    Mt. Lukens Barefoot in the Snow




    Erwan Le Corre and I climbed the highest mountain within the city limits of Los Angeles, Mt. Lukens at 5074 feet, on the 10th. About halfway up we found ourselves in the snow...barefoot. We continued on to the summit barefoot and shirtless. After a break at the summit, we dressed warmer, put on our FeelMax Niesa footwear and headed down. About 3 hours and 30 minutes. 8.8 miles round trip.

    The back country of Los Angeles...different than you expected?

    Ocean in the distance, downtown LA to the left

    Le Corre sprinting near the summit...see barefoot prints?

    FeelMax footwear a welcome relief after climbing up barefoot.

    Our trail about halfway up...and it only got deeper as we advanced.

    Excellent feedback through sole - good for balance feel

    Howdy Folks

    I am testing out a new shoe from a family owned company in Finland called FeelMax.

    See www.feelmax.com (not yet available in the USA)

    UPDATE 12/08/09, NOW AVAILABLE IN THE USA, CLICK HERE

    I have the latest version shipped to me directly from their factory in Thailand.

    I am VERY impressed with this shoe and will be writing more in the coming
    weeks.

    The version I have has a 1 mm thick sole made out of a Kevlar impregnated material developed by Continental for FeelMax. Amazing stuff.

    Mine are VERY easy to get on and off. The feeling is amazingly close to barefoot. 1mm sole is very thin and very durable.

    Happy.
