No matter how nice of a pair of boots you buy, it only takes a few wet days trudging through the mud to make them look like crap. Get your boots ready for rainy weather, and keep them looking good for years with a can of Red Wing Boot Oil ($20). Made from an all-natural mix of pine pitch and mink oil, it prevents boots from cracking and drying, lengthens their life, and helps them repel water. It'll even restore good looks to that pair of boots you've abandoned in your closet for years.
There's no question that shoe technology keeps evolving — ever since some genius thought to add pumps to a pair of kicks, we haven't looked back. The Adidas Springblade ($180) may represent the next critical step in that evolution. Each pair features 16 downward-angled blades in the midsoles that react to your movement and the pavement, springing you off the ground with each step. Couple that with a better fit on the top of the foot and improved temperature resistance, and your old running shoes may be relegated to the back of your closet. Available in August.
Weather in the Summer is about as predictable as the stock market. But, thanks to the Puma Faas Lite Golf Shoes ($100) you can golf with confidence regardless of what the sky looks like. In fact, they're so confident about the waterproofing on these shoes that they've guaranteed it for a year. Lightweight, waterproof microfiber leather keeps your feet dry even after a nasty downpour, and won't weigh you down when it's dry out. SmartQuill traction technology gives you great footing regardless of the terrain, or its condition.
