Finally, its here , Fit Feet Ireland. Fit Feet are an online retailer for the Vibram Five Fingers product. The company was brought to fruition in 2010 after it was announced that Barefoot running was about to hit Ireland and in a way the country has never seen.
Until recently ( in Ireland anyway ) there were only two times that anyone ever considered running barefoot, on the beach, and the other as if you were to have interrupted a burglar in the dead of night and was chasing him down the street in your dressing gown, wielding a cricket bat. That was until now.
Running barefoot has numerous advantages:
•Strengthens Muscles in the feet and lower legs.
•Improves range of motion in ankles and toes.
•Stimulates Neural function important to balance and agility.
•Eliminates heel lift to align the spine and improve posture.
Vibram offers a wide range in different models for different sports, from the Vibram KSO ( keep stuff out ) used for light gym work, to the Vibram Bikila used for outdoor running. Also, they have catered to the outdoor enthusiast with the Vibram KSO Trek. Soon to launch the Komodo and Trek Sport, which are two exciting new models for 2011.
To mark this, Founder of fitfeet.ie , Graham O’ Shaughnessy announces that for being an Irish Retailer for this exciting new product Fit Feet would like to offer up to 15% across the entire range on the website until 20th January to get the ball rolling.
We hope you enjoy the website and look forward to seeing a new era within the running community in Ireland.
The Fit Feet Team.
