“From Hankamer down the coast to Palacios, I found myself donning the 585 to accompany my feet on the many miles of these travels.”
“As an ecologist, storyteller and sporting gentlemen, I had the opportunity to bring the 585 along for a ride from the shores of California to the coast of New England.”
“I had never been able to find [a sneaker] that fit my outdoor lifestyle or assimilated into my wardrobe full of earth tones. These shoes did both, and will be a staple in my footwear for years to come.”
