My favorite look for fall: the new Dansko Evelyn! This boot is so comfortable and stylish. The concealed inside zipper is perfect for quick and easy on/off, and the neutral color will match my fall wardrobe perfectly. The arch support is really great, and will be perfect for all-day wear. Stop in and try a pair on for yourself!    Posted by: Emily B., Product Specialist, Omni Center Product Shown: Dansko Evelyn

  The Hoka One One Sky Toa is my go-to shoe for trails. This trail runner is extremely lightweight and has a remarkable amount of cushion. It is GORE-TEX waterproof so it’s perfect for wet, muddy trails. It’s durable, breathable, and has a Vibram Megagrip outsole.  The ankle height trail boot is perfect for stability on rough terrain.
