After Tim Tollefson‘s awesome win at Australia, I’m anxious to see how he does at UTMB against Kilian, Walmsley, Francois and the rest of the incredible elite field. He’s in shape and focused right now.

Help me out! If I’m not wearing running shoes, I’m wearing sandals. Seriously,  I couldn’t tell you the last time I wore real shoes, but the zero drop on most sandals is irritating my ill-tempered Achilles again so I’m looking for sandals with a drop.  Oofos are pretty good, but looking for more recommendations. The problem is, specs online don’t show heel/forefoot numbers for sandals, so I’m left with just looking at them and guessing. Tevas? Chacos? Spenco? Any ideas? Thanks!
