At The Bar


There’s nothing better than watching the game with a great beer at your favorite bar–but things can turn ugly pretty quickly in a room full of passionate sports fans.  Nothing will get you through the night better than a tough Wolverine boot. You want a style that’s sleek enough to look good, but also something that can handle that unfortunate spilled beverage. The waxed suede of the Wolverine Julian Boot (35% off!) is no-fuss, and the platation crepe sole will keep you steady over spills.

You’ve worked hard to make your man-cave the perfect place to watch the game, so put your feet up and relax in a pair of super-comfortable slippers from L.B. Evans.

Protecting Your Feet From the Cold

As the temperature outside drops, the risk of cold-related injury to your feet increases. Prolonged exposure to cold weather can result in frostbite or–in the case of very humid or damp conditions—trench foot or pernio.

You face a greater risk of frostbite and other cold-related injuries if you have poor circulation or nerve damage, have been consuming alcohol (increases body heat loss), or use products that contain nicotine.  Here are some tips to protect your feet from the cold:

1. Stay nourished and hydrated.  Dehydration, lack of nutrients, and low blood sugar can all have a negative effect on your body’s temperature regulation.

2. Stay warm. Layer your clothing.  Your base layer should be an insulating material that wicks away sweat and moisture, such as wool or synthetic material.  Wear socks in materials designed for cold weather, such as Smartwool and Darn Tough socks.  Longer socks offer more protection than ankle socks.

3. Stay dry. Remember that drier feet are warmer feet. Clothing should be waterproof if possible. Avoid Cotton because it retains moisture, choose synthetic or wool instead.  Carry an extra pair of socks in case your first pair gets wet from sweat or the elements. You can help prevent your feet from sweating with antiperspirant products, foot powders, and special insoles.

4. Pick the right shoe–in the right size! Waterproof shoes are preferable in wet, cold weather. Be sure that the shoes are a good fit, and that you try them on with the pair of socks you intend to wear with them. (For info on how to try on shoes properly, watch the video below.) Shoes that are too tight can interfere with blood flow. Shoes that are too loose will allow exposure to wind and cold.

5. Rotate your shoes.  Your feet need time to breathe in order to stay healthy—and so do your shoes.  Rotating between two or more winter shoes is ideal so that each pair has time to air out and dry, creating a better environment for your feet.

Classic Men’s Boots

Classic Men's Boots

The season is upon us, and in the shoe world that means one thing: boots. Boots are a necessary part of your winter wardrobe. Boots look great and they keep your feet warm. When navigating the wintry mix and undesirable temperatures, wearing a great looking pair of boots will make you noticeably more confident than attempting to hop across puddles in tennis shoes. Confidence is attractive.  When you have a solid pair of boots on your feet, it makes you feel a little more solid too.  Let’s face it, a well worn pair of boots is a cherished and distinctive sign of character.

Finding the right pair of boots for yourself is a joy worth experiencing in this life. To help, here are some Men’s Boots worthy of calling perennial classics.

Alden 405 Indy Boot


The Alden 405 is called the Indy Boot because Harrison Ford wore it in the Indiana Jones movies, not because he was assigned to wear them as part of the role, but because Harrison Ford was a rugged carpenter before he got the part and the 405 was his boot of choice for all of his rugged carpenter needs. I mean these things are solid. And even if you aren’t a rugged carpenter, we’re pretty confident you will appreciate their unmatched construction and quality. The Indy Boot has maintained a dedicated and loyal following throughout the years because they look amazing, offer tremendous support and outlast basically everything else on the market.

Clarks Desert Boot


A timeless classic. A Clarks Desert Boot adorns the feet of countless well-dressed people. Why? Because for the money you cannot go wrong. A classic silhouette and durable construction that pairs phenomenally with jeans. Check out the Clarks Desert Boot Core, as well!

Wolverine 1,000 Mile Boot

Wolverine Men's 1000 Mile Boot

A re-boot of a classic Wolverine design, the 1,000 Mile Boot harkens back to an era when the lifetime of a boot could be measured in miles. Now life moves at a slightly different pace, but the style and craftsmanship of this boot continue to deliver on the promise of the namesake. Putting a pair of these on will instantly make you look and feel built to last. Nothing, not the sidewalk, not the calendar, not the weather will be able to stop you.
