Remember the days when you’d walk from the subway to the office in your waterproof boots, carrying your dress shoes in a separate bag? Wait, what? You still do that? If so, it’s time. Time to start and finish the day with a pair of waterproof wingtips, cap toes or slip ons that not only keep your feet dry, but also come in soft materials with slip resistant soles.

Our local conservation lands are all too quickly turning from snowshoe and ski paths to mud-filled hiking trails. But not mud, nor rain, nor lack of proper footwear will stop us, and they shouldn’t stop you, from exploring the great outdoors this spring. Our waterproof men’s boots boast increased stability, climate control and lightweight construction, so you can follow, or blaze, your favorite trail.
