In episode 021, Mark and Xeni share their current favorite footwear, Native Jefferson shoes and Fit Flops, and Jason talks about his modern retro motorcycle helmet, the Bell Bullitt TT.
Native Jefferson shoes ($42)
I either go barefoot or wear my Native Jefferson rubber shoes. No socks required, and they are great for getting through TSA security without a hassle.
Fit Flop ($45 and up)
A line of shoes for women and men that offer extreme comfort and excellent support for folks like me who walk a lot. “Beautiful shoes that are ergonomically optimized and bio-mechanically engineered to make the wearer feel fantastic, because your feet shouldn’t get in the way of your dreams.”
Bell Bullitt TT Motorcycle Helmet ($400)
I’ve been riding with the Bell Bullitt for nearly a year and really love both how this helmet fits and looks!
