Four Shoes to Take You From Day To Night

 DayandNight

Shoes are a huge investment for your wardrobe—but they can make or break a look. Today we’re showing you four extremely versatile shoes that you can take from day to night without a problem.

Santoni Men’s Patrick

A pair of elegant penny loafers like the Patrick from Santoni will work as long as you do, and play along afterward.  It’s slim silhouette is an upgrade to the traditional penny loafer.

Johnston & Murphy Men’s Atchison Cap Toe

The Atchinson Cap Toe from Johnston and Murphy is an awesome go-to for business casual or for an after-work dinner.  Comfortable, flexible, and durable, you can wear this style all day.

Alden Men’s Cap Toe Boot Shell Cordovan

Ankle Boots give your look a more masculine presence.  Shell Cordovan is elegant, but wearing a boot instead of a shoe will make you look less out of place later on.  One of our top-sellers, the Alden Men’s Cap Toe Boot on the Alden Grant Last also comes in Color 8, which can be worn in just about any situation that you would wear the Black Shell in. The Shell Cordovan styles of the Alden Indy Boot are also a great option—crafted on the wider TruBalance Last instead of the Grant.

Cole Haan Women’s Air Juliana Pump 75

A shoe for women that works great for Day to Night wear is the Air Juliana Pump 75 from Cole Haan. The stacked heel is just the right height for an evening out, but the Nike Air technology will keep your feet in plush comfort all day long.

Keep in mind that the appropriateness of a shoe depends on your location. For example, loafers are perfectly acceptable in some office settings but may seem too casual in others.

We played it pretty safe with our selections, but we like to see you mix it up. What’s your go-to shoe, day or night?

We have a new blog up featuring 4 shoes that can take you from Day to Night!

Stay Active: Athletic Shoes

It’s October: It’s colder, the kids are back in school, and people are starting to spend less time outside. However, continuing to remain physically active is one of the best ways to keep away the upcoming winter blues!

As we mentioned last week, at TheShoeMart we enjoy helping you find shoes that suit your purpose. This week, we’re taking an extra-close look at athletic shoes so that you have the right tools to stay fit this season.

First up is the New Balance 990. The 990 first debuted in 1982, and has been loved since as a classic American stability shoe. This shoe is great for the mild-to-moderate overpronator since it is designed to reduce inward rolling of the foot while running.  Most runners with normal or medium arches will fall into this category.

  

Also from New Balance, we have the 890v4. A lightweight neutral cushioning shoe, it is a great choice for underpornators (supinators) and midfoot or forefoot strikers.

Moderate to Severe overpronators with low or flat arches should look at motion control shoes like the  1080, 1260, and 3040.

If you’d like to take your running off-road…

Consider Inov-8’s RocLite 295, a durable choice with deep cleats perfect for your next trail run or unpredictable adventure.

If you’re really not into running, you might consider weight lifting as a way to stay active.

Pendlay DoWin 2013 Weightlifting Shoes are a traditional weightlifting shoe created solely for Olympic weightlifting. You can read more about why you need specific shoes for weightlifting here.

The Inov-8 Fastlift, Reebok Lifter 2.0 and Reebok Lifter Plus 2.0 are all hybrid weightlifting shoes that are popular with CrossFit athletes and those that want a lifting shoe capable of handling a variety of other movements—in addition to the snatch and the clean and jerk.

The Reebok CrossFit Power Lite TR's gripping full rubber outsole, hi-top stability and cushioning make it great for powerlifting moves like the squat, deadlift, and bench press.

Now that we’ve provided you an athletic shoe arsenal, what are you waiting for?

What Do Your Shoes Say About You? : Sandals by theshoemart on PolyvoreOlukai Men’s Ohana Leather / Marcoliani Milano Men’s Invisible Touch Stripes

Why do you need specific shoes for lifting weights?

Simply put, most running shoes are built to absorb impact when you run. Weightlifting, however, is all about the transfer of forces. 

When you are lifting weights, you want to utilize these forces to your benefit instead of having them absorbed into your shoe. The more force through the ground that you generate, the more weight you can lift.

Weightlifting shoes are designed to give you maximum contact with the ground. The raised heel also helps you to squat deeper by increasing the range of motion for your ankles. They are also designed to be more secure and stable than other shoes, so a proper fit is important as well.

If you are looking at weightlifting shoes and need help with fit, our customer service team would love to help you. You can contact them at ShoeMart@theshoemart.com or call (800) 850-7463 Monday through Saturday from 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM EST.
