Hiking & Biking & Running…Oh Merrell

There’s a great get-fit trend going on, thanks to the initiatives from the First Lady’s fight to help end obesity and images of celebs, like Scarlett Johansson, rocking barefoot running shoes while training for Avengers last year. We’re seeing more current outdoor activities from celebs, like Orlando Bloom, Jessica Biel and Amanda Seyfried hiking Runyon Canyon Park in LA and Tobey Maguire, Pink and Carey Hart and Naomi Watts biking with their children. It all equates to having a more active lifestyle, and as the temperature increases, you may find yourself ready to move your fitness routine outside. As the desire to participate in more outdoorsy activities like running, camping and hiking increases, you’re naturally going to need the correct shoes.

Henna Flat Sandal Barefoot Water River Glove

One of the hottest outdoor fitness shoe trends is the barefoot shoe. These shoes enable you to be closer to your terrain (whether it’s land or water), bring out your natural stride and build greater strength and endurance. For those of you who are not quite comfortable with the barefoot shoe, Merrell has great options to help ease you in. Hike a watery trail as your feet stay firmly and flatly on the ground with the Barefoot Water River Glove; stimulate your senses and strengthen your muscles with the Lithe Mary Jane Glove, improve your balance as you walk in the Wonder Glove, and get amazing all-day comfort in the very stylish and shock absorbing Henna Flat Sandal.
