The North Face Bargains

Today is the perfect example of one of those days where you are grateful that you own a raincoat. If you don't live in England, then it might not be raining...but if you do, and you don't have a waterproof jacket, you will be getting wet.

Take advantage of the reduced prices across our North Face range, find yourself a quality jacket to keep you bone dry in times like these. North Face jackets are so versatile that you can wear them hiking, climbing, cycling, running or simply for your commute to work or as your go to jacket to go out in. Comfortable, practical and timeless, everyone should invest in one in their life time.

A couple of our most popular pieces are the North Face women's VENTURE and its male counter part the North Face men's VENTURE. Make sure you grab yours before we sell out.

The North Face Men's VENTURE Jacket

If you're looking find a layer to stay warm underneath the rain shells why not pair up a jacket with some North Face mid-layers?

If you're sick of hearing about the rain, check out this video of Alex Honnold, a North Face athlete free solo-ing (climbing without a rope) El Sendero Luminoso (2500 feet) in Mexico .

Do you get pains in your feet despite having a perfectly fitting snowboard boot?

Do you get pains in your feet despite having a perfectly fitting snowboard boot?

After spending a significant amount of time in a shop tirelessly trying on the half size up and down to make the best fitting decision before sticking to one and getting it heat moulded to the shape of your feet - you've got the right fitting socks and by now you've used your boots enough times to safely say that you should have broken them in by now…yet that same ache accompanied by pins and needles makes an appearance halfway down the slope each time?

If this doesn’t sound familiar to you, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. For the rest of us, the reason for this could be due to your boots not adequately supporting the natural shape of the arches in your feet and therefore leading over-exertion which can cause aches and pains.

The good news is, this can easily be remedied with Superfeet insoles

Without getting too technical, pronation is the way your foot rolls inward when you walk. Some people have a neutral pronation whilst others overpronate or  underpronate. 

Overpronators, also known as individuals with 'flat feet' will find their ankle rolling inwards when striking the floor. These will generally need more stabilising and supportive insoles.
Underpronators usually have high arches and their feet will tend to roll outwards more than inward when their foot strikes the floor. They will generally get along better with neutral cushioned shoes. 

One way to tell which foot type you have is to look at the shoes you wear most often, the side that wears the fastest could be an indication.

Alternatively, when you step out of the shower and leave a footprint on your bath mat you can compare it to the above image to get an idea of what type of foot you have. 

Both over and under pronators are likely to experience muscle pains when running or doing other sports. Getting the right supports for your feet can alleviate a significant amount of pain, this of course applies to snowboarding as well. Have a look at our selection of Superfeet insoles, there are ones for each type of foot: low to medium archesmedium to high arches, and even merino wool lined ones for increased warmth and insulation. 

These arch supporting insoles by Superfeet can make all the difference to your day out on the slopes - definitely worth a shot if you suffer from aches from an otherwise perfect boot!
