  • Arahi 7 Review

    Looking for a new go-to sneaker? Hoka’s Arahi 7 just dropped, and it might be our new favorite shoe. These surprisingly-light stability sneakers aren’t like any others on the market. The biggest upgrade from the Arahi 6 is the new upper which we think not only looks better but also adds some great tech and comfort features. The lacing and zonally engineered, flat-knit upper allow your foot to stay down in the middle while having extra room in the toe box, creating a comfortable step. The lacing is also more adaptable with narrow feet, so they’re comfortable for all foot types. If you have a wider foot, we would suggest trying the Wide width since the upper can feel a bit more narrow, especially for longer distances.

    How Do You Know Your UGGs Fit?

     UGGs have been around for years, but thanks to social media and celebrity sightings, they’re currently taking the world by storm. Whether you’re new to the cozy footwear and loungewear or a longtime, loyal wearer, there might still be some things you don’t know about UGGs. 

    If you’re looking to get your first pair, you might be worried about sizing. If you’re ordering them online, remember that Classic UGGs run a bit big – if you wear a half size, size down.
