Field Test | ZEMgear Terra Split-Toe Shoe Review
Less shoes and more you! The philosophy behind ZEMgear footwear is based on proprioception – with lesser shoe information from the foot travels a lot quickly to the brain hence brings stability, natural movement, balance and performance. Evolving from it’s beach volleyball roots, ZEMgear has been continually developing its line of products for different type of activities. I recently got a ZEMgear Terra, a ZEMgear footwear geared towards the active traveler. It has a ninja split-toe design with toe-guard protection and barefoot agility feel and a Green Grip outsole with non-slip and high traction for different terrains. I had the ZEMgear Terra for more than a month already and put it through several abuse – from mountain climbs, river treks, track runs and even general gym use.
New Balance Minimus Road 10v2: Getting Into Minimalist Running
I had to retire my aging pair of New Balance All-terrain running shoes and went out shopping for a new one. I got very curious with barefoot running that I got really interested at the Vibram FiveFingers at first. Thinking I’m not up for fully barefoot running yet, I decided to go with a safe choice for a brand which is still New Balance, which I have trusted for years. I found out they got minimal running shoes with their Minimus line and decided to try the New Balance Minimus Road 10v2. A month after, more than 70km run and gym use later, how did I find this minimal shoes perform?
