How To Take Care of Your Birkenstocks

If you’re reading this blog post you probably have a pair of Birkenstocks. If you’re one of these who are fund of their Birks and wear them on a regular basis, you certainly made your footrpint on the footbed. This is why cleaning and taking care on your Birkenstocks is a must. here are some steps and pieces of advice to consider.

Cleaning Your Birkenstocks

The cork of the footbed is one of the main areas which you want to keep an eye on. When the shininess of the cork diminishes, you can use a “cork sealer” and reapply it in a thin layer. In case your encountering difficulties applying it, try to use a paintbrush to apply the sealant. Regarding people living on the coast, this is especially important because the cork can crack because of exposure to direct heat.
Water and liquids are should also stay under your radar to protect your Birkenstock sandals. You’re probably seduced by the supportive orthotic aspect of these marvelous sandals and you don’t want to bruise them. There is a Nabuck and Suede brush that you can buy on HappyFeet and which is made to protect your sole by brushing the uppers of your footwear with it in order to loosen dust and dirt particles. After that, you can dry it with a towel.birkenstock arizona sandals cleaning

Refreshing is also something which your Birkenstocks would need on a regular basis. Accumulation of sweat stains and toe jam are unavoidable. This is another occasion to use the Nabuck/Suede brush. Start by dousing all the footbed Birkenstock’s Cleaner and Refresher and then wipe off the result using a clean cloth. Finally, use the brush to restore the texture of your Birkenstocks.

Keep Your Birkenstocks Away from your Pets

I’m almost sure that every Birkenstock owner cares so much for its pair of sandals. Gnawing is the way dogs and puppies test new objects out after having spotted it using their nose. Because chewing is one of their usual activity, your Birkenstocks are also a fun target for this activity. They wouldn’t do that to make you made but they will do it if they’re bored or stressed. So the best thing to do is to keep them away from your pets and buy a toy that will keep your pets busy.

I hope these tips will help to take care of your Birkenstocks, have a nice walk !

5 Most Popular Invicta Men’s Watches

Welcome to another men’s fashion post of mine. Today we’ll be looking at the 7 best invicta watches for men. Because Invicta offers some great quality/price timepieces, these are one of the most popular best-selling watches, and which some of them are on sale, that you can offer yourself or your friends and family.
Invicta watches are the topic of debate of many watches forums because of the controversy about its quality and reputation. On this page I’ll list down our list of the most popular Invicta watches with a little comment on each one, so bear with me.

1. Invicta 8926 Pro Diverinvicta-8926

I don’t know when blogs and websites will stop making reviews on this one. The Invicta 8926 is definitely the most popular of all with  1,333 customer reviews  in Amazon. I think there are three main reasons for that : the striking resemblance to the famos Rolex Sumariner, the nice features ( like the Self-winding automatic movements ), and the low price of it especially when on sale as it has reached $75 only.
The Invicta 8926 is also 200m (656 ft.) water resistant, and its case measures 40m in with.

2. Invicta  9211 Speedway

The Invicta Speedway is a design copy success from the American watchmaker. Why I call it a copy? Well some of view may have already recognized or had an impression of deja-vu, the Invicta Speedway is a homage or copy of the Rolex Daytona (which costs  $12,000 ). It’s really hard to distinguish the difference when your not close to it.

3. Invicta 9937 Pro Diver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Invicta 9937 is like the later version of the 8926 with a more sharper unidirectional coin b-edge bezel. It has a Quality Swiss Automatic Movement, which means it doesn’t need a battery. and is also 656 feet water  resistant. The Case diameter is 40 millimeters and 12 millimeters thick.

4. Invicta 0924 Subaqua

Invicta Subaqua is the name of another popular collection from the same brand. Just like the Pro Diver, these watches also destined to diving fans but which prefer big face watches. This Invicta watche’s case diameter measures 50mm and 17mm in thincknes which makes a huge watch. As expected, the water resistance is also there with 200m.

5. Invicta 6986 Pro Diver6986

This is another timepiece from the Pro Diver collection. Unlike the Pro Diver 8926, this one has a bigger face and is 48mm in width. It has a bit of resemblance to the Invicta Venom, but this one is far low in terms of water resistance as it has a rate of 100 m (330 ft) only. Also, the movement of this watch is a quartz movement.

Conclusion

I would like to thank for your reading time and I think that at  least of these Invicta watches has grabbed your attention to think about getting one. I have to say that the Invicta  9211 Speedway is my personal favorite, so what’s yours ?

The Garwood is a wooden watches manufacturer out of 100% natural wood. The Garwood design their timepieces in Los Angeles. Clean and Modern look, their watches have seriously appealing look which is, from the first sight, clear to be destined to men. Their marketing campaigns always feature a man by the way.

The Latest Garwood Watch

The Garwood has released recently their new timepiece entitled “360”. I think they named it this way because The Garwood have always designed their watches in a cubic shape, so this is the first circular watch in their catalogue. This is also the first watch from the American watchmaker that doesn’t have a wooden strap. The strap of this watch is made of cotton felt with leather on the inside to make it comfortable on the wrist. The dial face of this model is an oil-painted carbon fiber protected under a sapphire crystal glass.

The Garwood watches are all, except the 360 model, designed with a cubic face and has an arrow shaped hour/minute hand, the same arrow shape found on the brand’s logo. Almost all The Garwood watches have a purple color seconds hand, except for the “Great Dane” and “The Sumo” models which have it painted in red. The purple color on the seconds hand is a great choice as it adds a subtle coloring touch that matches both the black and the white dials of their watches.

Wood types used by The Garwood on their timepieces are mainly American Maple wood like on “The Great Dane”, Zebrawood like on “Wakati” and the Indonesian Sandalwood found on “Kuta”. The clasp is made of a Stainless Steel.
