Take it to the Trail & Beyond with adidas Outdoor Terrex Boost

When you take your running routine off the beaten path and into more rugged terrain, three things are of the utmost importance when it comes to trail running shoes: lightweight comfort, great support and fit. The adidas® Outdoor Terrex Boost covers all those bases and more.

Whether it’s trail running, mountain running or other off-trail adventures, the adidas® Outdoor Terrex Boost delivers all the comfort you’d come to expect from a great running shoe, but also focuses on durability. When you’re tackling rough trails, a durable trail running shoe makes sure you get the most mileage.

Of course, all that durability would mean nothing without the proper support. The Terrex Boost features a lightweight boost™ midsole that provides great energy return with every stride. The PRO MODERATOR™ support also stabilizes as the rugged rubber outsole provides excellent traction on slick surfaces. And let’s not forget about fit. Its stretchy mesh upper and stable heel ensures a snug yet comfortable fit to keep every off-trail session more enjoyable.

Rock Some Spring Denim!

The best thing about denim is that you’re always wrapped in comfort and confidence, day or night. Great jeans really do highlight our best assets -- from a great seat to strong legs, and everything in between. 

A great-fitting pair of jeans can be paired in an astounding number of ways -- dressed up with a great jacket, purse, heels and accessories, or dressed down with classic Chuck Taylors and a comfortable cotton tee. Denim capris or shorts can be pulled on over a bathing suit at the end of a day at the beach, or worn on days when you’re just zipping around town running errands.   

Denim in various washes and cuts can be rocked at every time of the year, and I’m so excited to share with you a great selection of plus size denim, from shorts to skirts to pants, that will carry you from spring through the summer. I hope you are as inspired as we are to experiment and rock denim in lots of stylish ways this warm-weather season!

Menswear Monday: Spring Footwear Guide

When it comes to the world of men’s shoes, it really is an exciting time to be a guy. Not that I have experience in it firsthand, but I definitely believe that a well-dressed man isn't complete without the perfect pair of shoes, am I right? There are lots of awesome footwear options this spring for guys to put on heavy rotation—from sandals to sneakers; we’re seeing lots of old favorites making a triumphant comeback in stylish new ways!

Below is our shortlist of top styles to note this spring for men’s footwear—straight from the runways to real life. There’s really something for every guy. There’s the laidback fisherman sandal, which by the way, is one throwback style that’s making a very unexpected but welome return.

There’s also a huge focus on retro-style sneakers from New Balance, Nike and other classic athletic brands. These aren’t just for the gym or running errands, gents. On the contrary, the most stylish guys are wearing them with everything from chinos and a blazer to even mixing things up by rocking them with their corporate business suits! They sure make those morning commutes a lot more comfortable.

If you’re less on-the-go dude and more beach-bum material this spring and summer, you’ll love the leather slides that are popping up all over the place, particularly in leather. Birkenstock sandals, anyone?

For the more preppy gentlemen out there, there’s something for you, too. The moccasin loafer is a great option for a more laidback addition to your chinos and other office staples. Who knew your dad’s favorite shoe would be deemed as one of the season’s most on-trend men’s shoe must haves? Fashion really has a cyclical nature, doesn’t it?

Check out a few of our favorites in men’s spring footwear below:

Zapponian Spotlight: Michelle R. Gives the Rundown on Rain Boots

Spring has sprung, and once the sky starts to leak, the shoe closet has a way of looking a little bare. Be ready for cloud bursts of any sort with a reliable pair of rain boots. A good quality pair of rain boots will not only last season to season, they can be surprisingly versatile and stylish!

Consider pairing a back-strap rain boot with a printed-dress and jacket combo for festival season. The practicality of a cute rain boot will help keep your feet dancing, rain or shine – not to mention lend a uniquely casual look. 

Thinking of picking up gardening? Rubber garden boots come in shorter lengths for added mobility when reaching to prune those perfect posies. If the great outdoors lights your fire, you can relax in the wilderness or on a fishing boat in a rugged pair of waterproof boots.

If you’re up a creek without a paddle when it comes to styling rain boots, Zappos’ very own style editor, Michelle Robles is here to take us all to school. After six years of wowing everyone around the office with her undeniably chic taste, Michelle has agreed to share her own rainy-day fashion tips as well as some great rain boot picks to get you through any rainy day in style:

What inspires your personal style?

M: I’m influenced by street style, Pinterest, bloggers, and different cultures.

 

What is an ultimate essential to your own inclement-weather wardrobe? 

M: My classic Hunter Original boots – these never go out of style!

 

How do you build a practical and stylish outfit around rain boots?

M: Leggings or skinny jeans are my go-to picks. My personal favorite is wearing skinny jeans, a striped tee and a utility jacket for a relaxed-cool look.

 

What is one fashion faux pas that makes you go “Eew!”?

M: Wrinkled clothing.  Steaming your clothes can take you from sloppy to polished in an instant. Ironing is not my thing, but steaming is a breeze. I can’t live without my steamer and travel steamer!
