After having some back problems a little over a year ago, I switched to ‘barefoot’ style footwear after reading the 4 Hour Body.  I’ll never wear ‘high heels’ again for walking or running!

After trying a few minimalist/barefoot styles (Sanuk among others), I’ve become a fan of Olukai shoes for their comfort and durability- the only drawback is the price.

A fellow Fed saw my shoes and asked where I bought them.  This pair I had bought at REI because I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket.

He mentioned to try GovX.com for a ~40% discount.  What a great site!  They have all kinds of stuff there, from Alpinestars to Zamst.  Eligibility for GovX is open to Feds, Active Military, and Vets.

If you have a current .mil email address, use it for instant registration (don’t worry, you only give the .mil address for registration- you can still give your webmail address for communication. I did and have not been spammed by GovX yet).   If you don’t have a .mil address there is a method to upload a copy of your DD214 to gain access to their catalog.

Happy Bargain Hunting!
