New hiking boots for Utah trails are at Smith & Edwards

New Boots for Hiking the Bonneville Shoreline

- posted by Rose Marion

This spring, I went up to the Rainbow Gardens parking lot, and instead of taking Birdsong Trail like usual, my boyfriend and I hiked up to the Bonneville Shoreline trail!

It was breathtaking getting to see behind the water pipe that goes over 12th street as it heads up to Ogden Canyon, and we got to meet some fun dogs and watch as people made their way further up the mountains above us.


If you're looking to hike or camp in the Uintas or Northern Utah this spring & summer, make sure & check out our HUGE selection of energy bars & meals, hiking packs, hydration packs, and more backpacking & camping gear.


For me, I've never once regretted the money I spent on my pair of Merrell hiking shoes. My women's Moab mid hiking boots have helped me see Utah better than I ever imagined. I splurged for the Goretex water protection and it's served me well. I've hiked through pouring rain, as well as photographed some amazing river scenes that would have otherwise left me with wet feet!

Speaking of water - we have many styles of water hikers in-stock for guys & gals.

Steve Smith, our Shoes department manager, has brought in brand-new hiking boots from Merrell for men & women, as well as Under Armour, Teva, and our local favorite Browning.

If you haven't seen the valley from the Bonneville Shoreline yet, make this the year you make it up there! Whether your favorite views are from the North Ogden Divide, the 12th Street & Ogden Canyon area, or somewhere else like the Uintas (my goal!) along the Wasatch Front.... Let us outfit you with the shoes that will get you there.

Now, all of these boots are going to have great gripping soles and some degree of water resistance. Come in to Smith & Edwards off I-15 at exit 351 and try them on for yourself.

These are 6 men's boots and 1 ladies' pair in this feature, but there are MANY more styles from even more brands including Hi-Tec, Columbia, and more waiting for you here at Smith & Edwards!

Valentine's Day Outfits: "You had me at YELLOW"

- posted by Jerica Keyes

"You had me at yellow" is how this young couple came to be.

Spencer, part of the Sporting Goods team here at Smith & Edwards, and his lovely new wife Emily, said they would love to be the models of our new Valentine's Day outfits.

So, we took them across the road to Willard Bay, and what a beautiful winter day for this cute couple to spend together!

You had me at Yellow...

Emily wearing a cute yellow and gray raglan tee with geometric print.

Emily looks amazing in this cute yellow and gray raglan tee from Cruel. The 3/4 length sleeves and geometric pattern print on the front are both comfy and stylish. And she's combined it with a Cruel hat with navy and yellow embroidery to match the geometric design of her top.

Do it like Spencer, flirty in a lightweight gray t-shirt from Hooey. It's great on its own, or you can combine it with a nice button-up for a dressier look. He's wearing a Stetson pink and blue plaid button-up shirt loosely over top.

Cinch Jeans and Joe's Jeans and Emily modeling a navy blue button up shirt

Keep it comfortable in jeans like Spencer's Regular Joes by Tin Haul, and Emily's Bailey Cinch jeans.

I'd be blue without you...

Another great look for this Valentine's Day is "I'd be blue without you."

Emily has this written all over her with this fashionable navy blue Cruel cotton button-up shirt with cute stitching and arrow print.

With all of her outfits, Emily has added the perfect touch with some arrow designed jewelry from Rock 47 by Wrangler.

Smith And Edwards Visits Tony Lama

- posted by Regan Taylor

This July, our President of Smith and Edwards, Craig Smith, and our boot department manager, Evan Gibson, were invited on a trip to El Paso, Texas to visit the Tony Lama factory.

The above video is of a man nailing and pegging the shank of a boot. Notice where he's pulling the nails out of; HIS MOUTH! Who would of thought someone could make handling a mouth-full of nails look so easy.

Look at all those boots!

Look at all those boots!

Craig and Evan learned quite a bit about the process it takes to make these boots while visiting the factory. Did you know that it takes about 136 steps and 100 people just to finish one pair of Tony Lama's? That's way more than I could have ever imagined!

That's one LONG snake!

That's one LONG snake!

Tony Lama has a section for their "exotic leather's" they use which have snake, lizard, alligator and even ostrich skins. You can see the snake skins hanging here along their fixtures.

Each person at the factory has their own job and task that must be done quickly AND efficiently in order for the boots to be finished on time and uphold quality standards. Evan and Craig both noticed how the Tony Lama workers all act in sync as a team to get the job done right. It was clear that all these workers took pride in their work AND enjoyed what they were doing.
