Where the %^&#$ Will the 2016 OCRWC Be?

By |October 29th, 2015|

Zeal: OCR Weapon.

By |February 10th, 2015|

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.

GEAR Review – La Sportiva Bushido

By |May 19th, 2014|

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.

It makes me want to use them without socks.
