If your out on your camping trip and do a little hiking like most of us it can be a strenuous activity. However, I have stumbled across a brand of shoes that will add a little energy to your stride. The brand of shoe is called Gravity Defyer. This is how it works. There is a large spring inside the shoe that propels you forward as you hike. Now that’s a good idea. I haven’t actually bought a pair yet but I intend to give them a try.
They say the spring will absorb harmful shocks. This may not pertain so much to hiking since your not really running but I'm sure it would be great for runners. Come to think of it if you have to do some jumping from one rock to another or down from a large outcrop it could protect your joints and legs. They are a little expensive somewhere around $120 or so. However, her is is a link for Gravity Defyer coupon codes . If they really work well I would probably pay extra for the shoes since they are not that far off in terms of price from a good pair of regular hiking shoes. Another cool thing is that they provide a ventilation system. When you step down on the shoe the spring pushes air into a holding chamber that then ventilates the air out through the rest of the shoe. Pretty neat.
I would be a little worried that the added height in the back could mess with your posture a little. I'm just not sure if it would really matter or not. Speaking of height they also add a few extra inches to your stature because the spring is about that tall.
I wish I could report on this shoe based on experience of wearing it around the hiking trail for a few days because that would really be the clincher. As they say the proof is in the pudding. I'm very picky when it comes to buy and wearing show so if it could pass my test then I could give it a thumbs up. I may go out on a limb and buy a pair and then report back as to what I think about the shoes. I'm not to worried about doing this since they have a 30 day money back gurantee.
