The Best Shoes for Summer Adventures
Living in Northern Michigan on the shore of Lake Michigan and amongst some of the greatest views of the country, this means you have more shoes to adventure in than anything else. You never know when the day will call for a dune hike that ends on a rocky or sandy shore and a dip in the lake that then leads to an evening bonfire. It is the way of life here and the kind of life we love. In fact, I usually feel most comfortable in shoes that can go from bike ride to river wander to dune climb to dinner at our favorite restaurant. So, I gathered up a collection of shoes that will help you deeply enjoy any and all adventures that may or may not be planned this summer. My suggestion, keep these ones in the car because I think it is best to always live with the mentality that you never know the adventures the day may bring.
