Forget your normal sandals — this summer, flip your burgers (or copies) wearing theseflippy floppies. Made in Brazil since 1962, Havaianas Flip Flops ($18) are simple, rubber, monochrome flip flops that will keep your feet comfortable while leaving the attention to your attire.
Historically, joggers have had to choose between stability and cushioning when buying running shoes. The new Nike LunarGlide+ ($100) features a "Dynamic Support" system that both cushions and stabilizes, creating a single running shoe that adapts to each step. A rear-foot wedge is paired with a lightweight but firm foam core, with welded overlays so there are no seams to chafe or irritate on longer runs. This technology was tested and proven by the 2008 Beijing Olympic athletes, so we're pretty sure these kicks will stand up to your weekly jog. You might even improve your time.
Real life isn't always sunshine and rainbows — sometimes it rains. When it does, you'll need the right boots to weather the storm. The high quality Hunter Festival Boots ($135) were originally designed for treading across Scotland's rough terrain through inclement weather, and have become known for legendary durability and excellent comfort. Vulcanized rubber and quick-dry nylon lining mesh with a cushioned insole and a natural rubber outer-sole. Hunters are great for gardening, fishing, and any outdoor activities where you might meet moisture. Old-fashioned craftsmanship meets the finest materials to create boots for real life that feel good and last for years.
