Jeremy and Lila Stewart just celebrated the tenth anniversary of their Dallas-based flip-flop company, Hari Mari. Born out of the futile search for comfortable sandals in colors other than the typical black and brown, the married founders who met on a blind date decided to make a change. Now they are offered in Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, J. Crew, and Zappos, making them one of the most popular brands of sandals on the market.
But they didn’t stop with just summer footwear; they realized the same problems exist through all footwear and branched into creating boots as well. Endeavoring to combine the function of a great work boot with the high-quality materials of a luxury fashion boot, their newest crop of men’s boots is perfect for the season. Here are the Hari Mari Boots that would be an ideal addition to any shoe wardrobe. These are the winter boots that will get you through season after season for years to come. Womens Sneakrs Shoes
The striking two-tone Porters are the perfect boots to start any list of must-haves, regardless of brand. The striking cap-toe boot can be dressed up or dressed down, as it’s perfect with denim and flannel or chinos and a sport coat. Whether you’re headed on a casual outing or going to a backyard barbeque, these will fit in perfectly. Choose from a solid walnut option or the two-tone mahogany with a dark fabric cutout. Both feature a ridge logo.
Chelsea boots are an essential addition to every footwear wardrobe, reaching all the way back to the 1950s English rock scene. Popularized by the Beatles and Rolling Stones, they are the pinnacle of unique style and ease. The lack of laces makes them a quick slip-on that retains the style of a lace-up dress boot or hiking boot. The Odessa from Hari Mari is the perfect mixture between the dress boot and the hiking boot. With leather or suede options, they feature memory foam insoles and crepe-textured outsoles, making them the most comfortable and stylish shoes in your closet. They will be the easiest way to look like John Lennon or Mick Jagger; learning the guitar is up to you.
Hari Mari founders Jeremy and Lila Stewart are travelers, constantly chasing sunsets around the world. That passion bled into their designs, and the CanyonTrek II is a product of that pursuit. These boots provide the comfort and durability to hike to Machu Pichu without the uncomfortable break-in period of most boots. The moccasin toes give them some flare in the front, while the embroidered horizon logo on the back removes any doubt that these boots are made to see the world.
Whether you’re trekking across the globe or from aisle five to six in your local supermarket, the desert boot is the perfect best-of-both-worlds option. The Adobe from Hari Mari is the next in the long line of boots with roots going all the way back to WWII. The genuine suede body and crepe-textured outsoles add grip and traction to timeless style. Few boots in a man’s arsenal bridge the gap between civilian style and military readiness like these beauties.
As you brave winter weather and look forward to when you can don shorts and sandals once again, your feet deserve to continue on in style. These boots will elevate any wardrobe that needs class and timeless elegance. Join the Stewarts as they traverse the world’s landscapes while staying stylish and comfortable.
A backpack used to be considered a back-to-school staple for campuses and classrooms, but now backpacks come into good use far beyond school campus. Cool backpacks abound, and they are practically everywhere you look. The best backpacks are designed to get you from A-to-Z efficiently and without missing a beat, but they can and do serve a greater purpose beyond that. Not only can they function well in carrying your load, but they can also up your style game and complete the ultimate work week look.
There's a backpack to suit every taste and style, and some of the best backpacks can go everywhere from the office to a day hike to a weekend jaunt around the city. And make no mistake, these backpacks are not like the ones you used in elementary school! Instead, these backpacks are all grown up these days, featuring premium materials like leather and canvas. For a new and surprisingly stylish way to haul your gear, these are our favorite backpack picks.
One of the core lessons we learn in our youth is never to judge a book by its cover; it's what's on the inside that counts. Well, we're here to tell you that that is terrible advice. It's human nature to make up your mind about someone the moment you meet them. When you enter a job interview, the interviewer subconsciously makes a lot of judgments about you on the spot. Think of it as a scale of 0–10, where 10 gets you hired and zero gets you pushed to the back of the unemployment line. The moment your interviewer lays eyes on you, you are either a 0 or a 10, and the rest of the interview will likely only reaffirm that number.
If you think it gets better once you have a job, guess again. It actually happens more often. As you move up in your company, you have the people above you and below you in rank going through the same process. This is why your professional wardrobe can make all the difference and even make you more money. Here's how.
Comfort is the key to enjoying fall camping. Let's face it — those days of warm summer evenings lounging about in ultra-light clothing are behind you. Or are they? It's common knowledge that merino wool offers the ultimate in camping comfort, and with a choice of two weights — lightweight or full cozy — Ibex has cornered the market for camping joggers this fall.
Until now, taking joggers with you on a camping trip has been largely frowned upon, especially by purists. Understandably too. The majority of joggers are heavy, made from cotton, and offer little practical value when compared with a pair of hiking pants. But if we're honest, hiking pants aren't great in camp. They just don't have that comfortable, cozy feel that you want when you're sipping on a whiskey around the campfire and shooting the breeze with your buddies. I've been using both the Hero pants and the new lightweight version — the Nomad pants — this fall for camping and van life adventures, and here are my thoughts on why you should add these to your fall camping packing list.
