LOWA goes to Iceland

I just got back from an amazing trip to Iceland.  We camped and hiked for 6 days, and I am already thinking about how soon I could go back!  We walked, hiked and climbed a LOT. I was fortunate to be reviewing a pair of LOWA Aerox GTX Surrounds while there.  Read about how they worked out HERE.

Just Arrived!

I’m really looking forward to doing some hiking in Iceland in 10 days!  Coming with me on my hikes will be the LOWA Aerox GTX Surround Women’s multi-use shoe.   We (my daughter and I) plan on camping and hiking while there, with some kayaking thrown in.  These LOWA s are definitely lightweight, so lets see how they do on the hikes.  Read more about them HERE

Pika Shoes

Here I go with another shoe review. I selected to give the Oboz Women’s Pika shoes a try since I have worn Oboz shoes (a light hiker) a few years ago and they fit me well. Lately I have been having issues with fit and comfort. I hope these work out. Read more here.

The Acorn Rambler MOC Men’s shoe is now my inside shoe to wear. No more cold spots for my feet in the house. During this period, I have worn these shoes every day in the house and have picked up the mail from the street side mailbox. Weather permitting, I have walked to my daughter’s house about 300 feet away or to the compost in our backyard.

When I received the Lowa San Francisco GTX shoe and pulled them out of the box I was immediately impressed with the style and look of the shoe. I was looking for a casual, comfortable, everyday shoe. I have worn them every day for most of the day since I received them and so far I have not been disappointed. Read more

Hi Tec Breathe Hiking Shoe

Hi Tec Breathe Hiking Shoe

I received the Hi Tec Breathe Hiking Shoe and was looking forward to trying them out.  My plan was that they would be my ‘go to’ hikers for the next few months.  When I went to start writing this review – they had disappeared.  I was shocked, and a bit nervous.  The company had provided them so I could write a review.  I didn’t want to have to tell them I lost the hikers.

Missing: Hi-Tec Breathe Hiking Shoe

Where did they go?  I couldn’t imagine someone would steal them out of my bedroom, especially not with my loud mouthed dog there guarding everything in sight.  I had been looking forward to wearing them, and discovering how comfortable and waterproof they really are.  Maine is wet in the spring, and I’m not always on groomed trails.  It was a bit of a surprise where they went.  Read on to find out how the ‘mystery’ was solved, and the initial portion of the review.  Mystery solved HERE!
