Three Casual Shoulder Season Shoes

Winter is waning, but summer is not here yet. Keep mud season muck at bay without cooking your feet with new weather resistant shoes and boots from manufacturers you already know and love.


Blundstone Stout: Blundstone has been making sturdy and unique boots since 1870. This season, the brand introduces their first shoe, a short version of your favorite boots. The Stout uses premium leather upper, stretchy side panels, and goat leather lining with a top stitch durable rubber sole. Available Fall 2012 in leather or suede, $130,


Sanuk Enduro: For sidewalk surfing when there might be some sprinkles from the clouds overhead, or when the temps are just a little too cool for a single layer of canvas, Sanuk made the Enduro. The sturdy lugged sole doesn't interfere with Sanuk's sandal like feel, and unless you're standing in a puddle, they'll keep your feet dry. Available August 2012, $110,


Chaco Holt: This suede and canvas shoe is part city slicker, part skate punk. The Holt has Chaco'ssignature molded footbed, but without the thick and heavy sole. They're spry and weather resistant. Spice em up with by swapping in the included colored laces. $110, available August 2012,
