Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

Adorable and Afforable (1)

Finding adorable and affordable shoes for your closet can be a pain. Especially in the summer time because we all know flip flops are not exactly known for their supportive soles. Here at Glik’s we actually have a large selection of shoes that will support your feet and your wallet. cc

City Classified Shoes | $29

 City Classified Shoes Comfort Andro Wedge Heels in Tan were made for your busy lifestyle.  They look like your classic micro wedge heel, but really they are jam packed with comfort. With a lined and padded footbed and a soft foam padding you’ll be able to wear these shoes all day!

Sperry Top Sider | $60

I love Espadrilles. Love them. But typically they have little to no sole or cushioning. This is where Sperry saves the day. Almost all their shoes have a memory foam footbed, ya know the stuff that people make mattresses out of? Yeah, these shoes are so comfy you could basically sleep on them.

Mia Shoes | $30

The Mia Shoes Lynn Strappy Sandals in Black and in Cognac are such a treat for a pair of strappy sandals. These gladiator style shoes have a super padded rubber outsole and footbed. Cute and actually a wearable sandal?! Get one in both colors, because these are going to be your summer staple.

Adorable and Afforable

Sanuk Yoga Sandals | $38

Okay, these shoes are kind of a no brainer with a name with the word yoga in it. You can also get these fun knitted sling style uppers in so many styles or colors. The footbed is made out of yoga mats, so you can definitely skip the yoga class, and get your Namaste on with the Sanuk Yoga Sandals.

3

Qupid Shoes | $20

Qupid shoes are great for their comfortability factor, since they all have a lightly cushioned footbed and a low price point. But my favorite Qupid Shoes lately are the Comfy Banded Slides that come in Carmel, Black, and White. These Comfy shoes are an ideal summer footwear option, they give you that simple sandal silhouette with a comfortable footbed.

With this selection of shoes at Glik’s you can have comfortable, trendy shoe styles without breaking your budget. For more styling tips and ideas be sure to check out Gliks’ Instagram! Happy shopping ya’ll!

Look Ahead: Mens Trends for Spring 2015

Let’s take a look ahead to upcoming mens trends for Spring 2015.

Americana

Americana seems to be a reoccurring trend pulling from past generations of the hard working American man with a love for his country.

1897 flat front shorts sperry for menTo wear this trend, red, white and blue colorways are essential. Even if you vary the shades (as shown below with Marsala, khaki and dusk blue) the impression of Americana still resonates. Stars and stripes not necessary.

Prep and Nautical

Both Prep and Nautical trends will be seen this Spring.

vineyard vines polos
photo cred: pinterest

Brands including Vineyard Vines, Southern Shirt Company, 1897 and Sperry Top Sider will be leading this trend in menswear at Glik’s. The Preppy look isn’t just long sleeve pastel pullovers or gingham button-downs paired with flat front khaki shorts and Sperry Top-Siders. This trend has expanded to include patriotic graphic tees (Rowdy Gentleman) worn with chinos and Vans.

Both styles are clean-cut with an emphasis of a preppy lifestyle.  Watch for plaid button downs or polo shirts with bright pops of color in red or mint.

And as the Nautical trend sets sail, it’s going to find its home within the Preppy lifestyle. So be on the lookout for anchors and stripes (particularly navy and white) within this trend. But don’t be afraid to think outside the yacht, Hawaiian printed shirts, cardigans and blazers are a fun way to switch things up a bit.

Activewear

Fitness is booming right now, so it should come as no surprise that activewear has become huge in the fashion industry.

Tech tees from Under Armour, Fox, or Nike, paired with joggers and sneaks can be worn any and everywhere–not just to the gym. No fellas, activewear isn’t just for leg days anymore.

Must-have accessories to beat the heat

Shades and croakies are for the active man. Whether it be a round of golf with the boys or a game of volleyball at the beach, you won’t lose your cool with these accessories.

After your fun in the sun, fire up the grill and crack open some cold ones with a koozie in hand and, of course, a beeracuda to keep those brews ice-cold.

Glik’s 1897 Club Shorts Men’s Style Blog | Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Just like women, every dad’s style is different. Whether he is the average guy that loves the basics or the more style-conscious, we all love the men that are our childhood superheroes. As women, we love to not only dress ourselves, but also dress and style the special men in our lives. And they love it, because let’s face it–that’s one less thing they have to worry about. We put together four different Dad style ideas all featuring our Glik’s exclusive 1897 Club Shorts as a tribute to Father’s Day this year.

The Trendy and Confident Dad

Navy club shorts

The more style-conscious Dad will love our salute to the nautical trend this year. Navy is the new khaki and it is easy for any man to coordinate. Complete with an anchor-printed woven button-down shirt, Men’s Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes, and our in-house 1897 Navy Flat Front Club Shorts, this Dad will look put together and confident for any occasion.

The Fun and Outgoing Dad

mint club shorts

Perfect for the fun and energetic Dad, we have an animated outfit that will let his outgoing personality shine. Complete with a multi-colored plaid button down woven, 1897 graphic tee, 1897 Mint Flat Front Club Shorts, and comfortable red canvas Men’s Sperry Top-Siders, this Dad will look fun and clever this Father’s Day.

The Casual and Active Dad

Khaki club shorts

Probably the most common Dad out there is the Casual Dad. He likes to wear practical and comfortable clothes for all occasions. Usually more active and in need of performance material, this ensemble is perfect for the everyday basic Dad. We paired our 1897 Tobacco Flat Front Club Shorts with an Under Armour Golf Polo, Hat, and Crevo sandals for a perfect Father’s Day outfit to spend the day out with family or manning the grill.

The Southern and Gentlemanly Dad

Salmon club shorts

One of the best styles of the summer is Southern Prep-inspired, but don’t let that keep you from checking out our Southern look for your charming Dad. Perfect for the well-dressed Dad that needs a day out of the office, he will be dashing in our layered plaid woven shirt when paired with our 1897 Salmon Flat Front Club Shorts and brown leather Men’s Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes.

Glik’s Boutique Concept Store Opens in Holland, Michigan

Glik's Boutique in Holland, MI

This past Friday, May 2, 2014 marked the opening of Glik’s boutique, our first-ever women’s boutique, located at 37 East 8th Street in beautiful Holland, Michigan. While Glik’s had opened a store in Holland a year and a half prior that carried both men’s and women’s apparel, the inspiration for Glik’s Boutique came after the Holland customers requested more women’s fashion. While maxed out in space in our then current location, the opportunity arose to form both a Men’s Shop and a Women’s Boutique.

So at 10:00 am Friday morning, we cut the ribbon for the Grand Opening of Glik’s Boutique while just moments before we had celebrated the opening of the Glik’s Men’s Shop. And that wasn’t the only event being celebrated in Holland that morning.

Friday kicked off the 85th annual Tulip Time Festival in Holland, where there are around 6 million tulips planted and ready to soak up the springtime sun. Mr. Glik, pictured above, was in attendance along with owners and chief merchants Jeff and Jim Glik.

It takes a lot of time, effort, and talent to open a new store. We could not have made opening two incredible stores possible without all the hard work from our amazing employees. All elements of preparation are necessary for a successful store opening. Everything from painting the interiors to prepping the merchandise for customers is important.

Put a Little Prep in Your Step: Sperry Top-Sider Shoes

Don’t know the port from the starboard?  Good news! Here at Glik’s we can show you the ropes to the fun and preppy nautical trend.

Glik’s Nautical Guide for the Landlocked: Sperry Top-Sider Shoes

sperryblogtrio

Favorited by many, these non-slip boating shoes were born in 1935 to Paul Sperry when he carved grooves in a gum rubber sole after watching his dog race effortlessly across the ice. His passion drove him to success and Sperry became famous to sailors, military and civilian alike.

Fast-forwarding to present, Sperry Top-Sider has combined their technical attributes with a fashion forward mindset, creating  casual and stylish footwear for everyone. We are excited to show you three of our new spring 2014 arrivals that just hit www.gliks.com.

Stripes and white denim are huge Nautical fashion trends.

Stripes are an important key to styling out your nautical look. Whether you decide to embrace this trend in a big way, or choose to be subtle, this Made in the USA striped tank by Mind Code is perfect paired with these high-waisted white cut-off shorts. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with your favorite Pink Pewter headband and a pair of bottle-opener sunglasses. Completing this “fun in the sun” ensemble is a donut infinity scarf and our new Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Angelfish Boat Shoe in Navy/Serape.

Mesh and Red, White, and Blue are ways you can add to your Nautical inspired look.

Perhaps one of the more understated nautical inspired fashions that we LOVE to see are mesh knits! These are fun to style with your favorite colored tank or cami, creating a different look each time. Red, white, and blue are fundamental colors found in nautical inspired fashions, so we paired this fun top with Americana shorts and sunnies. We add some more stripes to the look with our popular scrunched striped infinity scarf and Sperry’s Angelfish shoes in Red/Bretton. Don’t forget to add bracelets and other accessories to kick it up a notch!

Scrunched Stripe Infinity Scarf Available in 4 amazing colors!

Layered wovens and cardigans or sweaters are a perfect way to add a preppy spin on your Nautical look.

If you really want to unleash your preppy side, we recommend layering wovens under a knitted cardigan or sweater, which is perfect for the chilly breeze that can sail its way into your sun-filled day. This Roar button-down shirt is multi-functional, showing us that layering can be fun and quirky with this Volcom flamingo sweater. Prep it up some more by throwing on your favorite Flying Monkey Jeans and cuffing the bottoms to show off the stripes on your Sperry Top-Sider Angelfish boat shoes. Completing this outfit are anchor accessories and astute to boot glasses.

New Sperry Top-Sider Angelfish Spring 2014 Arrivals

So what if you can’t man the helm of a vessel (bully for you if you can), but with these inspirations from Sperry Top-Sider’s footwear, you can successfully channel your inner nautical fashionista.
