“Years ago, Altra founder Golden Harper began melting off outsoles and removing the excess heel elevation from their traditional running shoes. It was ugly, but it worked! The term ” ZERO DROP™” was coined to describe the level cushioning and perfect weight balance from heel to forefoot. This natural balance aligns the feet, back, and body posture for less impact. It also strengthens the Achilles and lower calf muscles that have been weakened over a lifetime of running on elevated heels.”

Once upon a time…Ted McDonald took off his shoes and started running. It inspired him to realize humans were perfectly adapted for running in their original equipment. He got fascinated with the history of running and solutions to running found all over the world. Following the “natural selection” of footwear in human cultures, he kept seeing the simple sandal crop up as “the solution” used by humans since prehistoric times up until now.

“Located in historic downtown Auburn, California, our success is marked by a return to the good old fashioned, hands-on customer service style of shop keeping lost in today’s impersonal, shopping mall-inspired approach to retail. Sit back and relax in our historical movie theater seats while we take personal care to find the best fitting shoe based on your foot type and training requirements.”
“Regardless of whether you are walking for exercise or to help raise money for a cure, training for your first 5K or ultramarathon, or just like wearing running shoes because they feel so darn good, our mission is to find the right fit so you can reach your goals and enjoy the journey.”

Drymax socks are the number 1 sock to keep feet dry. Used by many ultrarunners, the dual layer system moves moisture away from the foot with a super-hydrophobic (water hating) layer against the skin which mechanically moves moisture to the hydrophilic (water loving) reservoir wicking layer away from the foot breaking the blister cycle of heat, moisture and friction. Drymax socks are proudly made in the USA!

“In 1985 Ultimate Direction invented the entire category of hydration packs. We designed the first waist pack designed to carry bottles, a few years later created the first pack/strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, and made numerous other innovations that helped define what a hydration pack is today.”
“30 years later we are at the forefront again, having created and popularized the “vest” concept for carrying water, featuring no-bounce comfort and the ability to easily access bottles in the front. Now we are introducing the very first women’s-specific line of hydration packs, and have updated the whole product line with new technical fabrics, streamlined design, and contemporary colors.”
