Eric's Bio

The most important thing to understand about me is that I am a hard-worker in everything I do. Whether it be in the workplace or on the paths (both road and dirt).

Sports drives me to be the very best I can be and stay with the very best even if I don't feel 100% all the time.

If I can push for that last little bit to make them work a little harder then I have done my job.

These microspikes help me get through anything that I run in during the winter. The traction that it gives makes me feel confident no matter what situation I get myself into. You seriously need to get a pair if you get yourself into any ice situations where you could fall on your butt, or cause others to fear for their safety because you aren't being smart.

These shoes have style written all over them! Some of the sleekest looking shoes I have in my wardrobe and will be competing with my ecco's for which one's I wear on a daily basis. The comfort and feel of the full grain leather is some of the best in the business! You will not regret purchasing a pair.

It has a traditional width of D to reflects men's shoes. With that being said know that there will be a break in period that will have you needing to wear it around the house so the leather can flex and stretch to reflect the size of your foot. While some leathers will stretch with putting a beeswax conditioner on the outer part of the leather I would stay away from this, as it can cause discoloration of the outer and make the whole shoe look a lot different than when you purchased it. I would go with a neutral oil sponge so it doesn't cause any issues with the darkening of the leather for overall upkeep of the shoe.

If you want comfort mixed with a nice touch of style, then these sandals are for you. Go out on the town, or spend time out on the beach basking in the sun in style. I promise your feet will love you for it. I sized up because I am a half size and the 10 would not have worked at all.

My wife has the brown ones and just recently purchased the black ones. She loves them and the support is bar none some of the best she has ever experienced. If you have any foot problems and are trying to figure out how to solve it I would strongly recommend this option for you.

If you are in need of some good compression sleeves but don't know where to look. Then look no further. These will keep your arms fresh and give you the ability to push through a workout without the heavy feeling your arms may get after a workout without them.

You want something that is beyond durable and an item you can have last your entire life? This is your pot then, because it is beyond amazing. The food you can cook in it is beyond endless. The conditioner is a great add on to keep the overall integrity of the product intact.

These shorts are awesome! While I am 6'2" and the shorts fit me like any shorts would fit a shorter person these are just flat out comfortable and awesome! They have a great assortment of pockets and get the job done no matter where I go. They are beyond comfortable as well.

She was really looking for a nice classy boot and this definitely fits the bill. She is able to wear this boot with any jeans that she has and feel the support these boots give her regardless of where she goes. If you want structure with style, then this is the way to go.

The underwear that icebreaker continues to come up with is awesome! These are really comfortable and I can barely tell I even have them on. If you want a piece of underwear that will get you through the day without any discomfort get these now and I promise you won't be disappointed.

The great part of this shoe is that it has great overall arch support and cushioning. The other parts of the shoe that I will be discussing reflect what needs to be changed for the future for it to be a good shoe no matter what the situation.

After using these shoes several times I have noticed that the overall heel pocket needs to have more of a cup shape put into it, compared to what it currently has. With the shape it currently has it doesn't allow you to go on steep terrain without your heel lifting and potentially causing rubbing that would have you get blisters after wearing them a couple of hours.

Another thing about the heel area is the Achilles area that would protect your Achilles from moving around and getting stressed. There isn't enough protection in this pocket area to hold your Achilles in place.

The next part of the shoe that I would strongly recommend be changed is the out-sole, or would just recommend people get micro spikes whenever they are in a snowy/slippery area. These soles don't have a single ounce of grip and if you are even in a little bit of snow you will notice yourself hesitate and get into a more crouched position because of how uneasy you will feel. Don't even think about wearing them on the trail during winter unless you have micro spikes. You can cause yourself injury and cause uneasiness with others around you because of how you look wearing them.

Keep in mind that the sizing is a little weird. I am used to how Chaco's sizing is, so I went with my traditional size 9 and they fit fine. I couldn't go any lower or higher. With running shoes I will normally run with 10.5's with an extra 1/2 size for overall space to allow my forefoot to splay out.
