We have a new style from Merrell called the Encore Lattice, and we think it’s the most comfortable clog in the store. This women’s shoe is easy to slide on or kick off making it super easy to wear. The heel features the Merrell Air Cushion system for shock absorption and added stability. The lining of this clog is made of breathable mesh to keep your feet cool and dry. Have warm feet? That’s fine too. The insides are lined with an Ageis Antimicrobal Solution to prevent odors and bacteria. The sole is made of sticky rubber for extra grip on the trail or in the family room. Merrell, you’ve done a great job with the Encore Lattice clogs!
Back in 1935, Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoe and called it the Sperry Top Sider. Over the years this boat shoe became an American Classic and is worn by people like us who are drawn to the sun, surf and soul of the ocean. The look is classic and the brand is iconic. We carry the classic styles at The Berkshire General Store in all sizes. And don’t forget, they won’t mark up the deck of your boat!
If you’re feet are always cold, try out the Adidas Climawarm Blast Sneakers. They could be the warmest sneakers on the planet. These sneakers are lined with Climawarm thermal insulation to keep your feet warm and dry during cold weather runs. They’re breathable, feature a grippy rubber outsole and have flex groves for maximum flexibility. This sneaker by Adidas is not only warm, it’s revolutionary.
Sunglasses are a new category for us so we set out to find the best to carry in our store. It didn’t take us long to find Spy Optic, makers of the best sunglasses, snow goggles and more. All SPY sunglasses feature 100% UVA, B & C protection, which is very important. They look great too. Our favorite is the Dirty Mo, designed specifically to Dale Earnhardt Jr’s specifications. They’re comfortable and feature lots of patented technology so stop in and try a pair on.
G-Shock by Casio recently introduced a line of watches with Bluetooth technology built in. Imagine your iPhone rings and your G-Shock vibrates letting you know that you have a call. Receive an email? Great. Your G-Shock will let you know with a beep or vibration. If you loose your smartphone, the watch has a built in Bluetooth phone finder. Simply press a button and your smartphone will sound off a tone until you find it. We bought the watches in 4 colors and they look great. These G-Shocks are limited edition so they wont last long.
Many years ago The Berkshire General store was the first store in the Wayne, NJ area to carry Smartwool socks. Years later we still offer a huge selection of Smartwool socks, plus we are one of the first stores in the area to carry Smartwool Hats, Gloves, Sweaters, Long Underwear, Jackets, Scarves, Beanies and more. They make great products and we try to carry them all.
This Saturday our Rep from Smartwool will be at our 4th annual Tech Day. Aside from recommending the perfect items and answering your questions, he will be giving away items all day. Buy any 3 Smartwool Socks, and get a free pair of Smartwool Socks PLUS buy any Smartwool apparel and get a free Smartwool beanie.
At the Berkshire General Store, we offer a great selection of jackets. Women often ask, “what is your best all around jacket.” This fall we set out to test all of our jackets and after careful review we selected a winner – The Patagonia ADZE Jacket.
We picked the Patagonia ADZE jacket for several reasons. Let’s start with the outer shell. It’s made of Polartec woven stretch polyester so it’s not only soft, but water resistant and rain proof. The neck is lined with Microfleece and the jacket features a drawcord to keep drafts out and heat in. This low profile jacket features just the right amount of pockets. 1 internal pocket and 2 pockets on the outside. The jacket comes in great colors and retails at $139.00 – far less than others we tested. In the end, it’s a great all around jacket.
On Saturday we will be hosting our 4th Annual Tech Day at the Berkshire General Store. During the day we will hold a raffle for 1 Women’s Patagonia ADZE Jacket. To enter, you must try on the Jacket to see for yourself how great it is! We’ll post the winner on Facebook.
