These Sheepskin Insoles Make Every Pair of Shoes Feel As Soft and Comfy As Uggs

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 10:31
<p>We all deserve a vacation, a getaway, a mini break from life every now and then. We work hard.</p><p>But while our brains might get a break when we ditch our desks to explore a new destination, our feet are often forced to work overtime. It’s time to consider lifestyle choices that give our feet a vacation, too.</p><p>Luckily, we have podiatrists to give us helpful advice, like how to <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/shoes/how-to-break-in-shoes" target="_blank">break in shoes</a> before a trip, <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/shoes/comfy-walking-boots-for-travel" target="_blank">find doctor-approved comfort shoes</a>, and use inserts to help the fit of a shoe. To be clear, I am not a podiatrist, but just a person who knows comfort when she feels it.</p><p>I recently bought a pair of rubber-soled, chunky heel, black leather boots that could not be returned, risking it all to find out they were a bit too large for me. After trying on several different pairs of thick socks with no luck at a better fit, I sought out the help of the internet for the <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/shoes/best-comfort-insoles-inserts-on-amazon" target="_blank">best affordable shoe inserts</a> for boots. And soon thereafter, I was floating on a cloud of sheepskin.</p><p>The insoles that have since altered the future of my feet come highly rated by Amazon and Nordstrom reviewers alike at a whopping 4.5 stars. <a data-ecommerce="true" href="https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ugg-genuine-sheepskin-insoles-women/5025517" target="_blank">UGG’s Genuine Sheepskin insoles</a> are the definition of plush. The fur is backed by dual-density foam that is malleable to fit into any shoe and the shock-absorbent heel pod and layer of shearling cushion make these so comfortable they magically change any shoe into a warm house slipper. The thickness helps make my boots fit perfectly so if you are not in need of downsizing a shoe, I suggest ordering a slightly smaller insole. </p><p>If you are already aware of the level of pleasure in an UGG product, then you know the way these might feel. Before these insoles, I had been in the dark about the coziness on offer from the power of sheepskin. These insoles are the perfect addition to any shoe — whether it’s an UGG boot or a black leather, chunky-heeled boot like mine — so we can all be walking on clouds together.</p><img alt="UGG Sheepskin Insoles "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1550094662/ugg-sheepskin-insoles-UGGINSERTS0219.jpg?itok=xC-FR1oR"><p><br />To buy: <a href="https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ugg-genuine-sheepskin-insoles-women/5025517">nordstrom.com</a>, $20</p>

2018 Volkswagen Atlas SE Long-Term Update 1: Tire Killer!

Motortrend News Feed - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 09:00

The light goes green. The front tires jump, chirp as they lose traction, then settle as I pull away from the line. Such has been my experience with the Volkswagen Atlas. And before you jump to conclusions and assume I’m gunning it at every stoplight, let me assure you that I am not being overly aggressive in my acceleration. Unfortunately, our V-6-equipped brute is not equipped with the $1,800 optional 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, which means the entirety of the 266 lb-ft is directed forward overwhelming the limits of the front tires. And that’s when the ground is dry. When it rains, luckily a rare event in Southern California, you really have to let the Atlas begin to roll without giving it any throttle input in order to mitigate tire slippage. I would hesitate to drive in wetter, colder climates that could see snow or ice without replacing its current 245/60R18 Continental CrossContact LX Sport tires.

The front-end traction is not the only driving characteristic that reduces my confidence in the Atlas’s overall handling. Like a 4,200-pound Great Dane puppy, it bounds places, full of unnecessary movements and unsure of how to control its enormous extremities. My commute includes a section of rough coastal road, and once the bumps, drops, twists, and turns start, I never feel like the Atlas settles until I get back to a smooth, level road.

Despite the Atlas’s shortcomings, the generously sized VW has become a favorite of our video crew, who regularly uses it to haul multiple people as well as countless cases of equipment. The cavernous Atlas, with its 96.8 cubic feet of cargo room, provides ample room to store their stuff and still have room to work out of on the road. With two USB ports servicing the front passengers, two for the second row, and one 12-volt plug per row, the Atlas has plenty of power options to support the needs of passengers in the first two rows. Absent from the Atlas’ interior: USB ports for the third row as well as a 110-volt outlet, which is much handier than 12-volt plugs requiring inverters in order to plug most electronics in. The missing USB and 110-volt outlets are what keep the Atlas from joining the true family hauler ranks alongside minivans and full-size SUVs.

The cavernous cargo area is truly impressive with the second and third rows folded. Read more about our long-term 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SE:

A Rogue Drone Shut Down Dubai International Airport for 30 Minutes

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 07:45
<p>Travelers at Dubai International Airport found themselves temporarily delayed on Friday morning after an unauthorized drone was seen over a terminal, according to <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/dubai-airport-unauthorised-drone-forces-short-shut-down-and-grounded-flights-2019-2//?r=AU&amp;IR=T" target="_blank"><em>Business Insider</em>.</a></p><p>Rogue drones have been increasingly seen at airports in the last few months, including one that <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/london-gatwick-airport-drone-shut-down" target="_blank">shut down Gatwick Airport</a> in December, causing delays and flight cancellations. Dubai International Airport is the third busiest airport in the world, so even a short delay can cause massive problems.</p><p>According to <a href="https://gizmodo.com/rogue-drone-shuts-down-the-third-busiest-airport-in-the-1832644733" target="_blank"><em>Gizmodo</em></a>, the airport was shut down between 10:13 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. local time, in order to assess the situation. The Dubai Media Office confirmed in a tweet that “operations at Dubai International are back to normal after less than 30 minutes of delay due to unauthorized drone activity.”</p><p>Allegedly, drone sightings have interrupted airport operations in Dubai in the past, according to the <a href="https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/dubai-airport-delays-flights-in-and-out-of-airport-on-hold-due-to-drone-activity-a4067616.html" target="_blank"><em>Evening Standard</em></a>. Planes cannot safely take off while drones are seen in the area, since it could lead to a crash, much like when a <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/airlines-airports/drone-hits-british-airways-plane" target="_blank">British Airways plane hit a drone</a> at London Heathrow International Airport back in 2016.</p><p>This is why the United Arab Emirates strictly forbid drones on airport premises. According to a tweet by the Dubai Media Office, “flying drones without obtaining permission is subject to legal liability as per UAE laws.”</p><p>According to the <em>Evening Standard</em>, all drone owners must also register with the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority in order to operate their devices legally. Cameras and lasers are also prohibited.</p><p>Some passengers posted on Twitter during the delay. One passenger claimed his flight was “stuck for ages” while taxiing on the runway, waiting to take off.</p><p>The owner of the drone is unknown. Back in 2016, Dubai International Airport announced that it would be <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/airlines-airports/dubai-drone-hunter" target="_blank">testing out “drone hunter” aircraft</a> to help counteract the drone trend. However, it seems the technology isn’t as effective as desired.</p>
