Hiking Shoe Trend for 2011 = Multifunctional Footwear

Hiking boots and shoes carry a pariticular style just like athletic shoes, dress shoes and any other style. The trend for 2011 is the multifunctional hiker. Hiking shoes are no longer strictly being used for hiking mountains and trails anymore. Instead many people choose to use hiking shoes and boots for walking and general everyday use. With this trend becoming very popular, manufacturers are designing a new lightweight, multifunctional series of hiking boots and shoes. Rogan's Shoes carries a variety of different models that work toward this new trend.
