and the best shoe discounts for our heroes this Veteran’s Day
First, thank you to our veterans today! Their devotion to our safety and freedom is admirable and deeply appreciated. Fashion intermingles with societal trends, and let’s pay homage to our protectors of peace and talk about combat boots.
Tears of pride come easy being proud and thankful of our veterans and service members in particular my daughter! Camo print is definitely still in style so the combat boot trend makes perfect sense. After four years of inspecting and advising on athletic shoes and military combat boots, here’s my laugh. This is in fact the text my military girl sent with the caption Lollllll 1,125$ earlier this fall:
I admit, seeing there’s only one Versace combat boot left in stock, and it’s my size is totally intriguing. Don’t you love that high fashion can, on occasion, be practical? The idea of $1K + combat boots flying off shelves does makes me chuckle.
From a shoe blogger podiatrist perspective, combat boots are an excellent choice for all day comfort with solid foot and ankle support. Having secure control of lacing patterns, a rugged outsole and shock absorbing midsole brings athletic shoe comfort and hiking boot wearability under foot. For people healing posterior tibial tendon issues, a combat or hiking boot is typically suggested as part of conservative medical treatment. What’s also great is typically the combination of nylon, leather, and Gore-tex fabrics which are lightweight and breathable. For the most part, most combat boots are comfortable and provide great foot protection, but unfortunately many lack the important feature of an adequate arch support. As a result, I always suggest the addition of your own orthotic or Superfeet.Shop Superfeet Here!
I don’t own the Vionic Women’s Charm Lani Casual Combat Boot..yet, but I want to! You are pretty much guaranteed high comfort in the Vionic foot bed, and the patent leather is beautiful.
