Want to run “barefoot”? SB now has Merrell Glove shoes

Merrell Trail GloveMerrell barefoot shoes have arrived at Sports Basement! Recently people have been turning more and more to footwear that mimics being barefoot. With that in mind, Merrell created the Barefoot Collection. They partnered with Vibram to bring you a shoe that is the next best thing to being barefoot: super lightweight, flexible, low profile, and stylish. That’s the collection in a nutshell, but that’s not all you get from these shoes. Merrell says their Barefoot Collection helps strengthen your feet and legs, re-align your posture and stimulate your senses.

We have the Trail Glove for men and the Pace Glove for women now in stock at all four stores. (And yes, we also carry Born to Run if you want to learn more about barefoot running.)

The staff here at Sports Basement is ready to assist you with fit and training advice because we want the best for you. That means getting the most out of your purchases at the store and, most importantly, not getting hurt in new product. That’s why we think it’s very important that these types of shoes be worn for only a small percentage of training. They are not intended to be replacements for your normal everyday running shoes.  People with no barefoot training experience should start with 5-10% of their weekly mileage in barefoot shoes.
