Adidas Hiking Shoes For Women Reviewed

By Ahmed | June 6, 2016

I’m picky about my hiking shoes. As an avid hiker and past Search and Rescue volunteer, I’ve gone through quite a few pairs. I’ve rarely been completely happy with any of them: cheap shoes are too stiff, or too heavy, or just too flimsy, and top-of-the-line models may fit like a glove, but tend to…


Teva Multi Performance Shoes/ Sandals Review

By Ahmed | June 2, 2016

The best thing about sandals and flip-flops in the summer is that they are easy to slip on, they are easy to wear, and they pretty much go with anything, from a pair of shorts to a flowy sundress. However, we all know that flip-flops are also super uncomfortable. For those sandal seekers who are…

Birkenstock Boston

By Tim Guill | December 3, 2015

We’ve seen Birkenstocks for decades now, and if you’re anything like me you didn’t quite understand the fascination – until now. Ever since I got my first pair completely subscribe to the obsession. To start with, my Boston Birkenstocks are ridiculously comfortable. I mean, wear-all-day-while-traveling and feel-like- I’m-on-a-cloud comfortable. The shoe is intended to replicate…
