When it comes to footwear, I just might own a few more pairs of shoes than I need.
A handful, maybe.
Okay, two handfuls.
Fine, they're spread into multiple closets as well as under the bed. I can't help it!
My husband, on the other hand, is much more practical. Although there have been a few instances where he'll start browsing and I'll remind him that he already owns shoes similar to what he's looking at, mostly he sticks with being logical and rational and all that.
So when it comes to finding a pair of boots that he will be satisfied with, they have to meet his high standards for quality, durability and comfort as well as style. Fortunately, all of that can be found in the new Brigade Fold from Lugz.
Always a leader in footwear, Lugz first made a name for itself in 1993 and has continued to be an innovator in the footwear market with its signature styles. From those original boots to casual shoes to athletics for men, women and kids, Lugz is continually reinventing and taking its fashions to the next level.
Most recently, Lugz has released a new collection of boots to add to their selection of fashionable yet rugged footwear that is built for whatever street you reside. The new line, titled "The Elite Collection," features unique designs that emphasize the Lugz dedication to long-lasting durability and cushioned comfort. All are suitable for the workplace, yet stylish enough for the street, with attention given to detailed seams and industrial grommets.
When the Brigade Fold arrived, right away I was impressed with just how many features Lugz had included to make these great.
With a smooth suede outside and a lush fleece inside, the Brigade couldn't have arrived at a better time than when the temperatures around here have plummeted and the snow is a permanent sight. Who wants to do just about anything outside unless they can be assured that their feet are going to stay warm and toasty?
After running my hand along the Nubuck leather, I reached inside and was immediately jealous that my boots don't have such a soft fleece lining. Not only does it work perfectly with the cushioned insole, but the extra warmth and comfort is just the thing to pamper a man's foot - whether he spends all day standing or only 10 minutes at a time.
To ensure the outside of the Brigade is as nice as the inside, the durable rubber outsole is extremely thick and I appreciate that it provides support as well as good traction for when my husband is out on the snow and ice.
From the overall look and feel to the quality and detailing that is apparent in the Brigade Fold, Lugz has designed these boots so that they are versatile as well as long-lasting. From the secure stitching to the padded tongue to the grommets on the laces...
...these top-of-the-line boots are great for men everywhere. Available in Wheat, Charcoal and Black color options, the adjustable, fold-down collar makes it possible to customize these to fit a multitude of wardrobes.
Retailing for $99.99, the Brigade Fold (as well as the other boots in "The Elite Collection") are built to last out of quality materials and sturdy craftsmanship... and are able to just keep feet feeling great all day!
