Minimalism Talk

With the advent of the popular novel Born to Run and recent barefoot papers in major scientific publications, everyone and their mother is all aflutter with the minimalism trend. Believe it or not major running companies have always had a foot (sorry for the pun) in the minimal game with racing flats; though as of late “barefoot” specific shoes have made their way into the major running shoe market. However with this seemingly new type of shoe comes risk of injury and an adjustment period.

To help you make a decision on whether or not to become a minimalist or if you have already choose to do so, but are finding yourself lost Movin Shoes is here to help. This upcoming Wednesday (7/28) following our weekly run Movin Shoes will be putting on a free clinic on the use and adaptation of minimal running footwear. We will go over the benefits and downsides with the use of shoes spanning from no shoe to traditional trainers.

Come join us for a group run at 6pm and immediately following (7pm) all the information on shoes and no shoes that you could ever want.

Consider this your facebook invite.

New Shoes, New Colors, Free Stuff?

Tomorrow evening at the Pacific Beach Store's Wednesday Night Run we will be giving out Strands backpacks and tote bags. For those who don't know about Strands, they are a website that meshes together the concepts of an online running log and social networking. Allowing one to track their workouts, while keeping everyone apprised of their daily exploits. They also have a great app that allows you to log your runs one your smart phone, as well as an upload platform for your Garmin.

On top of that the delivery trucks dropped off some sweet new shoes. We now have the new colors options in our M/W's Adizero Mana, Tempo, and Adios. And for our Mizuno Precision fans we just got in a shipment of the 11's. We also received new colors in other Mizuno shoes. Expect all these new colors to make their way to all the stores by the end of this week.
