"Trail shoes for wide, flat feet"
David: the first time I tried on a pair of Keens they got an instant thumbs down from me. I walked around in the store a bit and really didn't like the feel. A season later, with more toenails ...

"Short Report: Fly Creek UL1 Platinum"

"The Wonderland Trail"

"MLD Cuben grace tarp Vs. Zpacks hexamid. Storm worthiness
