Blazing trails

Sponsored by Zappos

Here’s for a bit of irony: on our most recent brand work Zappos had a rather specific theme in mind : how we use Merrells to blaze our own trail, what they didn’t realize was that I had quite literally been blazing my own trail (a la quitting that dental life and figuring out the world of the internet so I could spend more time with my kids) around the same time as moving over to wearing almost strictly Merrell shoes. It wasn’t on purpose by any means but they allowed for me to never really worry about what kind of ground I was about to head into. From backyard shenanigans to our regular family trips to Jackson, Merrells were my shoe of choice.

No more soggy feet after chasing down a kid or two through the mud!

I was actually pretty glad that they were supplying me with a new pair since my current pair had been through the Colorado Rockies, many walks through the Idaho Sawtooths, and many many other excursions. While the old pair still had a lot of life in them this didn’t mean I couldn’t use a new pair. Plus, the new pair (mid Ontario waterproof boot) was far more water resistant than the old pair. No more soggy feet after chasing down a kid or two through the mud!

In any case, I honestly think if you are looking into a pair of hiking shoes, check these guys out. I’ve been wearing a pair for years and plan on wearing them for years to come. 

You can check out this particular pair here:
