brian-bradshawHi, I’m Brian Bradshaw. I’m a super duper mega hiking enthusiast, with a love for everything that has to do with outdoors, hiking, gear, footwear and more.

I’ve lived all over the place, because I love travel and there’s no end to my love for just getting around. I currently live in Ventura, California. But you never know when that’s going to change.

Mission Statement

Over here at the Boot Bomb, I do my utmost best to write the most helpful reviews of all sorts of footwear. It started out with hiking only, but I soon expanded into reviewing other kinds of footwear, such as shoes for playing basketball, cross training, nursing shoes, shoes for standing up for long hours, working shoes, etc.

I go out of my way to make sure that the information I provide you with is correct. If you read something on my site that is incorrect, please let me know right away. When I discover erroneous information, I always correct it straight away!

The Boot Bomb has grown a lot. That’s why I am now relentlessly increasing the quality of my pages. This website must become an authority site that does hands lots of hands on reviews all the time, keeping up to date with all the latest products!

Operating Principles

The Boot Bomb aims to be in full compliance with the ToS of all its advertising partners, as well as with Google’s webmaster guidelines.

If you are reading this and represent a party with whom I am somehow not in compliance, please contact me about it. I always resolve incidents in a friendly way.


Since I have set up a contact page, I have received lots of email from people asking me questions and advice. I have also received a number of very nice compliments, leading me to become even more motivated to write more and more on this website.

I thank all of those who have taken the time to contact me personally. I won’t name names, but you all know who you are. Due to the fact that the Boot Bomb (and by extension: me) has fans, I currently feel very motivated to expand my website with many more useful reviews!

Do you want to ask me something? Do you want to give me a few handy tips? Got some nifty advice? Wanna set something straight? Got a question about anything you read on the Boot Bomb? Don’t like my haircut?

Feel free to contact me for anything that you have in mind.


  1. Hi Brian,
    What a site! Wow, I am thoroughly impressed and plan on using it as my “go to”. I have been doing a lot of independent research as my partner’s feet are narrow and very thin on the top. She needs a good arch support and has done well with Keen Targhees, Lowas, Oboes. We are looking for a really stable footbed, arch support and possibly ankle support for a shoe that she can wear around the house like a slipper-style. I have read your slipper reviews and found them very helpful. I am hoping to find something supportive on the footbed with a little higher ankle support like a pull on boot might give. Have you any feedback on the Keen Detroit? My hope is that if she has an easy pull-on style boot, she will slip into it and find it comfy and easy to use. I think thats one of the things we love about slippers is that we can just almost walk into them….Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks for any input and again for your fabulous research and sharing!


    • Hi Ellen,

      Thanks for the kind compliments. You’ve completely made my day!

      You’re probably talking about this slipper review. If you liked my slippers page, you might also like my pages on:

      They’re all kind of similar in the way that you can easily slip in and out of them. Some of those hiking sandals and water shoes have pretty high ankle support.

      Every piece of footwear that I review on the Boot Bomb is of good quality and receives good reviews. I just don’t want to bother my readers with sub par quality footwear, so it’s hard to go wrong with any of my advised footwear.

      Please have a look at my suggested pages and let me know if you need more help!
