We reported a couple of months ago that Fivefingers had taken Hollywood by storm with the likes of Scarlet Johansson, Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Hudson being papped in them, now Vibram's Barefooters have the royal seal of approval with the news that non other than Prince Harry has purchased a pair while out in San Diego. Barefooting has well and truly entered the mainstream!
The whole concept of barefoot running is to make you feel more 'at one' with your surroundings (without sounding too pretentious there). Not only that but it reverts you back to a more natural running style, which is said to improve your gait and make impact and running injuries less of an occurance, so everyone's a winner!
As well as Vibram Fivefingers, we're also stocking Merrell's Barefoot range, which have more of a classic trainer look, but still pack in everything you'd expect in a barefooting shoe.
