First off, let me say, I’m not one for endorsements. I’m not particularly interested in hocking products I don’t believe in, just for a paycheck. Not that I have high standards, I just would rather spend my time doing something I love.
Let me back up and give you an abbreviated preface to the point I’m trying to make.
Last year I packed a backpack and left. I left everything. (I’m currently writing about the process of leaving and why it in detail in my forthcoming memoir called “The Air I Breathe”). When, after six months abroad, I surprised myself by being back on US soil, I promptly wrote to the shoe company whose shoes I had wore every single day and said “Thanks for making a great pair of shoes”.
They wrote back and asked, “Would you mind saying this on camera?”
I said, “Sure!”
And in Video:
I love these shoes. Seriously. I’m not being paid to say this.
The Moral of the story is: If you find a product that works, that performs and that exceeds your expectations, WRITE TO THE COMPANY AND TELL THEM!
You never know what will happen.
