I purchased these for water aerobics class on this site. The negative reviews regarding the traction (and safety) made me hesitate a long while before purchasing them but they are EXACLY what I’m looking for in a water shoe for class — a flat/mary jane style shoe that would give me some traction and protect my feet and toes from the rough pool floor. But I wanted something light and flexible so I didn’t feel like I was wearing sneakers in the pool. They’re a good brand and the price is excellent for water shoes. They feel great — skin tight but comfortable. They stay on my feet underwater and out. The insoles are removable (and yet not a bother while I’m working out). They dry really fast too. There are great water shoes! I LOVE them!I wear a standard 7.5 shoe but I ordered the 7.0 thanks to the helpful reviews and they fit perfect. I got them in Ocean Blue and the color was just like it was pictured.Regarding their slipperiness: Any shoe used on a wet surface that is flat (and shiny), like tile, will be slippery, even sneakers and bare feet. My club’s pool has cement-like floor but has some line tiles as well and the shoe still gives me traction on those. Even walking across the basketball court or the tiled floor in the locker room, they feel rubbery and I feel traction across the floors. Of course I walk carefully, you’re supposed to when you’re dripping water onto the floor you’re walking on.Here’s some additional product information I found helpful on another site (swimoutlet), not listed here.Speedo Amphibious Beach RunnerSimple and sweet, these sturdy mesh water shoes are so light and comfortable they will soon feel like an extension of your feet! Perfect for water aerobics and around-the-pool safety.* Durable TPR outsole for maximum traction* Quick-adjust Velcro D-ring closure* non-marking outsole* Mesh construction allows for instant drainage* water shoes provide protection for feet and traction when walking. As with any footgear, please use caution when walking on a wet and slippery surface.
It very well could be real, but for now itís the latest heart-pounding fiction book, Sledgehammer, about a terrorist who arrives in the ER with smallpox symptoms. An ER physician suspects it but has just six days to convince hospital executives and the U.S. Government before an epidemic breaks out.The story is brought vividly to life by Dr. Paulo J. Reyes who obtained his MD at the UCSF School of Medicine, has 25 years in medicine and internal medicine and is a First Responder for the busiest cities in California specifically in terrorists training. In Sledgehammer, the lead character, Max Kroose, an intuitive emergency room physician, believes terrorists are to blame for the attack and fears the more lethal form of smallpox, called Sledgehammer, will kill within days. As time progresses, the terrorists planned attacks at a sports arena, mall and airport must be stopped. The question becomes can this ER doctor convince the hospital administration and the public health care system about the presence of this deadly disease and the need to vaccinate the American public. You wonít be able to stop reading as you seek to find out the truth in this non-stop thriller. How big a threat is smallpox? ìThe Federal Government should allow voluntary smallpox vaccinations to protect us from smallpox bioterrorist attacks,î says Dr. Reyes. ìAt the very least the Federal Government should allow voluntary vaccinations of the first responders which should include all hospital medical staff. The President and the military have been vaccinated. Why shouldnít the American public?îDr. Reyes also authored Health-Care Reform or Redistribution of Cost? and in his research of the health care system, he has seen its shortcomings. Realizing there is clear and present danger of a terrorist attack in the health care system has prompted him to support voluntary smallpox vaccinations.The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) considers smallpox as a possible danger and includes it as one of the possible agents of a bioterrorist attack, in its website under the subheading Emergency Preparedness and Response along with anthrax, plague, and tularemia.Reyes believes the Federal Government should consider a trial program to detect the presence of the virus ñ similar to a pregnancy test ñ so if the disease presents itself, it will be detected before it becomes an epidemic or pandemic.The American public is immuno-naÔve to smallpox, which means it could spread very rapidly, Reyes says. And containment could be even more difficult or impossible if the virus was aerosolized, which the CDC believes may be the case, he says.With new terrorist attacks continually happening in the United States and the fear of a global pandemic, Sledgehammer is a gripping book to get a real insight into what could possibly lie ahead unless immediate action is taken.
Friends recommended these after I complained about not finding shoes that worked well and lasted. I about had a heart attack at paying $90 for sandals. They’re worth every penny and I’ve ordered my second pair.I live on a cruising sailboat in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico. My husband and I love to hike and try to hike for two to three hours a day when we’re in an anchorage– starting in the water as we wade ashore, across the beach and up to the peak of the nearest hill. Desert hiking, over sand, dirt and rocks of various sizes. In towns, we go all over on dirt and paved roads and sidewalks. Temperatures are typically in the mid-90’s. Prior to getting a pair of Keens, I’ve never had a sandal or shoe — even sneakers or hiking boots — last more than three months; I’ve even had them fail on the second day of wearing them — and these have been name-brand, expensive shoes marketed for this sort of activity. The biggest problem has been that the layers of the sole have separated, although there have been other problems as well.In contrast, my Keen Newport H2’s are still wearable after 8 months and about 1,000 miles on them. That’s not a typo — about one thousand miles (I log our hikes and estimated the town miles). They are starting to show wear in the tread, some stitching is pulling out and the webbing is just beginning to stretch in the heels. Note that while we’ve been over some rough terrain, I haven’t taken them backpacking or true rock climbing. I’d guesstimate that half my use has been desert hiking, a quarter on beaches and dirt roads and the rest on pavement and concrete. Click Here for more information on these sandals.Several things that I like:– They can go from wading in the water to scrambling over rocks with no problem. They dry quickly and don’t cause blisters when wet.– Heat hasn’t caused them to fall apart as has happened with every other brand I’ve had (layers of the soles coming apart, etc.).– Where the stitching pulled out could easily be re-sewn with just a needle and dental floss — very FIELD REPAIRABLE!– The toe guard is wonderful.– The footbed and straps work to give you solid footing and support.– The webbing does not stretch and cause the fit to become sloppy.– They hold up well to all sorts of abuse.– No smell!!
I also recommend checking out this shop if you are interested in purchasing a pair of these sandals.
Throughout the years, different styles of sunglasses come and go. Sometimes metal frames are more popular than traditional plastic frames. The sizes and shapes of the frames will also vary. One of the latest popular fashions is to wear wooden sunglasses. They come in a variety of styles and patterns from Haystack, Ashland, and Govy. Many of them are harvested from plantations specifically cultivated for the production of sunglass frames. If you would like to see how you look in wooden sunglasses, find a store that sells them in your area and see how these attractive grain patterns look on you.
western straw hats and western boots are my favorite fashion items in terms of the western style. I am a big fan of western fashion even though I did no grow up in a farm, a barn or suburb area. For a city girl like me, I love everything about the western days. Although I must say that the ones that really have a soft spot for me are the western straw hats and western boots. I love the authentic and strong quality of the western boots, especially the brown and red colored ones. As for the western straw hats, I love it when they come in vibrant designs and white or light brown color. Combining the two western outfits are the real deal for me.
First of all, this ring looks sweet. I had been looking for a while for such a ring. There are very few black rings, even fewer that have a nice rectangular onyx in the center. When I received the product, I got exactly what I ordered/expected. I’m always working with my hands, picking up something, showing it to someone, explaining something. Or pointing some direction, or what have you. And so far the only problem is I end up having to repeat myself because they start talking about it “Yea it’s sweet, now tell me what I just said to you.” “Uhhhhhh”Like others have said, it’s black on black, not really gray. I got my finger sized, a 12, and the ring fits as snugly as the sizing tool did.Other reviews have said that the stone fell out. I’m kinda waiting on for it to happen so that I can just glue it back in and not have to worry about it. Not a deal breaker for me really… I’ll update if it happens. More great mens rings for sale right here everyone!For the 30 bucks or so, I wish I went and paid for faster shipping, so I could have had it sooner. It made a sharp contrast to a white watch I bought, but the watch broke. Now its a bold extension to my new black watch. Check out some more info on this really cool ring.Where the stone is it measures something like 10mm, and at the thinnest part of the band its close to 7mm.
Confused as the sizing information says Hot from Hollywood…I went to the Maui Ripper site to see if they had more info on sizing as I was undecided but really liked these board shorts.

Let me just say I am not an expert on knives. I’ve seen a few reviews that get very detailed and very critical of the blades on this site. You can not expect a hand made folded steel high carbon blade for under 20$ and if you do expect that you will never find it. You also can not compare a finely made high priced blade to a 20$ blade.That being said, this is a very nice knife for the price.I wish there were other images of this knife so you can get a true idea of what you’re going to get. The fancy scrolling that you can see in the image seems almost like an iron type of etching, and the handle is flat, for some reason i though it would be round.Mine, at least, had slight, i say slight flaws. There’s a little gap where the three pieces of steel come together to make the handle. It’s less then a millimeter but you notice it. it’s not bothersome to me i’m just saying.What i love about this knife is it is all steel, it’s heavy but not burdensome, and the blade itself is one piece that runs into the center of the handle. I haven’t sharpened it yet, i still need to find a sharpener that isn’t too expensive, so i can’t speak to how sharp you can get it. I don’t want to be able to shave with it but i do want it sharp.I bought this knife and a different one at the same time. I like this one better and this one was the cheaper of the two. It’s solid, it’s nice looking and it’s cheap. Both of the knives i bought were made in china, as are most of the knives being sold everywhere, so if that’s a deal breaker for you now you know. Really Nice knife shop where i buy my knives.If you’re a picky type or looking for a collectors item, buy local and stop leaving bad reviews on perfectly good low priced stuff just because you didn’t read the review and look for alternative images online to understand what you’re getting.

Nice looking hiking shop. This is my third pair of this boot. I really like this boot. Fits very well around my foot. It’s stable around my ankle. The toe protection is outstanding for light duty dirt kicking, but not steel toe. The waterproof is somewhat true, my foot doesn’t get wet, but after walking in a few puddles of water or wet lawns I do feel an increase of moisture (not water) around my foot, which is awkward.I didn’t have any issues with the first pair, and I was very happy to be able to purchase my second pair. The second pair was great at first, and I would give the boot 5 stars if it weren’t for one issue.1. Some of the treads on the bottom of the boot come dislodged, but they don’t completely fall off. They dangled on pair number two within a relatively short time after purchasing, I could have returned them, but this issue didn’t affect my ability to use the boot, so it wasn’t worth my time.The third pair (currently for this review) is holding up well. However I noticed the strap that you use to pull your boot on at the back of the shoe with the reflection material, is stitched opposite from the other shoe, which is maybe why this shoe cost less at the time I purchased. More info on these boots.When you build a product you should try and perfect it and I believe Keen was on their way to perfecting this shoe, which is why I purchased my second pair. The quality control is not there and if they can figure that part out, then this would be a 5 star boot, I thought they would have improved their quality control with pair number 3. Again these are all minor issues. My biggest concerns are fit and how well these shoes hold up to 10 hour days, they do well and last several months. Awesome selection of hiking boots are on click away.
