Happy 100th to our National Parks
Comfortable & Durable Shoes For The Traveling Man
This year the National Park Service celebrates its 100th year. Like the Strandmok at Yellowstone (above), Allen Edmonds shoes have visited their share. From Mammoth Cave to Mount Rainier and Grand Canyon to Glacier National, there has never been a better time to get out and enjoy all the natural beauty and wonder our country has to offer. To take full advantage of every hiking trail and scenic overlook you'll want to have the right shoes. Here is our list of the top shoes for a great day in the park.
Recommended Shoes for a day in the park
Great looks and great grip combine for a shoe that is right at home in the hinterland. Featuring a studded Dainite rubber sole to protect you from the elements and a Poron insole for extra cushioning, this shoe's exquisite perfing and pinking give it a natural beauty to complement your park experience.
City street or park trail, don't let the wingtip or the pinking and perfing fool you, this is a true boot in every sense of the word. Features include four exposed eyelets and three speed hooks, a split-reverse welt and Vibram rubber lug sole that make it ready to take on the elements found in our great parks.
Talk about a shoe that is at home in the park, the Cascade features a casual nubuck-like leather upper with lightweight lug sole and a Poron insole for comfort no matter how far the trail leads, and its water-resistant properties mean it's ready for tough conditions too.
If you plan on visiting the park by car, the Interstate 90's clean lines, contrast stitching and Dario rubber sole make it the perfect companion. And it's comfortable and durable enough should you decide to step out of your vehicle for a closer look.
This loafer had to make the list, and not just because it shares its name with one of our most impressive national parks. It's included because of its solid good looks, the durability of the lightweight lug sole and the all-day comfort that comes from its Poron insole.
