Outdoor enthusiasts: Stock up on specialty footwear now, or watch as prices on waterproof trail running shoes and other kicks rise nearly 40 percent in 2013.

Unless Congress overturns the Obama administration's decision to oppose outdoor industry duty suspension bills, prices on specialty footwear are set to increase as much as 38 percent Jan. 1, said Outdoor Industry Association President Frank Hugelmeyer.

The tariffs will affect technical footwear manufactured overseas. That includes waterproof and breathable footwear, trail running shoes and rubber-soled boots, Hugelmeyer said, hurting manufacturers, retailers and consumers, especially in outdoor-lifestyle hubs like Boulder.

Good. Maybe that will be incentive to bring manufacturing back to this country.
