Icebreaker Merino Wool clothing – Spring/Summer 2016

An increasing number of runners, hikers and active travellers are using merino wool while exercising and when you first use this clothing it’s easy to see why. Devotees appreciate its warmth-to-weight ratio, soft feel and environmental sustainability, however it’s worth noting that not all merino is sourced ethically, with some still utilising the barbaric practice of ‘Mulesing’ - “where farmers painfully carve or clip chunks of flesh from lambs’ backsides.” Seriously, don’t Google the term to find out more as some of the photos I came across while researching ‘merino wool’ left me feeling physically and emotionally sick, and it’s inconceivable that companies still…

Anatom Sandwood MemoryFit Men’s Adventure Sandals

Recently I’ve been living in these Anatom sandals. My recent races – 3 Ultra marathons ranging from 60 miles to 120 miles and more recently a 7 ultra marathon in 7 days challenge – have been hard on my feet, tearing off my toenails or turning them black, bruising my soles and breaking the skin to the point where I felt I had to let fresh air get to them at every available opportunity. Wearing the sandals has allowed me, I believe, to heal faster. Whether I’ve worn them in…
