I have a membership at REI which pays me yearly dividends and this year my check was for 67.00. I found a pair of Vasques that are awesome. They were originally 100.00, but were reduced to 59.00...I made off like a bandit on this. :)
They are trail runners and are oh so beautiful. I can't wait to get on a trail somewhere and try them out. I've been wearing them and they are incredibly comfortable. So now I have a light weight pair of hiking shoes for summer, and heavier boots for winter. This is exciting stuff for me...it's like Christmas!
