Oboz Traverse Low Bdry hiking shoes update

I like to start using a new pair of hiking shoes at the gym first to experience using the shoes under controlled conditions. I think this is especially true in cold weather when the shoe gets warmer in the gym and molds to my foot quicker. After 3 visits to the gym the Oboz Traverse Low Bdry hiking shoes felt very comfortable on my feet. At the gym I can feel how well this shoe performs with different socks which would not be as easy to do while hiking on the trail. With my thinest socks, the shoes are slightly loose whereas with my thickest socks the shoes are snug fitting. With my medium weight wool socks which I wear for most of my hikes, the shoes fit the best which is something I like.

I have been wearing these shoes around my neighborhood, taking the dog out for walks, and going shopping locally. I have also attended a few seminars. I am able to go anywhere and feel comfortable with Oboz Traverse Low Bdry hiking shoes.  To read more please click here.

Waterproof test of the Lifeproof Fre

Waterproof test of the Lifeproof Fre

I will be reviewing the Lifeproof Fre with my iPhone 5 over the next few months to see if it lives up to all the advantages it is advertised to have. I have already confirmed that it is waterproof and that is a big plus in my book because I spend a lot of time around water.  To read the rest of my first observations please click here.
