Hi Tec Socks

"I have a full drawer of socks, but I decided I needed to try the Hi-Tec Women's Performance Hiking Crew Socks and I am glad I did. They fit so well and stay in place in my hiking shoes." said one reviewer.
The first time I had them on I walked about 7 miles on the trail and my feet were not hurting at all. I am definitely recommending these socks." -Amazon Customer Review. We like these socks because of the designs, it's high time we took a little fashion responsibility and wore nice looking socks!" At GoNOMAD, we like these socks because we have so many pairs of black socks and white socks, but none as colorful as these. It's about time we were a bit more creative about what we cover our feet with!
Giesswein Wool Indoor/Outdoor slip-ons
There's something about wearing slippers outside that is appealing. These are sturdy, high-quality wool slip-ons that work as indoor slippers or regular shoes. The women's Bella model has a nice embroidered pattern and comes in charcoal or purple. Ever since I began wearing slip on regular shoes, I just can't be bothered to tie 'em so I love anything that I can slip on like these. And they really stay on your feet, they don't slip off.
Very high arch makes these especially comfortable. Giesswein Women's Bella Purple Slipper, $60.99. Men's are the Innsbruck Lodge shoes, in Charcoal. $158
One Tribe Apparel
Get your hippy groove on with some hand stitched harem pants made in Thailand. With over 50 beautiful prints to choose from, the only difficult decision you'll be making this summer is deciding which pair to buy for your festival outing!
Not only are these pants just plain old fun to look at, and show off, One Tribe Apparel is donating $1 to the Elephant Nature Park with every item sold!
Talk about fashion with a purpose! Boho Harem Pants $28
"The harem pants are very soft and comfortable. They look great, and I plan to collect as many pairs as possible! I highly recommend these pants to anyone who wants to look and feel great!" -Verified Buyer Review.
Not a pants person? One Tribe Apparel also shorts, tops, bags, and more! We had the chance to test out a pair of their denim shorts, which were anything but ordinary.
Each pair has intricate design embroidered into the right side of the shorts, creating a unique take on the typical demin look. The comfortable fit allows for versatility, whether you are walking the streets of the city or sitting in the back woods, these pants are the perfect way to make a statement this summer.

"I have a ton of jean shorts, but I have yet to find a pair with such a unique design, perfect way to make an impression and donate to a good cause while you're at it." -Review by Olivia Gilmore, GoNOMAD Editorial Assistant.
Grief Straw Lifeguard Hat From Chaos Hats
A great hat does not only incorporate comfort, but also style. Chaos Hats does the job in making a paper straw hat that can be worn to the beach, fishing, concerts, and pretty much anywhere else. The hat comes in two different colors, either olive or true blue, and one size fits all.
What I like best about this hat is that it is unisex, so if you buy one, your significant and you can both wear it!
Just in time for Festival Season in New England.
Just try not to fight over it. Grief Straw Lifeguard Hat $24.99
For all the ladies out there, if you're looking for more of a feminine looking hat, then the Sai Straw Brim Panama $29.99 Chaos Hat should be on your must-buy list this summer. The 100% paper straw,
The 100% paper straw, the wide brimmed hat comes in three different colors, silex gray, beige, and natural. After receiving the natural colored one in the mail, I am very pleased to say that although made of straw, it has a soft texture that fits nice and snug on my head!
