Need a way out of that cold winter slump? We’ve got the ultimate transition pieces to take you straight from winter to spring with ease: trendy and fun perforated cutout shoes.

Not only could you choose the Peri flats in cool hues like Lemon Freeze and Tomato Puree, you can also find an impeccable fit in the classic neutral Marine Navy. Along with the perforated cutouts, the allover delicate jewel details transform these classic flats into a look more than ready to jumpstart springtime.
2. Jessica Simpson Chinah Sandals – The perfect neutral heel – available in Bermuda Pink, Black, and Light Luggage Brown – to kick start the first days of warm weather. The intricate perforated details, in fun triangle and circle shapes, create an elevated on trend look. A slight hidden platform offers additional comfort without sacrificing your style for a night on the town!
3. DV by Dolce Vita Moe Oxfords – Oxfords have an effortless and classic look, but the perforations on the Moe oxfords create a whole new presence. They’re the ultimate casual choice for any fashionista needing a break from her heels, while still putting a little prep in her step.

If you’re looking for a new look after a long, cold winter, pair these bronze beauties with your first spring cocktail dress. These dress sandals really have it all: the distinctive three separate straps, the metallic shine, and, of course, those fabulous perforated cutouts.
5. Vince Camuto Kalista Mesh Booties – This elegant bootie is a flawless transition shoe between seasons. Pair the Kalista booties with tights to give the cutouts the opportunity to stand out. For the start of spring, these same unique cutouts will be the essential tool in facing the warmer temperatures while still giving you the perfect amount of coverage.
6. DV by Dolce Vita Edlyn Penny Loafers – Penny loafers are the key to effortlessly mixing both feminine and masculine elements, and the Edlyn loafers are no different. These cutouts add the perfect touch to this classic style. This loafer is available in the neutral Bone and the bold, colorblocked Coral.

Chasing The Perfect Running Shoe

Athletic-Banner

If not quite on the same par with the search for the Holy Grail, the quest for The Perfect Running Shoe has a venerable pedigree.  After all, runners as a group are serious about their sport and they take their footwear equally as seriously.

Runners will tell you,  however, there is no single “perfect shoe” for all runners, for every purpose.  Still, there is enough commonality that these  features/principles seem to be optimal:

An optimal running shoe should move with the foot, maximizing its natural range of motion.  Nike is a pioneer in this area. Take the Nike Women’s Free Run 5.0+ Barefoot Running Shoes, for example:  they are designed to allow the foot to flex and bend while still providing unparalleled support, protection  and cushioning. Constructed of lightweight mesh, these running shoes feature an inner sleeve that cradles the foot as it moves.

An optimal running shoe will feature different densities in its sole, allowing for a soft, cushioned “ride” with firm support.  Nike Men’s Dual Fusion Run 2 Running Shoes have a dual-density sole with a firm Phylon carrier and a softer interior Phylon core.  This  “best of both worlds” approach give runners the comfort and injury-protection they need.

An optimal running shoe will feature an open mesh upper to mazimize moisture drainage and breathability.  Runners will run in all kinds of weather, including wet weather.  That means finding footwear like ASICS Women’s Gel-Noosa Tri 9 Running Shoes, which can “drain” themselves,  is essential.  Breathability simply means the shoe can dry out faster,  eliminating odor problems.

An optimal running shoe will feature a sole with rubber lugs that grip the running surface securely, whether that surface is a treadmill, street pavement or off-road.  Nike Men’s Free 5.0 Barefoot Running Shoes, have that kind of sole, man!

Oh, one more consideration:

An optimal running shoe will look cool! Check out the futuristic Nike Women’s Free 4.0 Running Shoes.  With their sleek lines and Atomic Orange color, these shoes look like they could run a marathon on Mars, all by themselves. They’re the bomb, baby!

Inside or Out: UGG Australia Has Guys Covered This Winter!

Winter forces me to think about staying warm and dry, whether I’m shoveling snow or relaxing by a crackling fire.  Whatever I’m wearing on top, I look to UGG Australia to keep my tootsies comfortable and stylish when the north winds howl.

721775

If I’m out sledding with the kids,  I like either the UGG Australia Noxon Boots, with their waterproof full-grain leather upper, or UGG Australia Men’s Ory Waterproof Boots, which feature Thinsulate technology for the ultimate in warmth.  When I’ve had enough of making snow angels,  I head inside and don my UGG Australia Men’s Ascot Suede Slippers for the foot-pampering that can only come from real sheep or lamb’s wool cradling my toes.  (I like their molded rubber out sole, which means I can sneak outside to the woodpile for another log without having to put my boots back on!)   Some guys may prefer UGG Australia Men’s “Scuff” Slippers,  which are even easier to put on, and  look great paired with your favorite long robe.

Alas, some guys may have to attend a holiday party this season, or, gulp, actually go to the office.  For those times, I would suggest UGG Australia Reefton Casual Loafers because of their  cool, understated elegance and snow-defying leather upper. You might also consider UGG Australia Men’s Via Pitti Moc-Toe Loafers: they are formal enough for the office but would look equally at home around the punch bowl.

Any way you look at it, guys, UGG Australia has winter down cold!
