Patagonia Shoes: Women's Brown Waterproof Insulated GTX Shoes T80540
We know you've noticed the recent ad campaigns for hybrid cars, low emissions vehicles, and electric cars. Car companies seem to be trying to convince us that they love nature as much as we do and that they love green trees not green money. You know what we say to that? If you love nature, walk in it. Maybe it's not only about reducing your carbon footprint--it's also about leaving some actual ones. Tramping through the mud and scrambling up a rocky incline are easy when you're wearing Patagonia Women's Waterproof Canteen Dark Celadon Drifter AC GTX Shoes T80540.
These hikers are designed for people who love nature so much they actually go outside and experience it. Since they're lined with a Gore-Tex membrane and feature a full-grain leather and mesh upper, you don't have to worry about watching where you step all the time. The leather in the upper is made of Nubuk, a naturally water-resistant, oil-resistant, and abrasion-resistant material. The mesh fabric in the upper allows the shoes to breathe easily and dry quickly. Gore-Tex lining makes these hikers impermeable to water from without. Water is also kept out by a bellows tongue. "Bellows tongue" means that the tongue of the boot folds out from the boot itself instead of being sewn on separately at the base. This construction ensures that debris or water can't get around the edges of the tongue because there aren't edges.
The color of these boots, a dark celadon green, looks great with all sorts of outdoorsy clothing. Whether you're bundled up for winter trekking or chose to wear them indoors, they fit with any wardrobe. A heel loop and front laces make them easy to get on and off.
Make sure your feet are warm and dry with two types of lining. Air mesh lining wicks moisture and sweat away from your feet, helping with foot health. Polartec lining offers a layer of warmth, so these shoes are a great choice for cold-weather wear.
Offering the firmest structure available from Patagonia, these shoes are for those who need supportive footwear. Firm Support/Flex means that these sneaker-styled shoes keep your feet in line as you walk and that the soles are not very flexible. Instead, the soles are firm and sturdy--intended for hiking on uneven surfaces.
But Drifter shoes aren't only sturdy--they're comfortable as well. These offer a 20% EVA anatomical footbed that's soft, durable, and shaped to offer superior support to your feet. There's something wrong with the idea of "breaking in" new shoes. If shoes hurt, they don't fit. These are designed to fit your feet right from the get go. They've got a technology called Patagonia Air Cushion Plus that absorbs shocks; with each step you take these walking shoes protect your feet.
Inside, you'll love that the Bi-Fit insole also provides support and structure. This insole is a board made of 80% post-consumer recycled polyurethane that's waterproof and hard. When you step on rocks or other sharp surfaces, they won't poke through to your shoes.
The outsoles are Vibram Trail Ecostep outsoles. The Vibram soles that Patagonia uses in their hiking shoes is a Vibram Trek compound which offers both grip for secure traction and abrasion-resistance for durability.
Be your own sort of hybrid in Patagonia Women's Waterproof Canteen Dark Celadon Drifter AC GTX Shoes T80540. Wear them to play or to work (they're approved with ISO 14001 ratings)--enjoy yourself wherever you go and be prepared for adventure!
