My daffodils are starting to peek their kelly green leaves out from the ground at my house and that can only mean one thing- It’s go time for spring sneakers. My favorite versatile shoe for spring 2022 is the Women’s X-scape NBK Mid rise hiker. If Care Bears could have designed a shoe to mimic what walking on clouds feels like, these are them.

These hikers are a dream from the moment you put them on. The sole form on the X-scape NBK Mid is a meta-rocker geometry with a flared swallow tail rear to give you a smooth ride while on the trail, walking about the city or simply meeting up for brunch. Every step is stable with the extra grip provided by the Vibram sole.

The Virbram N-Oil Litebase outsole is comprised with more than 90% natural ingredients. It’s construction provides an eco-conscious and lightweight element along with optimal grip for a variety of conditions. These X-scape NBK Mid hikers are already on my packing list for our trip to Costa Rica this summer. We will be allll over Costa Rica and the tread on the X-scape NBK Mid will ensure safer trekking through the cloud forest, across rope bridges, late night jungle tours and down to the beach for sunset champagne.

The outside of the X-scape NBK Mid is pretreated with a water repellent coating so you can keep your socks and feet dry and healthy. The nubuck leather sneaker boot is a eco friendly ECOTAN for a healthier, more sustainable shoe. Most importantly, DeckersXLab supports a healthy working environment of women in their supply chain with the help of HERproject, a collaborative initiative that creates partnerships with brands like ours to empower and educate women in the workplace.

I have the X-scape NBK Mid in the subtle but beautiful color of pastel pink and mint. There are other rising on the ankle and color ways. I honestly can’t tell you which one is my favorite because they are all a mood. The wool collection is a great addition to the line. I find the fit to be true to size. Be sure to visit the site to see how to properly measure your feet for the correct fit.

The Women’s X-scape NBK Mid are available on the DeckersXLab website. They retail for $200 and you can use afterpay to break the cost into 4 small payments.
