As much as I love summer, it sucks to have to put on shoes if you're going to anything more than just bumming around. I love my flip flops, but sometimes they just won't cut the mustard when it comes to my outdoor adventures. If you've ever found yourself with such a predicament, look no further, the answer to your problems is right in front of you, and you will not be disappointed. I love these shoes. So does my father. If you ski you know Solomon makes a good product, and now you can turn to them in the Summer too. Don't feel like throwing on those fly waders? These will help you get through any fast moving stream with algaed rocks and won't get stuck in the mucky areas. Any time its hot and you need some support, turn to these trusty friends- they'll come in only second to your dog.
