Tech Tuesday: Ahnu Numentum

Ahnu focuses on footwear that provides the proper balance of cushioning, flexibility, durability, traction and grip for all of your favorite outdoor activities—from the sidewalk, to the beach, to the mountain trail.


Numentum Technology is a neutral positioning system that is engineered to encourage the natural biomechanics of your foot in order to maximize the stability and efficiency of your stride, wherever it takes you.


Numentum Hike is intended to maintain balance on trails, with or without a pack.  The 60 Durometer EVA midsole and High density  (70 Durometer)EVA plugs with external struts on both the lateral and media sides of the heel give you both the heel stability you expect from a rugged hiker, and the welcome under-foot comfort of an athletic shoe.  A slip-resistant and non-marking Vibram outsole ensures you will keep your footing. However, if you do misstep, a shock-dispersing plate in the forefoot is designed to protect your foot from bruising.


One of our customer favorites is the Montara Boot.  A mid-height hiking boot, the Montara features Numentum Hike technology as well as waterproof eVent® technology in the form of a breathable bootie.  The Montara is light weight and can be used with packs up to 40lbs.  Shown above in Astral Aura (blue), the Ahnu Montara Boot is also available in Tawny Port (red) and in Black.


Customers love it because it keeps them stable even on the most rugged terrain, but the waterproof, stylish design also serves well in the puddles of city streets–and the light-weight comfort allows you to wear them for extended periods of time in either environment.

NEW ARRIVALS! Spring into Vibram FiveFingers with NEW colors!

Banner Brand 11022010053355PM Vibram FiveFingers: Start With Your Feet Vibram has been a world leader in high-performance rubber soles since they started in 1935. FiveFingers shoes are at the cutting edge of barefoot running, and new colors for Spring are available now at! Show off some spring color or keep it basic with black, but set your feet free!


Men’s (Red-Black / Black-Blue / Black )

Women’s (Grey-Pink / Black)

The KSO Evo allows you to feel more underfoot while remaining comfortable. The reinforced upper and speed lace allows your foot to glide in easily and stay there. You will love the grip and flexibility offered from the zig-zag patterned sole. Great for light trekking and trail running.

Bikila EVO

Men’s (Blue-Yellow / Black-Yellow / Orange-Black / Yellow-Blue)

Women’s (Blue-Green / Orange-Purple / Yellow-Pink  / Black-Yellow-Magenta)

Designed for those road runners who want all of the benefits of going barefoot with slightly more cushion, the Bikilia EVO is a great shoe for new minimalist users. The sole is thick enough to offer more comfort for medium distance running, but it is still thin, with a maximum sole thickness of 8.5mm (2.5 Rubber/4-EVA/2-insole). Great for light trekking, running, fitness, and travel.

KMD Sport LS

Men’s (Black-Silver-Grey / Black-Yellow-Green)

Women’s (Blue-Green / Grey-Black-Pink)

With  stitch-free, seamless 2mm footbed and 4mm Vibram TC1 performance rubber outsole, the KMD Sport LS has the same aggressive multisport design as the original KMD Sport. The difference is that the LS features Vibram’s popular speed lacing system.  In addition to how quick and easy it will be to get these shoes on, the speed lacing system also accommodates wider feet and higher insteps.

TrekSport Sandal

Men’s (Grey-Orange)

Women’s  (Pink-Purple / Grey-Orange )

The TrekSport Sandal is the first sport sandal with the dexterity of separated toes and ground feedback that you would expect from Vibram. The skid-resistant sole provides excellent grip on slippery or uneven surfaces and the anti-microbial insole protects your feet even during excessive hours of jogging or walking.

SeeYa LS

Men’s (Green-Black)

The SeeYa LS is a versatile running sneaker with minimal rubber thickness in the outsole to will keep you connected to the ground. Micro-suede overlay and padded tongue keep your feet secure and comfortable. Excellent for fitness and after-sport use as well as for running.

You can learn more about barefoot running and Vibram in this blog post.

Work It Wednesday: Ecco Street Sport Golf Shoes

Golf On Sale Now: Ecco Golf Shoes

Ecco began in 1963 as a family company, and they remain so today, with their own tannery. Known for breaking the mold, ECCO creates comfortable golf shoes, including hybrid styles that you can wear “off the course or on the tour”.

Ecco’s street style was put on the map in 2010 when Fred Couples wore them while playing in the 74th Masters tournament.  Couples is known for his calm and casual style, and the Street Sport golf shoe fits his personality as well as it fits his foot.

The Ecco Street Sport Golf Shoe is certainly on the more casual end of golf, but we think that’s a good thing. They are perfect for the walking golfer with a busy schedule: comfortable, built to move with the foot, and are spike-less so that they can be worn off the course as well.

That means that you can put them on, go to work, get in a round of golf, go to the grocery store, get in a round of golf, go out to eat, get in a round of golf, drive home for the night, all without changing your shoes. They won’t be uncomfortable after a long day or look out of place off of the course. At The Shoe Mart, we have the Street Sport in great colors, and each pair comes with two sets of laces,  one of which matches the outsole of the shoe.

Work it Wednesday: Alden Shoes

The first Alden shoes were produced in 1884, in America.  Each pair of hand-stitched leather shoes represents more than a century-old tradition of craftsmanship and quality.  The Alden Shoe company believes in focusing on improving the quality of their products rather than promoting them, creating shoes that speak for themselves.

The methodical tanning process used on Alden Shell Cordovan leather alone takes six months to finish, and creates leather that is durable, soft, and supple.  There is only a single tannery still producing genuine shell cordovan today.

So how, exactly, does one wear this masterpiece?

We searched the internet to bring you some of our favorite looks, dressy and casual. More can be found on our Pinterest Work It Wednesday board.
