zubits

We're all in a hurry these days and like to find ways to cut down on time spent doing things that aren't important to us versus tasks that are important and fun. One way to save a little time each day is to add a pair of Zubits to your favorite shoes. Zubits is a [...]

taclace

For those who wear boots regularly, lacing and unlacing them can be a drag.  Properly laced boots can have a big impact your performance while wearing them, but sometimes you may need to lace them quickly. I stumbled upon TacLace (see what I did there?) when I was researching boots to wear during a GORUCK [...]

If you walk/run, ride a bike, or do other outdoor activities at night, you need to make sure you're visible to motorists.  There's a lot of reflective clothing on the market, but they may not suit you for one reason or another.  With the PowerSpurz from 4id, you can add lights to your own shoes, [...]

ZIPPED-1

We live in a fast paced world, so why shouldn't our shoes. I mean tying and untying them just doesn't make sense in this society of innovators. While shoes using the ZIPPED, an active indiegogo project, aren't the Marty McFly shoes from Back to the Future, they are a nice alternative to tying your laces. [...]

prospects-6

The right tools will make any activity easier and more enjoyable. For example, you wouldn't want to build a house with a Swiss Army Knife or paint a portrait with a toothbrush. So it follows that a runner wouldn't wear flip flops to run a marathon and a sports walker shouldn't wear running shoes to [...]

spira-duck-dynasty

I cringe when people say this, but seriously? Ugh... I'm so sick of reality shows that I could barf. I've never even watched one episode of the hit A&E series Duck Dynasty, but just the fact that a company whose product I liked is now trying to become the official shoe of a lame reality [...]

My daily geek uniform includes a pair of sneakers, tennis shoes, athletic shoes, kicks or whatever other name you might call them. I own more pairs of sneakers than "grown up" shoes and am picky when it comes to their style and comfort. A month or so ago when I saw the news about the [...]

Can a pair of shoes be considered a "gadget"?  The new Reebok ATV 19+ has to come awfully close.  The carbon rubber sole is comprised of 19 irregular "lugs"  designed to grip any terrain you find yourself on, be it snow, mud, sand, or grass and still provide a cushioning support to the foot.  More [...]

shoe-hickies-laces

When my daughter was learning to tie her own shoes, we found some stretchy shoe laces that made it a bit easier for her to get her shoes on her feet without her having to loosen/tighten her laces, too.  The older lady who lived next door wanted some of those laces so she could get [...]

spira-6

When Spira asked if I would like to review a pair of their running shoes, I told them that I'm not a runner and that I'm really picky when it comes to the look and feel of the sneakers I wear. That didn't scare them off, so they sent me a pair of their Women's Odyssey [...]

Being a decades-long runner and a bit AR, I am particular about the running shoes I use. Especially now that I am getting older, I want to keep my knees and ankles as strong and healthy as I can. As runners out there know, it all starts with your shoes. In the past year I [...]

Reefflipflop-1.jpg

Working in the health care industry I do not invest a great deal in my wardrobe.  I own ONE suit.  I do however, own numerous pairs of flip flops.  I firmly believe other than the bikini, flip flops are the best clothing item ever invented (and the only one of the two I can wear....)  [...]

I live in sneakers. That's all I wear day in and day out. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I don't think I have even own one pair of 'dress' shoes right now that fit me. My kicks of choice lately have been Asics Gel Enduro trail running shoes because I like a lot [...]
