New Arrivals: Camper for Men

Hey Fellas!

You saw it here first: new arrivals from Camper are now in Sole Food! New fall styles have arrived and they are stupendous. Camper Footwear is one of our most popular lines of footwear we carry for men. If you are looking for a very well crafted, unique but classic look in your shoes, Camper may be your calling.

[Pelotas Ariel Shoe, Grey Leather]
One of Camper's original styles, the Pelotas shoe is a fun sneaker that features soft leather uppers, cushy rubber soles and attracting color palettes. Although Camper calls this a grey leather, it looks more like black. The vintage-inspired look is unique to Camper and this shoe is one of their most comfortable walking shoes available.

[Brothers Impala Shoe, Blue Suede]
Oh boy, this shoe is amazing. Camper took the traditional look of the casual oxford and redesigned it for the 21st century. With super soft suede uppers, leather inners and a cushioned insole, the Brothers Impala provides a distinctive look with ultimate comfort.

[Brothers Impala High-Top Shoe, Brown Suede]
Just like its brother above, this high-top version is comfortable and stylish. Featured here is the brown suede version, perfect for casual encounters and more. We also have a black leather version, perfect for the working man on his feet all day, or for those who need a more dressier look.

[Peu Cami Hi-Top Shoe]
The Peu is another classic Camper style. When you walk down the city streets in these, people will look and think "He's wearing Campers! Nice!" These leather sneakers features a soft rubber sole and a fun elastic no need to tie them--just slip them on and go! We have the hi-top versions, as well as the original Peu sneaker below.

[Peu Cami Shoe]
Sole Food has the Peu Cami shoe in Black leather too!

So that's them! They just arrived, so come in soon for the best selection, because they will sell quick. Hope you enjoyed reading, and we will see you soon!

Back to School!

It's almost time for school to start back up again, and you know what that means...time for new shoes! New styles for kids of all ages are arriving almost every day. Here are a few of our favorites from Keen, Camper, Morgan & Milo, and Primigi.

Keen Coronado High Top (infant size 4-youth size 4)

Keen has taken their popular Coronado sneaker and turned it into an awesome high top! These shoes are comfortable and durable, and the non-marking natural rubber outsoles are perfect for school.

Camper Peu Shoe and Ankle Boot (size 26-34/US 9-2)

Camper really takes the cake when it comes to making stylish shoes for kids, and these are no exception! Super soft leather and ergonomic lasts ensure all day comfort, while the side zippers make them easy to take on and off.

Morgan & Milo-from left to right: Sequin MJ (size 7.5-13), Ginger Floral (size 7.5-13), Avery H&L (size 7-12), Woodstock Lace (size 6-12)

Morgan & Milo is a relatively new footwear company (established in 2003), but they have quickly become a favorite of parents looking for high quality shoes at a great price point. From sporty sneakers to sparkly maryjanes, Morgan and Milo has it all (and in half sizes)!

Primigi-from left to right: Jenny-E Boot (waterproof!) in size 28-38/US 10.5-6, Jenna Patent (size 24-35/US 8-3), Livia Boot (size 24-35/US 8-3), Jessie Boot (size 28-34/US 10.5-2)

Primigi has been crafting children's shoes with distinct Italian style for over 30 years. Their boots are perfect for fall and winter, and come in supple leathers, pretty patents, and waterproof GORE-TEX.

These are just a few of the great new styles we have for back to school... there are plenty more in-store! Come on in and we'll help you find the perfect pair to start the school year off right!

New Arrivals! | Gabor

I know what you are thinking. "BOOTS? In August? But it's hot out!"
Believe it or not, boots are already here at Sole Food. It's a good time to act fast and pick out your favorite pair while they are still here!

I know what else you might be thinking. "I can't wear boots. My calves are too big."
This is a negative that is found in some boots...not enough versatility in the shaft widths so that the boots can fit a number of different leg sizes.

[Check out my little video...I go through some new Gabor boots and show you what's awesome!]

Well be sad no more! Gabor from Germany knows this plight of boots and has been a master of feet and shoes for a long time. Established in 1949, Gabor has been designing shoes and boots that feature many different options for the many different feet in the world. Gabor offers larger sizes, many widths and innovative footbeds that provide maximum comfort for you. All Gabor boots are produced in Europe, which guarantees highest quality and materials.

Back by popular demand, these boots will fit you like a glove. Featured here we have three tall boots, all with adjustable shaft-widths. Whether you have the large calf or the skinny one, these boots feature a buckle system that can loosen or tighten as needed. Another way to look at it is that you can wear these boots with pants tucked in, over the boot, or with leggings, tights, thinner socks, thick socks...the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for reading, Sole Foodies!
