Comfortable & Durable Shoes For The Traveling Man

Men's shoes for a day at the park

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.

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.

Long Branch

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.

Shop Higgins Mill Boot

Higgins Mill

A rugged style that harks back to the early logging years in Maine, the Higgins Mill is made with Horween Chromexcel leather and a Dainite all-weather sole to offer exceptional durability. The casual boot features clean, simple lines that give it a relaxed appeal that looks great on a mountain trail or city street.

Interstate 90

Interstate 90

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 five-eyelet blucher has a robust look that comes from the heftiness of the split reverse welt and Othello rubber outsole. That kind of strong construction makes it perfect for your weekend activities in the park or midweek on an urban sidewalk.
