Human powered adventure almost always requires footwear and selecting the right footwear can make all the difference between success and failure both over the short and long term. If you are anything like us, you want to be active, healthy, injury free, and doing the things you love well into old age. It pains me to see people unable to do the activities they love due to chronic injuries. I know how frustrating that can be, I was there too. Luckily, I was able to break out of that cycle by changing my approach to footwear. It is my hope that things I have learned can be of use to others as well.
