AD: Keep Your Feet Comfy and Dry with LOOM

I am still not quite ready to let go of summer, but we are heading towards Autumn at speed and it will soon be time to pack my trusty sandals away.

The Major Difference Between Running and Walking Shoes, And Why It Matters

Any walker knows that, when your walking shoes are used up, and it is time to replace them, you will need to bear several things in mind.
