    Feelgrounds Courtside – my full review of these barefoot shoes

    Published by Finn Hayden I love barefoot shoes, and I'm not the only one - every team member here at You Well owns at least one pair of barefoot shoes. I'm now at the point where I don't own any "normal" shoes (I've recycled or donated everything else). Up to this point, I'd only tried a couple of barefoot shoe brands including Vivobarefoot and Freet. I've been pretty impressed and delighted with those. But recently, I had the chance to try a pair of Feelgrounds Courtside barefoot shoes, and I've been blown away by how great they are. This is a brand that is quickly growing in popularity here in…

    Is it worth buying a dryrobe? Our honest thoughts

    Published by Finn Hayden We're big fans of the beach and we love to get in the sea, either for a swim or on our paddleboard. The sea is usually freezing here in the UK, and while we don't mind getting into the cold water, it's the coming out of the water which is usually the worst part.   Having a product like a changing robe is a total game-changer for situations like this - being able to cover yourself in something which is warm and waterproof is exactly what you want when you get out of cold water. The Dryrobe has emerged as the leading brand of changing robe…

    10 changing robes that we think are better than a dryrobe
