For the Dad Who Loves Hiking

Hiking is a fun and active pastime that millions of people enjoy every day. It can include long, vigorous walks up a mountain trail or along footpaths on a nature trail. For the dad who loves to explore the highest of mountains, the right shoes are just as important as a bottle of water.

Cloud Plus Waterproof

The Cloud Plus is an outdoor boot that can handle anything you throw at it. It's a great choice for hiking dads. The waterproof upper will keep your feet dry which makes it ideal for long hikes in wet weather. The lightweight cushioned midsole and flexible outsole make these boots comfortable enough for long days on the trail. They'll ensure your feet feel well-supported on uneven surfaces.

If that isn't enough, you'll love the low cut of this shoe as well. It will allow you to easily slip them on and off without having to struggle with zippers or laces every time you want to take them off.

Since it’s summertime, you may have a father who enjoys the beach. Beach days are a great way to enjoy the summer. Whether that’s diving into the cool water or searching for treasure along the shore. The beach does come with lots of sand and the hazard of broken sea shells though. So give Dad a shoe that is right for finding the perfect beach spot.

Birkenstock Arizona

Our shoe of the month, the Birkenstock Arizona is the classic sandal. If your dad is the type of guy who enjoys the beach and doesn't mind getting his feet wet, then we recommend the Arizona. This sandal, with its durable sole, is great for warm weather. It’s easy to slip off to go swimming in the waves and quick to remove sand from when your beach trips are over.

If you have a dad with foot pain, these are also really good choices because they have arch support that helps distribute weight evenly across all parts of your foot. And don’t forget their two adjustable straps to help ensure the right fit. Another great feature is the materials the Birkenstock Arizona are made from. Made with leather and suede, you know they’ll last for years to come! If you want a more water-resistant version be sure to also try the Birkenstock Arizona Essentials.

Why not buy yourself and Dad a pair to match? Be sure to also add a cork sealer to your purchase. All month long, when you buy any two pairs of Birkenstocks, you’ll receive a free cork sealer. Some restrictions apply. Offer valid through June 30, 2023.

For Any Kind of Dad
