Travis, Yes it is hard to find the truth. But, we should make an effort; as you just did. Obviously Forbes is pro-business, but they usually do an honest job reporting facts. The big diffi...

Re: Vibram Fivefingers Survey...and whole lot more you didn't ask for.
Craig, Excellent summation. I have pretty much gone back to my Salomon's. They are just better all around for hiking. On our trip I did wear the Shay's and if you remember, I got a prett...
