Health Benefits from MERRELL BAREFOOT Running Shoes Collection

By Miong - Tuesday, March 15, 2011

People love being barefoot because it creates a connection with nature and what they’re doing.  But, since most people aren’t willing to walk to work, hike a trail or ride a bike completely barefoot and since most restaurants and shops won’t let you in completely barefoot, this new collection is ideal for people who are looking for that connection. Remember the scene in Pretty Woman where Julia Roberts makes Richard Gere take his shoes off and walk around in the grass?
MERELL® is proud to announce a new partnership with Vibram®; exclusively collaborating to introduce a complete Barefoot Collection of shoes in the outdoor category. 
Basically, we’re putting together a collection of minimalist, lightweight, versatile and efficient footwear that will be available in the Philippines Summer Months-April 2011 with an entire category of barefoot shoes that lets your feet lead you into your outdoor passion of choice.

MERRELL BAREFOOT Collection of Running Shoes: Men’s: Trail Glove, True Glove & Tough Glove; Ladies: Pace Glove, Power Glove & Pure Glove,

Health Benefits with MERRELL BAREFOOT Collection.
A lot of people aren’t sure what the hoopla surrounding barefoot running and activity is all about. Think of it this way - these new shoes will help create a more natural stride by moving you away from the heel and encouraging forward momentum, where you land at mid foot.  This all makes for lower impact, and a more aligned and efficient gait. AND you get some health benefits wrapped in there.
Because most people are so used to walking/running/moving with their heel striking first, this design will stimulate different muscles, helping to strengthen your core and agility.  The whole idea that what you put on your feet - be it to hike, bike, run, walk the dog or just grab a coffee - can help improve your health and body is pretty awesome.
All Collection is super lightweight and versatile shoes that can take you from the trail to walking around town. All which follow Merrell’s belief of Performance Made Beautiful.  Because we believe that shoes can fit incredibly well AND look good at the same time.
