Go Green Get Fit Sponsor Spotlight PlanetShoes.com – Barefoot edition

We are coming to the end of the 12 week Go Green Get Fit Challenge. Seriously where has the time gone?  Last month we featured Planet Shoes reviews from our Go Green Get Fit Bloggers. Our fantastic sponsor Planet Shoes has offered another $100 Gift Card to giveaway to our lucky readers!  Below you will find our next set of Planet Shoe reviews focusing on barefoot or minimalist footwear.

If you are wondering what the heck barefoot or minimalist footwear is let me tell you that I too was confused and just thought it was those shoes with the toes until I searched through the Planet Shoes website and saw all the different styles they offer.

Barefoot is best because it’s the way nature intended us to move. With 200,000 nerve endings, 33 major muscles, 28 bones, 19 ligaments; the human foot is a biomechanical masterpiece. Minimalistic footwear helps encourage us to move the way evolution intended: barefoot. Brands like Merrell, Kigo, Jambu, and VIVOBAREFOOT have created collections that work with the body, not against it. Get back to the basics. Run and walk naturally using the technology you were born with.

Several of our Go Green Get Fit Bloggers have been using barefoot footwear from Planet Shoes and have this to say about their experience:

Laura from Pug in the Kitchen tried out Merrell’s Pace Glove shoes in a variety of different scenarios including a short street run, a cardio class and at home circuits. Read more…

Sarah from Mindfully Frugal Mom really wanted a pair of truly multipurpose sneakers that she could use to do EVERYTHING in. She didn’t want to purchase separate shoes for hiking, water sports, and running. She picked the VivoBarefoot Breatho Trail. Read more…

Katherine from Safe Mama picked Merrell’s vegan barefoot style called Lithe Gloves. She picked a flashy blue pair and wore them while working out and running errands to break them in. Read more…

Jenn from The Green Parent answers the question ‘Could barefoot running shoes really help me run better than my current cushioned shoe?’ while testing out her Merrell Lithe Gloves shoes. Read more…
