Shoes for Father’s Day 2012

Father's Day is Sunday

Any plans for Father’s Day?

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17th. It’s easy to remember for any golf fan out there because it’s the same weekend as the US Open. I’m sure a few dads out there love nothing more than spending the morning out on the course and the afternoon in the recliner watching the exciting action take place on the pro tour.

If you’re planning to spend time with dad this week or if you’re sending him a gift you might consider a new pair of shoes. Guys sometimes struggle to find a pair of shoes they like. That’s why you’ll see dad wearing the same pair of tennis shoes for two, five or even ten years. When they find something they like they stick with it until something better comes along.

There are lots of great shoes out there, though, and dad would probably love to have a new pair to try out this summer.

Here five great shoes for Father’s Day 2012.
