newer models are more expensive, averaging about $35-$40, but older models can be found online for around $15.
Whether you go with the Athens, Flip, Scorpion, Lukela, Kadee, or Seaweed III, Crocs flip-flops are of good quality and are extremely comfortable. They form to your foot and only get better with use, which is awesome because if it's one pair of shoes that gets the most use in the summer, it's flip-flops.
If you're looking for a shoe that makes walking long distances over a variety of terrain feel like a walk in the park then look no further than Keen.
Keens are well-made, wear smoothly, and wash if they get too dirty.
Get prepared to be amazed by how long these things will last. They might not look brand new after awhile, especially if you wear your shoes hard, but they do hold their own in the aging process no matter how tough you are on your feet.
Keens fit nicely. They hug the foot snugly, but not enough to cause blisters. The sandals also breath well, which is nice on cutting down foot odor.
The rubber of the toe and sole does feel a bit bulky at first, but the design does an excellent job of protecting your feet. Plus, it doesn't take that long to get used to, and after awhile, you'll feel grateful for the buffer between your bare foot and some of the terrain you walk on.
No matter how much you walk in Keens, they grow more comfortable with each step. You can literally traverse islands, search up and down city streets, go from grass to gravel to cobblestone to wood to marble and never once does your arch, heal, or shin ache.
There are websites and people out there dedicated to bashing Keens and the people who wear them. Why? Because a lot of people wear Keens? Why do a lot of people wear Keens? Because Keens are comfortable. Ignore the haters. There's nothing wrong with finding a comfortable shoe and wearing it.
There Is A Catch
Although Keens are readily available online and in retail stores, the drawback is the price tag. You'll pay anywhere from $80 - $100 plus, depending on the style of Keen.
They're Worth It
Keens have the best of both worlds. They've got the utility of a closed-toe shoe while offering the convenience, comfort, and style of a sandal. They're durable and feel amazing on your feet. They come in a variety of colors and styles, and you can wash them if they get too dirty. We wouldn't say Keens are the best shoes on the planet, but as far as utility and comfort, they're definitely at the top.
J Shoe Women's Brogues
No matter the brand, style, or color, no foot is complete without a good pair of gangster shoes. Whether you call them Brogues, Charlies, or shoes with Spats, gangster shoes are just plain cool.
Gangster shoes can be the perfect compliment to that bold outfit you only wear every once in awhile, or they can be the dazzle that turns plain casual wear into something more unique.
Gangster-style shoes are available for both men and women and come in primarily two "looks," modern and classic. Men's styles typically take on the classic look, whereas the modern look is more readily available for women.
Though not at Shoe Fly, some women prefer little sticks propping up their feet. For these women the gangster shoe is perfect. A lot of brands only offer the women's style with heels and added accessories.
For women looking for a gangster shoe sans the heel, the classic look is harder to find. Brands like J Shoe offer both classic and modern gangster shoes for women, but as with all elusive things, you're going to have pay more to get it.
Overall, gangster shoes are an offer you can't refuse. Regardless if it's modern or classic, heels or no heels, cheap or you have to sell the farm, go out and buy a pair. They'll feel like part of the family in no time, capice?
Professionals wear them. Athletes wear them. Hipsters wear them. Children wear them. Grandparents wore them. It's practically a required dress code for college students. Originally considered the essential sports shoe, today Converse has infiltrated closets of both athletes and slackers alike to become what a lot of people consider the essential everyday shoe.
Cons come in a variety of colors and cool designs, and you can get them in low-top or high-top. What's interesting about Cons is that although the design hasn't changed too radically since the original All-Star basketball shoe was launched in 1917, Cons never seem to go out of style.
When compared with brands like Nike, Cons aren't that expensive. You can find a pair from $35-$50, depending on the store.
You know it's going to be a good time anytime you're sporting some Chuck Taylor's, but if you want to work out and seriously play sports, Cons aren't good shoes for that anymore. They've evolved into an everyday shoe that sure beats the heck out of wingtips and crushing heels on a casual Friday.
Remember the days when you thought a pair of shoes could make you jump higher and run faster? Well, with Wushu shoes from Warrior, you just might be able to.
Although they have a cheerleader look to them, Warrior Wushu shoes are anything but dainty. They're durable, lightweight, and comfortable whether you're walking around the mall or practicing martial arts.
The Wushu shoe from Warrior makes anyone who wears them feel like they can kick some major booty. If you want proof, watch the video. If you wear a pair of Wushu shoes, you just might be able to do the same thing.
Ostrich Skin Cowboy Boots
The best thing about cowboy boots are they're versatile. Dress 'em up, dress 'em down, wear 'em every day or just once in a while, cowboy boots are a must-have staple for any closet.
Cowboy boots are also versatile on the wallet. You can get a decent-looking pair for relatively low cost, or you can spend a little more and get a quality-made boot that will last for years.
The key to finding the right boot is deciding when you'll want to wear your boots.
If you want to wear cowboy boots for work and manual labor or if you simply want to own a pair just because, you'll probably want to stick with leather. Real leather boots are reasonably-priced and come in a variety of colors and styles.
If you're looking for something that will last longer than real leather and that will add more style to your outfit, try cowboy boots made with "exotic" hides.
Ostrich, crocodile, and snakeskin cowboy boots are more expensive, but definitely last longer, are softer, and look better than leather.
If you don't already own a pair, you gotta get some cowboy boots. You might not wear them every day but when you do, you'll be walking with a more confident swagger - guaranteed.
