Does the new Evo running shoe live up to its $160 price tag?


I finally got my feet into a pair of Evo running shoes made with Terra Plana's VivoBarefoot technology. I ditched the socks (a formality given the nature of the shoes) and rushed out for a 2 mile run. There's been a lot of hype surrounding these shoes so I was excited to finally test them out. Check out the review and the video I made immediately after my run.



Unique and attractive design.

Fitted and carefully contructed. There are no loose ends and the materials seem high grade and durable.

Extremely comfortable, especially without socks.

Super light weight...7 ounces to be exact.

Thin, puncture resistant sole that allows you to run on any surface without piercing your skin. However, I recommend avoiding areas with lots of small rocks/spikey objects and uneven surfaces.

Anti-microbial sole that prevents bacterial and fungal growth. This is a very important feature if you decide to go sockless or plan to go...

My apologies for going radio silent


My grandma recently passed away. She played a huge role in shaping my life and I needed some time to mourn and recover. That's her above, moments after getting a surprise kiss from Shorty. To all my readers: thank you for being patient and understanding why it's been so quiet on

My grandma loved to swim so expect to see lots on aqua fitness and fashion in the coming months. Please submit any classes or gear you'd like reviewed. Send tips or post comments. I'm back at it and I want to hear from you!
