For Women Who DO.



Pearl Izumi X-Project Cycling Shoes

I have no idea why this product photo is coming across so huge. I’m just going to pretend I mean for it to be that way so that you can see this shoe in excruciating detail. Full disclosure, I take… Continue Reading →

Keen Bali Sandals

I almost didn’t go for these. All the reviews were raves and half the people I know have them and to me that’s a little boring, like wow, watch me discover sandals everyone else already knows are awesome. But, curiosity… Continue Reading →

Salomon’s Shitty Hiking Shoes

Teva Tevasphere Trail

Jill’s Review: Though I appreciated the fun press packet these came in, complete with little backpack and GoPro camera (which, true to form, I have still never used even once. Just not a camera person. Good thought though; next time… Continue Reading →
