Icebug Zeal RB9X Review

Nick DahlGeneral, Reviews, Shoe ReviewsLeave a Comment

RB9X fits comfortably on any foot

First off, it probably makes sense to introduce Icebug as a company, if any of you are as ignorant as I was when I first got my pair of RB9X’s. They’re a Swedish footwear brand founded in 2001, specializing in mud running/off-road/trail shoes. A specific niche, for sure, but it’s one that this company has really settled into and dominated since they … Read More

Topo ST Review

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

MeaganGeneral, Reviews, Shoe ReviewsLeave a Comment


I recently received a pair of Skora Fits, and wanted to give you an early look at them while I work on getting in enough mileage to write a full review. The Fit is the latest addition to the Skora line-up–it was introduced early this spring, and is priced at $94.95, making it the least expensive model Skora offers. My … Read More

Merrell Proterra Vim (Mid) Sport Review

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

Soft Star Moc3 RunAmoc Review

Steve AnkneyGeneral, Reviews, Shoe ReviewsLeave a Comment


Sandals, socks, and toe shoes are just some of the types of footwear I never thought I would go running in prior to our introduction to minimalist shoes (not to mention going completely barefoot).  Just two years later and I’m going out for runs in all of the above, and now I can add 2 mm thick running moccasins (Soft … Read More

Lems Primal 2 Review

Lems Primal2 - 02

Terminator 2, Aliens, X-Men 2, Evil Dead 2, and The Dark Knight. All films that are arguably better than their predecessors.  And yet, as most movie fans know, it is rare that the sequel lives up to (or exceeds) the hype of the original. Apparently this is not the case in the shoe world. This year has already seen the introduction … Read More

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
