Everyday Shoes from Outdoor Brands

posted in: Outdoors | 2

I love being outdoors and know for sure that when you’re enjoying the countryside what you need is something decent on your feet to make getting around nice and comfortable. I lean towards decent outdoors footwear brands such as Merrell, KEEN, The North Face and Salomon (to name just a few – I’m not fussy as long as it’s decent). But as I can’t be in hiking boots or technical walking shoes all the time, it’s great to see that many of these outdoor-focussed footwear companies are catering for more everyday shoes too – and they’re becoming very wearable.

Merrell Whisper Flat Shoes

I have recently treated myself to these Whisper Flush flats from Merrell. You can’t get much more “everyday” really – flat black leather shoes with a decent sole; very sensible! A bit of detail in the leather work and stitching means they are not plain by any means, and are the sort of thing I will live in once it’s a bit too warm for my Dr Martens.

They have some of the features you expect from Merrell’s more technical range, too. The M Select Fresh odour control should keep the leather lining fresh, M Select Move foot-bed should keep my feet comfortable with or without socks, and the M Select GRIP providing durable traction that grips when and where you need it.  Hopefully all these things mean I will be as happy when on my feet for a day at work as I am on my feet for a day in the countryside.

What do you think? Do you like my new Merrells? Do you look at outdoor brands when you need new everyday shoes?

    These shoes look really comfy. So often comfort means losing out on style but these shoes are really smart. I’ll definitely be checking them out!
