The new PakemsSol Light will be available summer 2015. This new style is a perfect compliment to the current Pakems high top and low cut insulated styles made for cool weather wear. The new Sol Light is even more compressible than the original Pakems,has a soft, breathable mesh upper, precise comfort fit with one-pull lacing, EVA midsole, a durable rubber outsole for excellent traction, and it may be worn heel up or down for a convenient summer slip on. The Sol Light is sold with a strapped tote bag for convenient hands-free carrying. MSRP $55.00.

With holes on the side of the shoe for water drainage, these are perfect for any water-sport, from kayaking to whitewater rafting to boating. And if it’s an overnight trip via water, Pakems are an ideal solution when space is an issue and that perfect shoe for the campfire. Not only are Pakems perfect for water-sports, but they are also ideal for after cycling, hiking, and backpacking. 

Pakems are also on a mission to build a better future, one step at a time. Integral to the company core values is the belief to, “Step Into Your Intentions.” With its ongoing “Step Into Your Intentions” campaign, Pakems encourages positive actions and kindness to others. Pakems first intention is a reminder to stomp out bullying. Each shoe is printed with the intention to “BE KIND” to others. Pakems’ founder Julie Adams, was bullied as a child in grade school and wanted to use her company to make a difference. Adams says, “We believe that we as a company can encourage and promote daily acts of kindness toward others.”
