The knowledge and technology that goes into running changes constantly, with both amateurs and professionals aspiring for a level of technology that offers them unparalleled levels of performance.Since the turn of the 21st century, studies conducted by several groups of leading scientists have shown that running barefoot naturally reduces your impact on the ground. Because barefoot running forces you to land on your mid-foot or fore-foot rather than your heel, your running becomes far more efficient, meaning that you incur far fewer injuries.For many, running barefoot seems incredibly unnatural, especially if you’ve been wearing trainers or running shoes for all your life. That’s why we stock a range of barefoot running shoe, catering for every taste and style.
Whether you’d prefer something that has the appearance of a running shoe or one of the Five Finger models, there’s something to suit your needs. With world leading brands such as Merrell and Vibram, we only stock the very best products on offer.
Have you been considering moving from the path to the dirt? In that case you may need trail shoes.
These specialist shoes are incredibly light, providing very good grip. Plus, with different levels of support available, we have the perfect option for you. When you’re running off the beaten track, uneven surfaces and obstacles like tree roots and dusty paths cause you problems that you wouldn’t usually encounter on road surfaces. The increased grip provided by trail running shoes helps you pass these obstacles with ease. Of course, the type of shoe you use comes down to your personal preference, but the different levels of support offered can help you immensely on your off-road run. Likewise, if water is involved at all, waterproof membrane options are available, which will ensure your feet are dry.
