Ever since the turn of the century, we’ve seen the concept of minimalist running really take shape. There’s a great degree of debate in the industry about exactly what form minimalist running takes, but many of the major brands are in agreement that running in barefoot shoes helps connect you with your body when you run, allowing you to experience the joys of natural movement. Ideal for running, fitness training, water sports and general walking, barefoot shoes will help make your feet healthier and stronger naturally. No matter whether you prefer the five finger variety or the traditional shape, we have the perfect option for you.
We’re proud to stock leading brands such as Merrell, Vibram Five Fingers and Vivobarefoot. So, improve your natural form today by making the barefoot transition. Remember, your feet contain 52 bones, 66 joints and 40 muscles; it’s important that you look after each and every one.
Thinking of making the move from the pavement to the trail? We have the shoe for you.
Trail running, or fell running as it’s sometimes called, involves running over a number of different types of terrain, with mud, water, hills, roots and rocks all commonplace. Due to this, most people (although not all) prefer to wear trail shoes, as they are incredibly light with outstanding grip. Different levels of support are available, meaning that there’s a shoe to suit every kind of trail. As you’d expect, waterproof membranes are also available, ensuring that your feet are kept dry even when you’re trekking across rivers and streams.We have a large range of footwear suitable for trail running, but we only stock leading names that you know you can trust, such as Merrell and The North Face.
