Merrell Connect Proterra HT 3

Fieldwork and minimalist shoes are not two things I ever planned on combining. Hiking over rubbly lava flows, through dense brush and over downed trees, and on steep slopes, all while carrying a pack loaded up with 40 pounds of rocks, requires sturdy shoes, whether I like it or not. Features like a thicker, stiffer sole and a high-cut vamp … Read More

SKORA PHASE 4

I’d like to begin this review similar to my last SKORA review and talk about the brand as a whole.  In that post, I referred to the many awards and praises that SKORA has received, including a reference to SKORA being “the Apple of running shoes”.  At first, I thought that analogy was made based on the quality of the … Read More

After a frigid winter and a fairly cool spring, and just as we welcome the first day of summer, temperatures are finally starting to ramp up in Wisconsin (93 ℉ today!).
