Fila Men’s Simulite Running Sneaker

Fila Men’s Simulite Lightweight Running Sneaker

Fila recently celebrated its 100 year anniversary as a company. The Fila brothers initially opened in 1911 in Biella a small town in northern Italy. Much of the creations the brothers has coined were in combining “luxury, art and utility,” having drawn inspiration from the landscape to create a product like none other. By 1923 the brothers where officially on the books in a limited partnership as Maglifico Biellese spending its ensuing years expanding to 1942 when the company merged with the Fratelli Fila company and another 30 years later the company had sales well over one billion Lire and more than 250 people on their staff.
Throughout the years Fila had drawn its inspiration from landscapes and coming up with a model they would live by which would be “sport is life expressed through motion, and that sportswear must complement, not overpower the athlete.” Seemingly Fila has kept true to its roots in consistently instilling these as core values for their vision, remaining true to their company creating textiles based on the “austerity of the Alps, the fluidity of the hills and the boldness of the Mediterranean coast.”

UGG Women’s Classic Autumn Sparkles Boot

UGG is beyond just a brand, it’s created an empire of followers due to its roots in Southern California. By 1978 Brian Smith found himself in SoCal with high hopes and dreams of the sheepskin experience. While SoCal has always been now as a place of relaxed and comfortable style, this is what Brian wanted.

By the 80’s UGG became the symbol of a relaxed, casual lifestyle, now finding his boots in surf shops up and down the Californian coast. They were a staple from the city to the beaches, and small towns alike they became the normal were girls wore their boyfriend’s pair like a letterman jacket. By winter UGG had become beyond a typical Californian Shoe, and it was embraces in ski lodges, and shops all over the Rockies. As Brian took his love into the 90’s, the fashion world took on to a major cultural shift in embracing such a casual style. Fast forward another 2 decades and UGG has revolutionized how we see sheepskin, from boots, to slippers, clogs and sandals! A new premium experience was born.

Ecco Men’s Biom Walk 1.3 Review

Danish shoemaker Karl Toosbuy in Bredebro, Denmark founded Ecco in 1963. One of the major components to being Ecco, is that it is the only major shoe company in the world to own and manage every step of the production process, this includes-from the tannery to the consumer. Toosbuy had brought about a new thought to footwear, being tired of having his feet mold to his shoes, he charged that the foot should lead the shoe.

By 1978 the company had made a huge breakthrough with widespread recognition of its comfort footwear. Moving through the 80’s the company expanded operations internationally, and early on by 1982 sales reaching over 1 million pairs annually. By 1990 additions to the Ecco collection included Kids, Golf and Performance shoes, much can still be found today.

The Men’s Ecco Biom Walk 1.3 is one of those shoes that have pulled through to showcase an elite walking shoe. The Yak leather uppers offer superb strength with excellent breathability and a nice snug fit. The inner provides an anatomically shaped last for an excellent fit with added comfort. The most noticeable part of the shoe is the midsole, which has a close-to-the-ground biomechanical midsole construction is also a direct-injected polyurethane midsole. This sneaker provides for a more natural walking motion for the fitness to casual walker. Lastly, the multipurpose rubber outsole with rubber placed in strategic areas of high wear is perfect for grip and traction without losing flexibility in the forefoot.

Drew from Tennessee, “This shoe is absolutely amazing. I have had problems with heel and arch pain in both of my feet for a while now with other shoes, that even started to hurt my back eventually, and I did a good amount of searching for a shoe that could eliminate most of the pain and fatigue I was feeling while at work. These are the best shoes I’ve come across for walking on concrete floors. I’m sure the Biom has done a great deal they’ve helped me tremendously.”

Dick, Illinois, “I bought these shoes for a European walking trip. They are perfect. Light weight, comfortable, great support, and attractive.”

Tom, Ohio “I use this as an everyday shoe, and primarily for walking. I have had many “pricey” walking shoes, and these are by far the best. The Biom 1.3 are extremely comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time. I have problems taking them off because they are so enjoyable to wear!! I have had some tendonitis and other minor foot ailments that are GONE since wearing this shoe. They are somewhat higher in price, but well worth the money…..”

Cobbler or No Cobbler?

Many times do I find myself describing to customers what a cobbler is, and what they do. While most of us will go out and just buy new shoes, have you ever loved a pair so much that you just couldn’t let go of?

Before I go on I will indicate several things a cobbler can do. A cobbler is a skilled artist who can modify or enhance footwear. For example, ever need a new sole, or your stiletto broke off from the heel, or say you’d like a strap for a more secure fit? Well, they are the person that can help fix all of your needs, regarding shoes.

Why, I love a cobbler: a few years ago while walking to my car on the way home a stiletto broke off from my favorite heel. I wore it day and night, with jeans or dress slacks, they were a small leather ankle boot with a 5 inch heel and ruching on the front with a quite pointed toe. While I know that if you wear a pair of footwear regularly for 6 months, they are likely to be done for, I had a solid 2 years in them before the stiletto broke. I was devastated, no one had a pointed shoe/bootie like this and I wore them everywhere. I took them to a cobbler, and surprisingly enough stated it was an easy fix to re-attach the heel, it cost me about 1/10 of what the shoe originally cost, and he replaced the sole so that I will have continued days of traction and durability in my shoe!

Fixing something that’s broken isn’t always what makes them the best. I tell all women that we sell to, to replace the heel tip on all heels to be rubber for a confident stride. Its simple, cheap, and you’ll be glad one of us told you to do that especially when you walk on your linoleum from it raining outside.

Do you have any great cobbler stories? Or any fun stories of shoe mishaps? Share on our Facebook page!

Merrell Men’s Road Glove Barefoot Sneaker

Merrell has changed the way people perform in the outdoors by creating innovative products for a wide variety of experiences. Since 1981 Merrell has been spreading the word by creating more than just boots, but gear for all sorts of activities and places, from urban street to the rural mountainside, and everywhere in between.

Since 1981 Randy Merrell had been innovating the boot market, creating “the most comfortable and functional boots in North America,“ according to Backpacker Magazine at the time. But since them he has been changing the market such as bringing a women’s last in 1983, and by 1989 they had crossed the pond to a larger market. Merrell has no concrete plans other than to consistently stay on their game by creating new products and technologies to stay active.

One of the leading shoes taking to the market is the Merrell Road Glove, taking the world by storm in the age were minimalism is a lifestyle. This road glove is naturally designed for a runner, keeping you connected to the terrain. The upper is a synthetic and breathable air mesh upper featuring barefoot strobel construction for flexibility and comfort.

Brian, “ Was not sure how these would feel but I wanted to treat myself and get the best. I have been running in Nikes for years and was not sure if the lack of padding would cause me some issues. In the first couple of miles I notices my feet felt more relaxed and I quickly adjusted to the toe and not heal landing. I have had the shoes for a few weeks and run every other day. So far I really like these shoes and feel it was a good purchase.”

Kyle, “ These shoes have totally changed the way I run…On the first try. Love it! I have been running cross country and distance running my whole life (I’m 37) and these shoes are the best shoes to date. I immediately started running more upright, no more heel running, and my time was faster too. No back ache either when I was done…Amazing Merrell…You have a customer for life!

Fran, “ After my last marathon I wanted to see what all of the hubbub was about with barefoot running. I didn’t like the idea of my toes being separates, so when I found the Merrells I was excited. I found a local shop to try some on and found the right fit and shoe which was the Merrell Road Glove. So far they have been great. It has definitely been an adjustment, but I heeded all of the advice and have started slowly. That has resulted in a great experience. It feels very natural running with the Merrells now, plus it has forced me to adjust my stride and posture (for the better). The shoes feel great, it’s like I’m not even wearing shoes…except that my feet are protected from the road.”
