I've been testing Mudgear Compression Socks and 1/4 Trail Socks for quite some time now, and they've become my go-to sock for everyday activities, training, & racing. Heck, I'm even wearing them now while writing this!
Brett tests out the new insoles from ShoeCue, featuring a textured heel to restore important sensory feedback from your feet to your brain. If anyone could use a better foot-brain connection, it's Brett.
That was essentially the conversation before I received a pair of the Fit Shit compression socks. I’ll be honest, I’m one of the most skeptical people you’re going to meet. When I see any kind of fitness gadget, gear or special medically infused spiritual copper compression gear… I tend to call bullhockey and ask for empirical evidence to support claims. Compression gear is full of those claims.
Wearing a dryrobe is like being hugged by a Care Bear, it is like walking around in your sleeping bag…and it’s awesome. The dryrobe, which you may have seen as a sponsor on BattleFrog College Championships, at OCR World Championships or at the uphill swim based OCR Neptune Steps, has made a big splash in the OCR world and for a good reason.

I've been testing the Icebug Zeal since December 3, and after a month or so of only seeing photos I was really excited to get my feet into 'em. I'll use the term "into" quite literally, as the radical midsole design envelops most of your foot, designed for lateral stability and an overall low 6mm drop from heel to toe.
A lot of times people think you need to have gym memberships or go to big fancy crossfit gyms to be in good shape for Obstacle Course Races(OCR's). The reality is you just need the right equipment and you can do great workouts from your own home or anywhere.
Lets start off by saying that I did not want to like these shoes, but after giving them a shot they are my “go to” shoes now! The last 2 -3 yrs I got used to wearing minimalist shoes so anything slightly heavy was a “NO” for me. At 9.1 oz per shoe & over 1lb these would typically be too heavy for me. My first impression when putting these shoes on the first time was how comfortable they felt. I loved the way the Internal slip-on construction fits the foot like a sock without causing excessive pressure, the stretch air mesh tongue is one of the most comfortable I have tried in any shoe. It makes me want to use them without socks.
