A good pair of shoes is a good gift for anyone (for almost any occasion).
Father's Day is no exception. Unlike a tie or a Dad-themed t-shirt, he'll wear a new pair of shoes...often and gladly.
New shoes - especially fitness shoes - are a great investment for his wardrobe...and his health.
For the Runner: Consider Mizuno's Wave Ascend 4 ($89.99).
These black and silver running-shoes trimmed with bright orange are sure to be noticed on the track or around the neighborhood. They're slick and stylish and scream athleticism. More importantly than the "looks," however, these shoes deliver the goods in terms of comfort and support. They'll offer him excellent cushioning for cruising in races - against his peers or against himself. Tim says they have a super secure grip and they're great for running across rocky terrain.
For the Hiker: Consider Teva's Reva Leather Mid eVent Boot ($150).
Both rugged and sophisticated, these boots are the ultimate gift choice for any man who appreciates the outdoors. Tim immediately noticed that they're exceptionally lightweight (like wearing a tennis shoe!) and offer superior breathability, without losing sturdiness or letting in water. He'll use these in the heat of the summer, through the fall, and into the first snows of winter. Side Note: Tim says they run a bit small so you may want to consider ordering a half-size up.
