Outdoor shoes are made to handle all conditions you might think of, these outdoor shoes differ in style, some are hiking shoes, running shoes, home outdoor shoes like clogs, hiking boots, hunter boots, outdoor walking shoes, slippers and sandals.

Most of these shoes are durable because they are made to withstand the hash outdoor conditions. You can wear most of these outdoor shoes with most casual trends, but most of them have a special purpose, so you will not look fashionable if you wear a running shoe / hiking shoe with jeans.


Hiking requires lots of energy, so you need to wear light clothes like cargo shorts or cargo pants, jeans tend to be heavy and hot, so you will not feel free. Then running shoes are basically meant for running or exercising, so you can’t complement them with normal casual trends.
