Running, hiking, and climbing should be about freedom. The beginning of freedom, however, is proper health, as without it no one can really live the life they wish. Merrell Barefoot’s line of boots and running shoes is built around the philosophy that proper support, comfort, and form can help maximize the health benefits, and thus freedom, that are derived from any athletic endeavor or workout. Based on advanced research into posture, locomotion, and materials, Merrell Barefoot’s footwear is therefore crafted in ways that encourage muscle development and a more natural stride.
To create the perfect athletic shoes, Merrell Barefoot has introduced a wide array of technologies and materials to the sports footwear market. Among these are an Aegis antimicrobial solution that’s applied to micro fiber footbeds to enhance odor resistance, EVA cushioned midsoles and forefront shock absorption plates for pressure distribution, and, as with the Pace line of running shoes, an Omni-fit lacing system that ensures a perfect fit.
Technology and design that are on the forefront of the footwear industry are only part of what makes Merrell Barefoot boots and running shoes gear that’s always capable of helping an athlete achieve peak performance. The secret to their success can also be attributed to the rugged, yet comfortable, materials they use to craft each of their products. These include nylon meshes that allow cool air to circulate over a runner’s foot and high quality, stretchable lycra that helps give Merrell Barefoot’s running shoes a comfortable yet stylish persona.
Whether it’s their line of rugged boots or foot-comforting and supporting running shoes, Merrell Barefoot’s product line is perfect for any woman who believes that staying healthy is the key to happiness.
