DeFeet Running and Cycling Socks Review

When running, cycling, or doing any other exercise, it's nice to give your feet a little TLC. They take a lot from us, especially with weight-bearing activities. Good socks with good shoes are a fantastic combination, and I am happy to introduce you all to DeFeet and their line of socks today. But don't think that's all they have! They have lots of other running and cycling gear too! And they were named Business of the Year (2011) in North Carolina!

I was sent a complimentary pair of the Aireator and D-Evo pictured below to review.

I loved the Aireator. It's so comfortable, lightweight, and breathable, not to mention stylish. It's a cycling sock built by cyclists for cyclists, and it was the first product that launched DeFeet and today its still the workhorse of the DeFeet line. I also love that this sock is made from COOLMAX® EcoMade, an eco-friendly polyester that comes from recycled plastic bottles.

I was equally impressed with the D-Evo! The extra cushion was fantastic. This sock is truly built for a runner with mid-foot support and sculpted forefoot and heel padding. There's even a soft, padded tab at the lower Achilles tendon. Like the Aireator, this sock is also made from recycled resources and certified COOLMAX® EcoMade to help wick moisture and keep feet dry, even during the most demanding conditions.

These socks are reliable, comfortable, and perfect for runners, cyclists, and more! You should definitely check them out.

RAYGUN Shirt Review

Have you heard of RAYGUN? Do you live in the Iowa or the Midwest? If so, you need to know this company, and I am very happy to be able to tell you more about RAYGUN today. RAYGUN sells hilarious and unique t-shirts and other products. According to their website, "The company's goals remain unchained: create stuff that makes people laugh, save America from 10,000 years of darkness, and find a way to get out of this t-shirt thing and into something like pharmaceuticals or petroleum." Lol - I think those are great goals. ;-)

Originally from Iowa, I am especially fond of this company's many Iowa-themed products (don't worry, they've got other states covered too!).  I was sent the "Heaven" t-shirt to review, and it is pictured below.

I rate this shirt a 10 of 10. I love the design (If you haven't watched Field of Dreams, do yourself a favor and do) and the soft, comfortable fabric. I couldn't ask for more in a t-shirt.
