Terrasoles "Après Anything" Footwear

Terrasoles “Après Anything” Footwear

I don’t actually know what “après anything” means, but with its new Terrasoles line of shoes R.G. Barry Corp. “targets the void many people face when transitioning from active footwear into something that is more comfortable and casual, yet remains functional.” Right. . . like when I get done climbing a mountain, remove my boots, and think “dang, if there wasn’t just a shoe perfect for this pub and the muddy lot I need to negotiate on my way inside. . . .”

Zinetic Pocket Slippers

Zinetic Pocket Slippers

“Boots off. Happy on.” That’s Zinetic Inc.’s slogan for its line of unisex pocket slippers for the outdoors. Kind of (somehow) sexy sounding I thought at first. But the product is fairly straight laced, just a flappy hard rubber sole and a meshy top. They’re made to wear in lieu of the heavy and clunky footwear often accompanying outdoors types to hostels, backcountry campsites, ski lodges, and yurts deep in the San Juans. . .
