Catherine Greenwald's Bio

When not working with words, I can be found snowboarding, biking (mountain and road, I don't discriminate), and hiking. Indoors, I'm into good food & wine, and keeping the peace between dogs and cats.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I was about to return the new snowboard boots I'd gotten because I just couldn't get them to fit right -- they were too big, and the size below was too small. Decided to try these out, to see if they would make a difference -- AMAZING! They not only took up a bit more space than the cheesy stock insoles in the boots, but they made them way more comfortable. But the real difference was in my riding -- the ability to make full contact with the bottom of the boot, and the great support, made a huge difference. I could ride all day without pain and rode way better, too. After the season I stuck them in running shoes but I think they are a bit too thick for this purpose, will get the thinner variety for those. Highly recommended!

Love the sound on these -- not mushy like you might expect on wireless headphones at this price point. You don't have to spend a lot for great audio! The wireless is super convenient when you're moving around, at the gym, etc. but I really appreciate the aux cord for watching videos on a laptop -- saves battery and there's no lag like I've sometimes noticed you get with Bluetooth connections.

Fit: True to size

I got these for my son and while it's been too hot to wear them much, he does say that the fabric is really comfortable and he really likes the fit, which is not too baggy and not too slim. He also likes that the cuffs fits snugly, so they're not flapping around like they do on some 'joggers.'

Fit: Runs large

My son wears these shoes for training (straight-ahead running) and lifting, for which he says they are great. He also ends up wearing them around a lot just casually. The one time they're not great is for quick side-to-side movements like you'd do in agility training -- that's where he's noticing some slop, which may mean that they run slightly large. So if you're planning on that kind of workouts, might want to size down a half size.

I just did a 50-mile ride last weekend in these and was very impressed. They sit very light on my face, so I barely notice they're there. They also stay in place very nicely, but without digging or pinching at the nose or by the ears. I might have to get several pairs since I always lose sunglasses I like!

These weren't at all what I was expecting, but that's OK, they're great. The fabric is kind of a stretch nylony-like material, very thin and breathable. The fit isn't too tight or too baggy, and I like the material on the cuffs. My only complaint might be that the pockets are a bit small, but that's not really a big deal.

Fit: True to size

For a long time, my husband has worn hiking shoes just about all the time (whenever he isn't forced to wear dress shoes). For years he wore a particular Merrell shoe until it was discontinued; he found another model that he liked but it was discontinued, too. The next pair of Merrells just didn't cut it, so when those fell apart he moved on to Salomons. He liked the first pair well enough, but wasn't too disappointed when those were discontinued. The next model he tried fell apart in less than a year, so it was time to move on, to these shoes.
It's been a year since he bought his first pair, and he loves them so much he just bought two more, in case they end up being discontinued! (I know, a little strange, but he REALLY likes them.)
He finds the fit and support are far superior to the other shoes he's had, but where they really shine is durability. He's really hard on his footwear but I have to say they still look great after a year of constant wear. The fit is true to size but a bit narrow; he found he had to wear them around for a few weeks before his custom orthotics would fit in there, but once they were broken in, they fit like a glove.
All in all, a great product, one worth stocking up on!!

I was worried that these might flop around a little while I was walking, but the heel piece grips really comfortably (with no rubbing). The result is a secure fit which, on top of the great looks and versatility of this shoe, make it a winner. Definitely runs true to size.

I loved that these were different from the standard bandana, yet classic-looking in their own way. I haven't washed it yet so I can't comment on the colorfastness, but will be sure to do it carefully when the time comes.

Let's just say, there is a lot of material in this top. If you're tall and lean with pretty narrow shoulders, it's going to look fantastic on you. For everyone else, it's a definite maybe. I did some tailoring on this top to make it fit a little more snugly and that definitely helped. I didn't just return it because I really like the fabric and the print, and the overall concept. It just needed a little help with execution.

I got this for our off-the-grid cabin -- what a great choice! It casts plenty of light for most tasks, reading, or lighting your way to the outhouse. It also packs down nice and small for storage and holds a charge well. Will definitely be investing in a few more of these so we aren't so reliant on candles or fuel/battery camp lanterns!

I got this chair to replace the heavy camp chair I was lugging on hikes -- what a great move! This chair is super light, very compact, and pretty comfortable. I would say that if you want to do some serious lounging the back isn't high enough, but if you want to be able to sit in comfort off the ground, this chair is an excellent choice.

Size Purchased: 12

Based on the reviews my son decided to size down (from 13 to 12) -- definitely the right decision. It was a little worrying looking at them out of the box, but once he tried them on they were great. The extra width and the soft stretchy upper meant they were just right, fit like a glove. And he loves the look, too.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

These were really cute and quite comfortable, but they were a touch large -- not by much, but enough that if they stretched out at all they would be flopping around a little. Definitely recommend sizing down a half size.

Connecting up to my wireless speakers is a hassle so I was pleasantly surprised when it was super easy with these headphones. Love that! Also, the neck thingy really does help hold them in place during exercise, and you can't beat wireless headphones when you're at the gym. So far no quality issues.
