Steve AnkneyGeneral, Reviews, Shoe ReviewsLeave a Comment


Today I will be reviewing a pair of shoes that has been on my list to review for much longer than I ever intended–especially given how great they are. (We have a very busy few months, hence our absence from the site.)  In fact, my Topo ST’s have more miles on them than any other pair of shoes prior to … Read More
