Join us for a Barefoot running chat with Oakley Gardner a minimalist local Merrell Athlete on March 30th

Barefoot running, really? Well almost, we should say minimalist running. Vibram Five Finger shoes and now Merrell have made a shoe that allows you to get back to your more primitive side. Learn more about the new craze and if it for you. The trend has been growing and now the styles and colors of the shoes are not as “funny” looking, some might even call them cute. Especially the Pink Bikila Vibram Fivefinger versions (we also carry the women’s KSO and the Sprint Fivefinger Vibram styles) and the new Merrell designs will be in soon.

Tune up your stride, tune up your adventure. Discover an all-new way to hike, run and play. If you think you can’t get more out of your walks, runs or hikes, think again. Merrell Barefoot can help tune up your stride and turn on your adventure. Discover how to stimulate your senses and awareness, develop stronger muscles and find a more balanced posture in the shoe designed to move you. Merrell Athlete, Oakley Gardner a barefoot running local yogi will be giving a brief talk about barefoot running. Please RSVP to events@outdoordivas.com

Oakley Gardner has lived in Boulder for 16 years, having moved from Ontario, Canada. She is the Personal Training Manager at Colorado Athletic Club, an elite level personal trainer, running coach, yoga instructor and esthetician.

Oakley has followed many passions through her life; most recently she has become an accomplished distance runner. Oakley completed 5 ultra-marathons in 2010 and finished the season by joining Micah True, A.K.A. Caballo Blanco, in the Copper Canyons of Mexico for a 10-day solo trail-running adventure.

Oakley has always believed that our bodies perform to their best potential when we keep things simple. This is true for our nutrition, our training and our relaxation. Oakley believes that her foundation in yoga, her knowledge of human ergonomics, and her use of minimalist footwear have facilitated her running achievements.
