Shoes for Barefoot Runners
Barefoot Athlete is an online shop dedicated to helping people to become effective barefoot runners with a good running form. Our objective is to help you to transition from heel striking to an effective running style based upon forefoot striking. We sell barefoot shoes from a wide range of brands that will help you on this journey but they will require an effort from you to learn to change your running form to one that will be kind to your body and minimise the risk of injury. The range includes Merrell, New Balance, VIVOBAREFOOT and Vibram FiveFingers. Our most popular shoes include the Merrell Trail Glove and New Balance Minimus
The choice can see a bit overwhelming so please do not hesitate in giving us a call and talking through your needs so that we can help you decide on shoes that best suit you. You will find that we offer some shoes with zero heel lift and minimal cushioning that are best suited experienced barefoot runners who have already developed a good running technique. Other shoes have a modest amount of heel raise and greater cushioning that are better suited to people starting out who have yet to develop their technique.
To assist you with the transition to a good running form we have two ways in which we can help you:
