There’s just something about hot, wet, sticky feet that isn’t too appealing to me. So you can see why I’m less than a fan of wearing rainboots during the warm summer months. However, the idea of wearing any other sort of footwear throughout the grimy, rain-soaked streets of New York is unheard of – that is, until Teva’s Fuse-Ion for women.
Upon first glance, these “adventure shoes” remind you of the fashions of old school Converse, Keds or Vans sneakers. But when you look a little closer, you’ll notice there’s a little more to these performance shoes that meets the eye. Teva’s Fuse-Ion technology boasts a waterproof, fashionable shoe with a slip-resistant sole that makes running in the rain a breeze!
Recently, I put these kicks to the test – ripping and running throughout the streets of NYC during Wednesday’s rainstorm…
As you can see, the Teva Fuse-Ion’s made it easy for me to maneuver throughout the wet and rainy city, while staying dry.
Check out this video for more on the technology behind the Ion Fusion…

From steep wet pavement, to stairs, to subway stations and more! The Teva Fuse-Ion shoes aren’t just adventure shoes for hiking in the wilds of Mother Nature, they’re also necessary for comfortable navigation through the concrete jungles of NYC.

Okay East Coasters, by now you’ve heard from President Obama and your local government authorities about the impending damage that Irene is bringing your way, now it’s time to react.
Do you have a “Go Bag”?
Create your ‘Go Bag’ and Emergency Supply Kit
A “Go Bag” is a collection of items you may need in case of an emergency evacuation. Every person in the house should have a “Go Bag” stocked and readily accessible in case you have to leave your home or office in a hurry. Your best option for the bag itself is a backpack, which leaved hands free so you can carry a flashlight, a cell phone, or hold the hand of a loved one. A backpack on wheels or a rolling suitcase is a good alternative.
In wake of any impending disaster or in this case Hurrican Irene, here’s your must have list of items & gadgets to have packed in your emergency supply kit.
Your “Go Bag” should contain:
- Copies of your important documents in a waterproof Ziploc bags. Insurance cards, ID, proof of address, special family photos.
- Extra house and car keys
- Credit and ATM cards
- Cash. Carry about $50 to $100 in small denominations (just in case).
- Bottled water and nonperishable food. Energy and granola bars are good options.
- At least one flashlight and extra batteries. (LED flashlights are more durable and last 10 times longer than traditional ones.)
- A manual radio or battery-operated radio. Manual radios often have cell phone charging features, solar power options, flashlight, siren and compass.
