If you are in need of new running shoes, we’ve got the perfect pair to help you smash your #goals.
Minimalist running kicks have been all the rage for some time. And we totally understand why. The second-skin feel is attractive, and many say that such shoes boost your overall performance. But if you’ve always been using regular trainers, transitioning from more cushioned models to a pair that mimics running barefoot can be a huge shock to your running style.
The solution? Footwear that has the best of both worlds. This means it has additional cushioning while maintaining some of the principles of minimalism, such as increased flexibility and lightweight materials.
