  • XTRATUF Ankle Deck Boots Are For More Than Just Fishing

    Let's face it, my choice of footware is typically a good pair of flipflops but this winter has been a very wet one here in San Diego and that means it's time to join the rest of you guys in wearing some boots. The folks at XTRATUF reached out to me about getting a pair of their 6" Ankle Deck Boots and little did I know that we'd end up having so much rain in the past few weeks that they've truly come in handy!

  • Huk Classic Brewster Deck Shoes Are Perfect For Your Next Cruise

    Good shoes are one of the most important things to bring with you on any cruise. While people think first of jackets for Alaska cruises and swimsuits for warm weather voyages - a good solid pair of shoes for wearing around the ship is essential. While cruise lines do an excellent job of making sure that wet surfaces are dried quickly... damp outdoor decks are subject to weather and the area around pools is notoriously slippery due to dripping wet swimwear. Ultimately though, the challenge is finding a great pair of shoes that is stable enough for these situations that is also comfortable enough to wear all day long and yet still be appropriate to wear to dinner.

  • Kizik Shoe Is The Slip On Lace Up For Guys Who Want Comfort And Style

    I'll share a little secret - I hate lacing up my shoes and I generally favor comfort and convenience over stability. Most shoes frankly aren't designed for this and all of my sneakers have broken heels. Some shoes work better for improvised slip-ons than others and some like this pair from Kizik is actually designed to work exactly the way I want. Simply put, while most shoes have a firm heel area that over time will fold, soften, and break as you jam your foot into it... Kizik shoes have support that will spring back up once your foot is comfortably inserted.

  • These Reef Fanning Sandals Even Have A Bottle Opener Built In

    Living in San Diego, I've become somewhat of a flip flops snob as they are pretty much all I ever wear unless I'm going somewhere that needs protection from the weather or more support. What I've not seen before was a pair of men's sandals that have a bottle opener built right into the sole. Till now! These Fanning men's sandals are functional and they also feel great for walking around town.

  • Florsheim Lakeside Is My New Favorite Traveling Shoe

    The brand Florsheim is widely recognized but I feel like many folks - including myself - identify it as more conservative, fancier, and though very well constructed... not always the most comfortable shoes. That has clearly changed in the last few years as two of my absolutely favorite and most comfortable shoes are made by Florsheim. This includes the Lakeside "boat shoe" that I took with me on a recent cruise and has now earned it's place as my preferred show for traveling.

  • Florsheim Java Is My New "Go To" Casual Slip On Shoe

    Aside from times when I need a full shoe - hiking, factory tours, formal dress occasions I usually wear flip flops. Here in San Diego that's pretty much a year-round footwear option and I like the casual easy to take on and off nature of it. In the winter however, it isn't the best option and that is especially true when it's cold and raining. So when Florsheim offered to send me a pair of their new Java "Nylon Moc Toe Slip On" shoes I was excited to check them out.

  • Are Crosskix A Crocs Killer?

    Despite being incredibly comfortable, the classic Crocs look is one of the most ugly looking shoes known to man... and woman... and non-binary as well I presume. While some folks love them, the reality is that they are almost one of those things that is so iconic that you will either love or hate them. The folks at CrossKix have set out to change that by bringing the comfort Crocs offers and offering it in a style that looks like your everyday wear tennis shoe.

  • Loom Waterproof Sneakers Might Be The Prefect Shoes For Fall Walks

    This review of Loom Footwear's waterproof sneakers was a bit challenging because on one hand I REALLY liked the shoes, they were well made and super comfortable... but as a size 13 guy with one foot a bit bigger than the other, well... it just didn't fit right.  They did send a pair to my wife and her feet were a bit more narrow and so it fit better than than mine did.  The key to success here is for guys with big feet, order a size larger than you think you need.

  • Frosty’s Footwear: A Guide to Today’s Best Winter Boots for Men

  • Driving Moccasins Make Performance Driving More Comfortable

    Any guy that has ever sat behind the wheel of a performance automobile has probably thought about gloves to help improve their performance, but what about shoes? We took a spin in a pair of moosehide driving moccasins that Minnetonka sent me to see what it was like wearing these instead of my classic cross-trainers or flip flops and while it is a different feeling - they are stylish and there are significant comfort and performance advantages.

  • Samuel Hubbard - Getaway Shoes Review

    I love comfortable shoes - especially when they look as good as they feel. That's what I discovered when these shoes arrived a couple weeks ago from the Samuel Hubbard company. While the company has a long and complex heritage stretching back to 1930, and more recently the current CEO is also the co-founder of The Rockport Company - one of my favorite shoe brands years ago. Unfortunately for that brand, it seems to have gotten lost in a convoluted series of mergers and acquisitions over the years. When I slipped the Hubbards on for the first time though, it immediately brought back that same sense of comfort, quality, and style that I used to love in my Rockports years ago.

  • We Love Our Gambino Alliance Shadow Blue Suede Derby Shoes

    I love it when brands send me a new pair of shoes and this is especially true when the samples are well made, good looking and comfortable. All that's true with the Blue Suede Derby shoes that Gambino Alliance sent me to test out. 

  • I Love My PF Flyers Shoes

    Part of the fun of fashion is making a statement and the other half is comfort (with a bit of simply feeling good because you look good!). While browsing the selection of shoes at PF Flyers I saw a ton of different options that looks great. There was a mixture of big bold designs as well as more classic looks.
