Basketball Shoe Shopping Season is Afoot


Basketball season is just around the corner, which means that it’s time to start searching for the shoe that best suits your style of play. Having various designs and brands (Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, and more) to choose from can make it difficult for one to find the perfect shoe. We are here to help you find the shoe that provides you with the mobility and comfort that you want on the court.

High-top vs. Low-top:

The choice between high-top and low-top shoes should be a matter of preference. Choose the shoes that make your feet the most comfortable. Low-top shoes are lighter than high-tops and provide for an increase in a player’s speed and agility. High-top shoes have added material around the ankle for extra support and are typically worn by larger players. Due to the extra ankle support in high-tops, a common misconception is that they are safer than low-tops. A prospective randomized study done by the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine concluded that “there is no strong relationship between shoe type and ankle sprains” after collecting injury information from players wearing high-top shoes, low-top shoes, and high-top shoes with inflatable air chambers.

Nike:

Nike is one of the most highly recommended brands of basketball shoes and offers over 50 shoes – including the infamous Air Jordan title.

For people seeking a shoe for speed and agility, Nike offers shoes like the Nike Zoom Run The One. This low-top shoe has an open mesh upper, which provides for enhanced ventilation and breathability. It also has a synthetic backing for added support and flexibility. The shoe’s Flywire technology, located in the forefoot, offers more support in the front of the foot. The shoe’s rubber outsole offers durability and traction to make quick cuts on the court.

Adidas:

Adidas offers a wide variety of basketball shoes, as well, and customers have very good things to say about them. One customer who reviewed the Adidas Cross Em 3 Basketball Shoes said, “As usual a perfect fit with Adidas. The shoes are stylish and tough.” He gave the shoe a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

Under Armour:

While Under Armour Basketball shoes are relatively new to the game, they are quickly becoming well known for their great fit and durability. A customer review for the Under Armour Micro G Anatomix Spawn Basketball Shoes said that he was “very pleased with the high quality of these shoes and the sleek look. Fit true to size and regular width.” He gave the shoes a rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

Throw the Perfect Football Party


Football season. The perfect opportunity to get your sport-loving family and friends together to watch the game, snack all day and have fun! Here are some simple ways to throw a fantastic football party at your home this season:

The Grub
     First, put out a tablecloth in your team’s colors or buy a green one and tape or paint the yard lines on. Next, set up buffet-style dining and offer your guests a variety of hot and cold finger foods. The simplest suggestions are wings, sandwiches, different dips with chips and pretzels, pizza and chili! If you're up for a challenge and have some extra time, a football stadium made out of all sorts of snacks would be the ultimate game day platter and would score big with your guests. Place beer and other beverages in a few ice buckets around the house so guests can grab them conveniently instead of crowding up the kitchen.

The Decorations
     Team spirit is everything! Start off with sending out some festive invitations such as DIY tickets and have them bring them to your house to get in like a real game. Buy a few banners and streamers that match your team colors, and put out a tailgate toss (cornhole) in the backyard.

The Kids
     Kids are kids, and their attention span will most likely not last all 4 quarters. If you have a TV in the basement, start them off there. Make it their own area and provide a separate snack table with team colored table covers, balloons and print off football coloring pages. Find old football helmets and let them pretend to be their favorite all-star (perfect photo op, too)! If the weather allows, let them run around outside at half-time and give the younger ones soft foam footballs.
 

 










The Wardrobe
     Lastly, who says football can’t be fashionable!? If you are actually attending the game, you will want to wear some sort of sneaker since you never know how much walking you’ll be doing. Sport your team’s jersey/colors and your most comfortable pair of jeans while attending a party.

Women’s: The BareTraps Rikita ankle booties come in black and brown and will go with any team color, while adding a little height to your laid-back game day look! They feature an inside zipper so you can get in and out of these boots quickly, a comfortable cushioned insole and a synthetic sole for durability. Add a vest or scarf if it’s super chilly getting to the party, but then easily take them off once you warm up.

Men’s: Take a break and toss the ball around during halftime while wearing the Reebok Zprint 3d running shoes. The 3D foot scan cushioning delivers optimal cushioned comfort and the dual-density midsole foam promotes a flexible, responsive ride. If it’s warm outside, flip flops and boat shoes are acceptable to wear with a jersey.

Kid’s: Style, functionality and comfort are all found in the Roxy Cassy boot for girls.  Made with faux fur lining for game days that are a bit chilly this fall, a synthetic upper with a fabric back and two adjustable straps, she will be kept secure and stylish and she runs around outside or cozies up on the couch. He’ll want to be like his favorite player and show off his speed in the New Balance Ka 680 running shoes. Designed with a synthetic upper, these shoes have a cool and classic look. Heel cushioning and support from the abzorb will keep him comfortable and safe as he cheers all day long.

Football parties are exciting and easy to throw, but make sure you have enough seating for all your guests, plenty of food and beverages and a TV that can be seen by all. Don’t be afraid to ask your guests to bring some extra chairs or a dish/dessert to pass around!

Boots, boots, boots!





     With fall comes boots, and lots of them! There are tons of chic updates on classic boot styles to wear for work and play. This season we have your feet covered with the hottest fall 2016 boot-trends from edgy ankle wedges to traditional tall leather boots. Scroll down to start the search for the perfect pair for you!


Ankle Booties
Ankle Booties (1)

What they are: Not quite a short boot, not a slip-on…but an interesting combination of the two. Coming up to about ankle width, these shoes give you a dressy yet casual look you’ll love to rock throughout the fall and winter seasons.

Featured here: Add some height to your steps with the BareTraps Rowan shortie boots (top left). The BareTraps Rowan is crafted using faux leather and are finished off with a strap and metallic buckle around the ankle for an appealing look. Let your bohemian side loose with the BCBGeneration Craftee ankle boot (top right) that features braided polyurethane straps that wrap around the ankle. Complete with a cushioned microsuede covered footbed and flexible rubber outsole, the BCBGeneration Craftee is cute and comfy! The Mia Fran (bottom left) is a stylish pull-on ankle bootie with a decorative side buckle, stacked heel and lightly cushioned footbed. The Harley Davidson Heyward (bottom right) shows off a western look in an urban ankle boot. These casual boots feature a full grain leather upper, a harness strap system, dual tone studs and a locking zipper to get them easily on and off.

How to wear it: Ankle boots add some flash and character to any outfit. The buckles, studs and fringe detailing can liven up any outfit and take your jeans and sweaters to the next level. They are appropriate for casual weekend events, shopping around town or even around the office. The style of these boots works with multiple jean lengths, but our favorite look is with cuffed and cropped jeans!

Over the Knee
Over The Knee

What they are: Over the knee boots have become quite a big trend and are defined by..well..their height. These boots attract the greatest amount of attention, but also do a good job at keeping your legs warm and cozy during the cold seasons. Keep in mind that tall boots have a different fit and feel on everyone depending on your leg shape.

Featured here: With rope-inspired detailing and a buckle strap, the BareTraps Shania tall dress boots (left) will add a hint of western influence to your wardrobe. A low hidden wedge style gives you a subtle boost in height, and the side-zip closure allows for easy on and off. Make an entrance with the Mia Sabato dress boots (middle). These knee-high riding style boots are just what you need to stay stylish during the colder months. Featuring strap and buckle detailing and a 2.5 inch block heel for an extra lift and traction, these boots and fashionable and functional. The Two Lips Justify Jammer tall boots (right) create a casual yet polished look. These riding boots feature three buckles that are a charming accent and ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

How to wear it: Tall boots are awesome because they allow you to mix and match different types of outfits based on different occasions. Basically, EVERYTHING looks good with them. Paired with a sweater dress, mini skirt or your favorite pair of skinny jeans, these tall boots will give you a flirty look that can easily be taken from day to night.

Exploring Types of Hiking Footwear




Selecting the proper shoe or boot should be one of the first decisions you make when it comes to gearing up for a hike. We are here to help you choose the proper footwear so you avoid stubbed toes, sore feet and blisters. Hiking footwear can be broken down into different categories based on things like location (terrain) and distance. When trying on shoes and boots, make sure you’re wearing the same type of socks you’ll be hiking in. Ideally, the heel should be snug with enough wiggle room for your toes up front. If you’re planning to do hiking in wintry conditions, look for extra toe room for thicker socks and better foot circulation. The miles will pass quickly when you're wearing footwear that suits you best!
 
Trail Running Shoes
     If you are hiking on well-established paths that do not have a lot of debris to get over, a pair of trail running shoes will do the trick. Trail running shoes are usually offered in low cut designs that are built with soft rubber outsoles, thick tread patterns and breathable mesh or nylon uppers. Glide down the trails in the Adidas Duramo 7! Designed to be light and fast, the Adidas Duramo 7 trail running shoes (for men and women), offer excellent cushioning and phenomenal support. The trail-specific outsoles feature lug patterns for maximum grip and traction on faster-paced journeys. These shoes caught our eye because they still maintain a sleek stylish design on top of delivering a high performance!

Hiking Shoes
     Hiking shoes are lighter and more flexible than boots. They are useful for day hikes and shorter excursions. The women’s Merrell Siren Edge H20 waterproof hiking shoes keep your feet dry and feeling good with mesh lining and fatigue-fighting cushioning. Equipped with a Vibram outsole, this hiking shoe delivers unparalleled traction on multiple terrains and has a bellows tongue that acts as a protective barrier against debris. The men’s Keen Saltzman Lo hiking shoes feature a springy midsole and high-traction outsole that provides long-lasting cushioning. Keen treated the mesh lining with a quick-drying hydrophobic coating and Cleansport NXT organic odor control. Hiking shoes are also a great choice for day-to-day casual wear, too.

Hiking Boots
     When backpacking or tackling rougher terrain, hiking boots lend better ankle support and reinforced protection that lower the risk of ankle injury in uneven areas. They are tough and capable of coping with different weather conditions as you face the wilderness. The women's Timberland Chocurua trail waterproof hiking boots are versatile and feature an active lug texture designed for four motions of the foot including braking, supporting, flexing and propelling for grip traction and stability. Make footprints on your favorite trail in the men's Merrell Phaser Peak waterproof hiking boots. The Merrell air cushion in the heel absorbs shock, while the Nubuck leather and bellows tongue are backed with a polyester mesh lining for a comfy feel across your dry feet. Both of these hiking boots have an adjustable lacing system for a tailored and personalized fit.

Once you purchase a pair of boots or shoes, break them in slowly starting with shorter hikes. Hiking footwear can be used for various outdoor activities…from actual hikes, to yard work or just simply looking trendy and snug as the weather gets crisp. Spend this fall climbing to the highest peaks, crossing ridges and enjoying the change in scenery while sporting one of these new arrivals. The trail awaits!
