Holiday Gifts: Gals on the Go: Footwear Part 4

Hikers set to go places-need lightweight low cut boots-that are comfy enough to wear on an air bound plane  as well as on earth bound trails...

A pair of these will last longer than the trip...all durable, wearable kicks that will last years.
from Montana based OBOZ-this lightweight 9.3oz/quick dry mesh , minimally seamed hiker has that label's signature  protective TPU overlays + grippy Hyalite outsole-with protective ESS overlays-toe bumps and durable buuild-yet as comfy as a trail running sneaker. Fit-true to size... 

BOA dial-micro adjustment makes this TREKSTA lightweight hiker easy on/off and guarantee don't have to re-tie laces that always seem to not stay tied! With a grippy Hypergrip® outsole, form fitting  EVA insole for arch support, and highly breathable mesh-waterproof (Gore-Tex®) upper-all day comfort NestFit system cradles feet + Ice Lock grips-whether strolling streets, sidewalks or trails. Fit wise-we found run a tad big -about a half size...esp if narrow heels-and even with that BOA closure which cinches all around-so might want to half size down.
CHACO---for those who worship their arch supportive PU midsole and signature LUVSEAT™ footbed of their summer sandals...the PEDSHED is back $120 ...closed toe sandal hybrid with ladder-lock buckle - adjusts the web for easy adjustment---all day wearable-serious arch support.

Full grain leather uppers-3 color choices....are weather tough, grippy outsole. Fit wise-with CHACO we need to go a half size down from our dress dress shoe size- unless planning on wearing with super super pair of thick socks-...or two.

For the gals practicing poses...
 YOGA SPORT™-with the Ahnu Numentum® technology that provides supportive stability, integrated flexibility and ultra lightweight comfort!

AHNU-so smart-has a line of YOGASPORT™ shoes that  are hybrids---wear them on mats, lifting weights, or on certain cardio gym machines...and then keep them on for post workout coffee with the gals - Vegan YOGA FLEX $110 six color options with engineered forefoot flex zone that allows the foot to naturally bend and flex- and second density heel pod-that coddles the foot and helps the secure comfy fit+balance, breathable mesh upper, dual density foam footbed and  ultra-gripping  Spider Rubber™ outsole...we have a pair that take us from the subway to an indoor bike session-and post stretching/rolling...without slippage.
