Summer Fun with Footwear | FN PLATFORM

Posted at 4:38 AM

Summer is all about pool parties, backyard BBQ's, and socializing outdoors no matter what you're doing. All that summer fun, however, also means you're going to be constently on your feet and on the go, so some serious comfort is in order.

What better way to keep you on the move than a pair of kicks that contain the two most important characterisitcs a summertime shoe requires: style and comfort. Check out some footwear brands from FN PLATFORM that are meant for summer below and pick up something new from them at the August show.



Drawing from the state's long-standing tradition of handsewn footwear, the Eastland brand is known for its Americana heritage-inspired style that reflects their Maine roots and long-standing traditional shoemaking principles. The collections at Eastland 1955 offer styles for the modern men who appreciate the New England classic attitude, long-lasting quality and great value in their casual footwear. Full-grain leathers, handcrafted detail, durable soles and exceptonal comfort are built into every pair. 




Naot, an idea that originated in northern Israel in the late nineteen-eighties, "It's fashionable to walk in comfort", quickly conquered the world. Naot manufactures a large variety of footwear with a unique anatomical footbed. The footbed is a negative print of the foot, just like the footprint we leave when walking in the sand. It is flexible, soft, shock absorbent, supports the heel and alleviates fatigue and pain. The footbeds are made of natural cork and latex and are covered in a pampering layer of suede, and the uppers are made of high quality italian leather.




Since 1928, Cole Haan has been making good, goods, and nothing but good goods. Today, they create the shoes, bags and finishing touches for people who are ingenuous, resourceful, and want to make a difference. The Cole Haan intrepid tribe manages to look good whether at work or play, and believes a sense of style and a sense of humor are perfect complements.
