Fit: True to size

Just received these yesterday, put them on this morning, and wow! Perfect! So very soft and comfortable. Not restrictive in any way. I have to agree that the calf area is a bit loose - but not so much so that it looks bad. Love the pockets - love everything about these pants. I think I need at least one more color!

I just received my tote yesterday, but have to share my initial thoughts: very attractive tote, love the leather accents, outside material appears to be sturdy enough to withstand just about any abuse, plus easy to wipe clean; heavy-duty zippers, yet don't look out of place, and plenty of pockets to store and organize just about anything! Can't wait to use it!! Love the black with brown leather!

Received this two days ago, and I am so impressed! This is one gorgeous tote!! The interior is well-designed with a place for everything and room to spare. The handles are long enough to go over the shoulder and they are comfortable! The color (cognac) is rich and the leather is soft. Very well made, all the way around. The only thing missing - and it's not a biggie in my book - is the tag that is shown in the pictures. Evidently they don't put tags on them anymore?? All I can say is Good-bye Coach, Cole Haan, and Kate Spade....hello Frye!

I ordered the Wish Tales and the Trout Tales, because I couldn't decide which one I liked better. I honestly intended to only keep one. Well, I'm keeping them both! They are so soft, and the colors/designs are prettier in person! Runs a bit large, but not too much so, and is a bit longer than those I've purchased in previous years, but that's all ok. In the past I always stuck with the solid colors, but I'm so glad I ventured outside the norm! I don't think you'll be disappointed if you order either of these.

This waffle top is very comfortable, and goes with everything. Looks good by itself or underneath a sweater. My only complaint is that the sleeves are NOT long - they hit me half-way between my elbow and wrist. A bit longer than three-quarter but definitely not to the wrist.

We bought this sweater for our daughter - loved the look in the picture, but it looks so much cuter in person! Fabric is soft, long enough to be a "coat" but not so warm that you can't pull it off as a sweater. Our daughter is always cold, and this fits the bill. I was a bit concerned about the length of this garment, as our daughter is not tall at all. It's actually perfect! The gray color is beautiful and very versatile. We scored a hit with this gift!

What initially caught my eye was the review that said "no jiggling." As a person who was once athletic but needs to get back to it, that sounded like a winner to me! And it was! I love these tights! Yes, they hold everything in place, no jiggle, and they don't ride up, which is one of my biggest complaints about the trendy yoga pants that cost so much more (no names mentioned). The length is mid-calf for me, which is good. I love the feel, the way they fit...there are no cons here. Need to order another pair soon!

I absolutely love these shoes!! I have worn the Brooks Cascadia style for years - thought I'd change things up a bit, and am I glad I did! I'm a walker - no running on these feet and ankles - but I love hitting the pavement as often as I can. These shoes are perfect - no rubbing, no heel slipping, no pressure points or tightness at all. Just the right amount of padding, not too cushiony or bouncy. And after my first 2+ mile walk, no aches or pains or complaints. I have to admit, I almost ordered the Cascadia 11 at a the same time, thinking the Adrenaline GTS couldn't possibly be as comfortable. I was so wrong! Now I'm thinking I need to order another pair of these! They are perfect for my not so perfect feet!

UPDATE: Yesterday I ordered a second pair...a girl (no matter how old!) can never have too many shoes! And, thanks to 2-day free shipping, I don't have to wait too long to try them out!! Thanks, backcountry.com!

Let me preface this with the facts that (1) I am NOT a runner and (2) I have terrible feet! This shoe is very comfortable right out of the box - no break in required! It has a bit more cushion than I am used to, but overall it's a great shoe. I have worn them to work, where I'm up and down steps all day, walking around the carpeted office and down into the lower level that is concrete - so I change what I'm walking on quite a bit. Came home the first day without achy feet, which is a big huge first!!

I am an avid walker, and I am always on the lookout for shoes that offer enough support, but don't feel heavy or cumbersome, that don't end up hurting or rubbing or feeling just plain uncomfortable. Well, I think I've found my shoes! So far, the Scarpa Spark is light-weight (feels like minimalist shoes), soft and comfy on my feet, but provide enough support that I don't worry about turning my ankle when I step off a curb. I think these are the answer I've been looking for, but with a little less than 100 miles on them, I guess time will tell. I tried minimalist shoes in the past, loved them, forgot I had them on, but ended up with a stress fracture in my foot. Orthopedist said I should never wear anything but a very supportive shoe (I was born with mild club feet), but I really have a hard time with anything that feels that supportive...if you know what I mean. The true test for me is if, after wearing them for a brisk walk or a trip to the grocery store,I don't take them off the minute I come in the door, well then, they're usually keepers!
If you are lucky enough to have "normal" feet, you will enjoy wearing these shoes...and if you are like me and have "problem" feet, you will be glad you tried them!
