Outdoor brands are constantly kicking quality products at a frequency that can often have consumers feeling overwhelmed. That’s partly why reviews are helpful, so you can sort through what’s worthwhile and what’s just something shiny with not much substance.

Slip-on Comfort with OluKai Kiʻihele Sneakers

By Jill | April 23, 2021

One of the things I have not missed in this past pandemic year is the occasional need to take my shoes off at security checkpoints in airports.

By Amy | February 2, 2021

I love Lowa boots and shoes so much, I now have half a dozen pairs in my closet. They are, to date, the ONLY shoes that do not give me blisters when I hike long distances, in part, I think, because of their generally wide toe box and their snug heel support. This week, I’m…
