Great Shoes for the Wanderer, Teva Mens Riva Leather Event

I know footwear pretty well.  I spent over 24 years as an Infantry Marine hiking with heavy loads on my back in just about every “clime and place.”  Good quality footwear for the Traveler, Adventurer or Wanderer is a must!  After I find, and wear a great pair of footwear till it’s about worn to pieces,  I usually say, “I should have bought two pairs, because now that model is discontinued…”  Before “Teva” discontinues the “Mens Riva Leather Event” model shoes, I will try to buy another pair.  The Riva Leather Event shoes are really, really comfortable and very well made!  I think at $140.00 (REI price) they are some of the most expensive footwear I have ever purchased (excluding “Gore Tex” Boots), but I am completely satisfied with them!  I recently looked at the “Teva” website and they apparently only have them in “bouillon” or (brown) now, but the pair I bought at REI are green and black (see picture below).

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
