Quick Look: After wearing these boots almost every day for the last 16 months, in a variety of conditions – garden, forest, town – I recommend them, with a few caveats.
In the summer, days get longer. Life slows down. Warm temperatures open the door to an abundance of outdoor activities. The increase in temperature reduces the amount of gear you need to enjoy the outdoors. With a good pair of minimalist shoes and little or no gear, your summer possibilities are endless.
Traditional shoes were not shaped around the shape of a human’s natural foot. Early hunters and gatherer obviously went barefoot or started to shroud the foot in floppy animal hides to protect the skin from the elements.
Feet have been a big issue for outdoor enthusiast and NFL athlete and Cooper Helfet, 29, who has played for Seattle and Oakland. He’s had two season-ending injuries, one to each foot. The first was a stress fracture to his right, later set with a pin; the second was a weight-lifting accident involving a 90-pound mass smashing his left, just last year.
Some days it’s all about the run. Others it’s all about after the run. When you’re looking for the latter, in Boulder there’s no better place to be than these inspiring après-activity spots. Come for the food, drinks and entertainment—and stay for the friends, old and new.
A lot of our customers wear Primal 2s for physical activity or working out, and sometimes we even hear of them wearing the Boulder Boots. But this one threw us for a loop, Jared Campanella ran an entire full trail MARATHON in his Nine2Fives!
