What have you bought?

Odd Man

Thru Hiker
My brother who is not really that into the outdoors went mad with his credit card when we visited the Gaynor's shop in the lakes. I could see the buyer's remorse written over his face when driving home 😂

Did you offer to buy unwanted items from him at a steep discount? ;)

I’m curious about these shoes. Saw them on Sportpursuit but not sure how wide a fitting they are. I’m using Altras but I’m not sure my old feet are living with the ‘zero drop’ very well
They're wide, straight toe. Depending on the model, can be not so wide in the midfoot. Non plastic heel helps the shoe hold and mould to the heel.
Grip wise... Fierce.
On some models, they require a few miles breaking in for best fit.

I'm on the cusp of adding a 3rd variant for hiking and ultra distances... That would be the Icebug 'outrun'

At least with Sportshoes you can send them back.

Sizing wise, I've gone for 12, in inov8 etc I'm 11.5
And regular shoes boots, 10.5/11

I've been very impressed with the t-shirt version so jumped at the Amazon price for. The long sleeve.
These are designed with wearing a light pack in mimd.
The technology descriptions seem ludicrously overdone...
But. They work..
Very well. This one is for warm and cold weather.
I've had their winter tights for a few years. Built. To last. Screenshot_20230121_155643.jpg

It’s the hiking bit that interests me. I’m using Olympus 5 shoes and boots. I really need a wide fitting just for comfort

Super impressed with it. So far it seems to be living up to the hype. Wicks and dries like nothing else I've used. Wore it on a five hour snowy run on the weekend kept me warm, wicked and stayed dry.

My word does it hold odour though, worse than smelly Helly. Perhaps it's just a poor reflection of myself but it stinks after every outing!
