July 11, 2017

Benefit James River Association when you purchase Astral Footwear

Join Walkabout Outfitter & Astral Footwear in raising money for the James River Association (JRA). Now through July 30th, 10% of proceeds from all Astral Footwear purchases will go directly to James River Association.  Visit our BlacksburgHarrisonburgRichmond or Valley View stores today to purchase a pair of Astral shoes and support conservation and responsible stewardship of our beloved James River.

Astral water shoes are designed to hold up after constant soaking, drain water and not accumulate funk featuring a “Super Sticky” outsole for maximum grip in wet conditions and surfaces.

Stay tuned for details of our finale celebration taking place at our Carytown-Richmond location on August 11, where we will present a check to the James River Association.
