The Urban category encompasses Helly Hansen shoes and boots that were made to be comfy, fashionable, and fit to be worn to work, out on the town, to the ballgame, or where ever life takes you.
A great example of a casual shoe would be the Helly Hansen ELG boots
. These shoes are mid-cut, with soft and smooth fleece insulation. There are no laces, so obviously this is going to be a casual boot, and the leather outsole feels like microsuede and its just a nice shoe.
Key features of an Urban shoe:
- Fashionable: First and foremost, shoes in this category were meant to be the shoe you wear around the city. They should look good with casual attire and be fashion over function.
- Comfortable: Since we won't be scaling Everest in an Urban boot, they should be comfortable right? Many shoes in this category do not even have laces so they can be slipped on and off with ease.
- Durable: It is obvious that the snow boots and the hiking boots are going to be durable, but the urban shoes also have a noticeable dedication to durability. And seeing as how these shoes will be the ones you wear most often, it makes sense.
