While the Boot Bomb is mostly about footwear and gear for the noble sport of hiking, there are many other kinds of activities for which a person will need to have good footwear on their feet in order to get the best from him or herself.

For instance, if you are a basketball player, you are going to need shoes that will help you jump higher. Not everybody is 7 feet tall, so you can use some extra lift in your jumps when you’re making those slam dunks. And I haven’t even mentioned the landing.

It could also be, that you are a skateboarding aficionado. If that’s the case, odds are that you’ll be wanting to do some ollies, backflips, pop shove-its and pop melons and whatnot. Obviously, you’re going to need shoes that will be able to withstand the punishment you deal out to them when you are sliding your shoes against the grip material on the top of your board.

Let’s say you’re a cross trainer. First of all, good for you! A cross trainer can be anything… it can be a runner who also lifts weights. A cyclist, who also swims. Or a pole vaulter, who also goes fishing. Just kidding about that last one, ofcourse! But all jokes aside, x-trainers are in dire need of a well rounded shoe that is able to withstand whichever training regime said cross trainer has put together for him or herself.

It’s also possible that you are a nurse, who walks and stands around in a hospital for 12 hours a day, with gruelling 6 day work weeks. If that is the case, then first of all… hats off to you, sir or ma’am. Second of all, you’re absolutely going to need darn good footwear if you are going to last for decades doing this work.

Whichever applies to you… the Boot Bomb’s got a good shoe for everybody. And that’s why I would like to cordially invite you to have a look at the following ‘various footwear’ reviews of mine:

Did I miss your personal favorite? Did I get something horribly wrong?

Let me know what you think!

      My son recently told me about graphene. I googled it and here I am. I’m looking forward to seeing more articles about this awesome gear!

        Hi Patti,

        Thanks for the feedback. Graphene shoes are just now hitting the market. I will have to review a bunch soon!

    i have 2 questions: (1) I am looking for a road running shoe, please can you recommend a graphene pair? (2) i currently run around 80-100 kilometers a week. my shoes start to show significant wear and tear on the treading within the first month, however, my understanding is that they will now last considerably longer BUT the actual canvas of the shoes tend to get holes as well, so its all very well if the treading is in tact and the shoe can last for so much longer but what is the point if the shoes is falling apart everywhere else???

      Hi Jacqui,

      There’s only one way to find out if graphene shoes are worth it, and that’s by actually trying one out. I’d go with the Inov-8 F-Lite 235 V3 myself.

      Graphene shoes are relatively new. Could be that the manufacturing process for creating these still needs to be refined. Graphene might take a long time to come to the market, but based on my research… I still believe in its future.
