Geox Breathable Shoes

There's a reason flip-flops are so popular in the summer, but wearingthem isn't always socially acceptable, so we're forced to puton shoes and confine our feet to sweaty prisons. Geox,an Italian shoe brand popular in Europe, has a solution: shoes withperforated soles, letting your feet breathe while you walk. A high-techmembrane on the inside makes sure any water from the outside doesn'tget in, even while allowing sweat to trickle away. The company makesall kinds of footwear - from sneakers to moccasins - with the price ofa pair averaging around $110, and is hoping to replicate its successacross the pond with a big push here in North America. Geox may not bethe best thing to wear during those long winter walks, and you canforget about ever taking them to a shoe-repair place, but for thosegarden parties where sandals won't cut it, they should keep your feetcool with some style.
