It’s officially hot in North Carolina. We’re all getting through the summer with loads of gratitude for air conditioning, pools and lakes, and the lightest, most breathable clothing we can find. While you’re trying to keep cool and have summer fun, you might be neglecting a very important part of your wardrobe — your shoes

Stop by SRI in Raleigh to get a better look at these options in our diverse and fully-stocked warehouse.
