Florida is one of those places where there is always something new to discover, you just have to turn down the right street or, sometimes, the wrong one. A jaunty new restaurant, a historic landmark, or a coastal hideout that you never knew existed, all just waiting to be happened upon. I tend to deal with this opportunistically, having beach wear and workout gear in my car at all times, as well as a collared shirt and blazer for the occasion that calls for more refined garb. This strategy has helped me experience a great deal of my hometown, but I have taken it upon myself this summer to expand my horizons beyond the reaches of Palm Beach and to really explore what the rest Florida has to offer.
St. Petersburg seemed like a good place to start; it's small-town feel makes it homey, but there always seem to be something new to see and do when I visit. And though it may seem contrary to the Florida Lifestyle, a good pair of boots are usually the most versatile footwear option to go with. That is where the Abe Boot from CAT Footwear comes in, with its refined looks and rugged construction, these boots go the extra mile for me. They can handle urban landscape just as easily as rugged back country, and look amazing through it all thanks to its classic silhouette and lightweight construction. The military visage pays homage to mid-century fatigue style, but has been refined and streamlined to bring into the 21st Century. And with the EASE Insole technology, I am able to go miles and miles in them without felling like my feet are going to fall off.
Be Dapper. Be Different.
